By Thia Shi Min, 14 Mar 2014
Frenchman Sylvain Halgand has painstakingly cataloged the world’s vintage cameras on the website, Collection Appareils.
It is evident that Halgand has invested the time and effort into collecting, photographing, and gathering as much information on each featured camera. He even lists the types of cameras in alphabetical order along with the year they were made, detailing their places in history.
It will take some time to trawl through the site—have a look at the picks from Messy Nessy Chic, or scroll down below for a sneak peek at what you can expect to find on the website.
