GONE BUT NOT FOR­GOT­TEN, PART 2

Camera - - CONTENTS -

The dig­i­tal imag­ing revo­lu­tion was too much for a num­ber of fa­mous cam­era brands which, for var­i­ous rea­sons, just couldn’t keep up. In the sec­ond part of this fea­ture, we look at the con­tri­bu­tions made by Chi­non, Yashica, Bron­ica, Rollei and Mamiya (which is ac­tu­ally still around, but only just).

PART 2

CHANGE DRIVEN BY TECH­NOL­OGY HAS BEEN A CON­STANT THROUGH­OUT THE EVO­LU­TION OF PHO­TOG­RA­PHY, BUT THE DIG­I­TAL REVO­LU­TION CRE­ATED THE BIG­GEST UP­HEAVAL AND NOT EV­ERY­BODY WAS STRONG ENOUGH TO SUR­VIVE. WE CON­TINUE TO CEL­E­BRATE SOME OF THE MA­JOR CAM­ERA BRANDS WHICH, FOR ONE REA­SON OR AN­OTHER, ARE NO LONGER AROUND.
