Toronto. For years a number of sources were referenced for valuation of cameras. Eventually McKeown’s Price Guide to Antique and Classic Cameras prevailed and became the standard for many people. I have the 11th edition which is some 900+ pages released in January 2001 for the 2001-2002 years. It covers over 25,000 cameras. An additional version was released a bit before the devastation of the digital era hit collectors and camera valuations alike.
We were recently advised that a new 4 VOLUME and online edition of this historic guide would appear in 2016.
Jim McKeown sent us this notification:
“After many years of research, the Online Edition of McKeown’s Camera Encyclopedia and Price Guide is on track to launch in 2016, with about 50,000 illustrated entries instantly accessible by computer, tablet, or phone. The text is English with the option for automatic machine translation into all major languages.
“Well in advance of the official launch, there will be a Beta version to test all functions and operations of the website on different types of devices. The conditions for participation in the Beta test will be communicated to participants in the survey at mckcamera.com
“The multiple-volume printed edition will be available at some time after the full online edition is operating. This will allow for feedback and corrections before the final edition goes to press. The printed edition will be available only by advance subscription. All respondents to the survey at mckcamera.com will be notified when the Online Edition and the Printed Edition are available.”
