100 Iconic Cameras

Such a beautiful poster from the guys over at Pop Chart Lab, a meticulously illustrated catalogue of 100 landmark cameras, put together from over a century of our photographic history, depicting both professional and amateur models, I’ve still got a 1952 Leica M3, and a 1982 Ricoh KR10 Super which looks the strikingly similar to the illustrated 1982 Nikon FM2.

This is a must have print for us photography geeks…which ones have you still got?

  1. The poster is awesome ,from a qualified photographer’s point of view….
    But also for an interior decorator, must say , it ‘ s of a certain importance!

  2. Now able to enlarge … so with my little netbook screen is it very diffecult to see .. what camera is one this … I truely hope that Hasselblad is on there … *smile I don’t think I ever owned an iconic camera and will never do. Great post.

    1. Your lucky there’s 3, the 500 C/M, 500 EL and the 1600F…very iconic cameras indeed.

      BTW How you doing, I haven’t been able to catch up for a while, and was wondering if you got over you bad spell?

  3. Great poster, albeit never totally complete. Owned a few of the ones shown here, used a few more, with as personal favourites Leica M4P and Nikon FM2. In the twin lens category I go for Yashica Mat (not shown on this poster) as a favourite because of its cheap price, good results and popularity.

    1. Hi, when you click on it and it goes to the black bordered screen, click on the View full size 2243×3000 bit of text in the bottom right hand side… hope it works 🙂

  4. I’ve owned 7 that are displayed here. My first camera, at age 5, was the Kodak Brownie. I had an Argus C3, a Zeiss Ikon Ikoflex, a Bolsey C22, and a Kodak Instamatic. I still have a Pentax 1000 and a Pentax ME F.
