    CraigCamera.com is the world-recognized specialist in INSTRUCTION BOOKLETS for photographic equipment--you know, those elusive booklets that came with the equipment when it was new, and showed you how to use it. We stock more than 9,000 different booklets. As well, you will find more than 10,000 different pieces of collectible PHOTOGRAPHIC LITERATURE on our site (including repair books). Our page of more than 100 REPRINTED REPAIR MANUALS is additional material not included in our other pages of literature.

    ORDERING & PAYMENT, BRIEFLY My philosophy of business and peace of mind guarantees will be found on pages linked above. But briefly, my prices DO NOT include shipping and insurance charges. These will be added. Payment accepted includes cash, check (US funds or drawn on a US bank), Money Order, VISA or MASTERCARD. Sorry, no AMEX or DISCOVER at this time. Order by e-mail, snail-mail, phone or fax. See, simplicity itself!

    Special Purchase of Nishika 3-D Cameras!A "new" stereo/3-D concept began in the 1980's with the Nimslo, a four-lens camera taking standard 35mm print film; when processed and printed, the "layered" photograph appeared in 3-D, without special viewers or glasses. Nishika (I understand) acquired the Nimslo patents and produced the second generation of improved cameras using this process. The original Nimslo, as well as developing and printing, are available at i3-dx.com. I just made a special purchase of a limited number of Nashika cameras, all brand new in original packaging. I am offering these cameras at only $70.00 each. My price includes domestic U.S. shipping. These cameras are a lot of fun, order NOW!

    Site Update:I am making every attempt possible to remove "sold" items from my site on a (daily) basis, so that whatever you find here should be available. New additions will appear first on a "NEW ACQUISITIONS" page, and then be integrated into an overall site update.

    Important Announcement:Psst!! The Index column at the left keeps on going, even after the text on the right ends. Don't miss any of the categories!

    Important Announcement:Psst!! Some of you evidence confusion of terminology--INSTRUCTION BOOKLETS are the same as Owner's Manuals--you know, those booklets that come with equipment when you buy it new; those booklets that show you how to operate the equipment.

    My Camera Collector's Show Schedule


    Whether you are an amateur or advanced photographer, a photographic collector or a dealer, you've just arrived at what I hope will be one of the most interesting photographic sites you ever visit on the Web.

    You'll find more than 10,000 interesting items of photographica here, ranging from cameras and lenses to accessories, plenty of photographic literature and reference works, and more than 9,000 different photographic instruction books.

    Most of the items here are unique--not necessarily rare and valuable unique, but I-only-have-one-of-them unique. This only means that if you see something you want, grab it. And please don't stop visiting just because someone else grabbed something first.

    This site isn't as inter-active as we'd like it to be, but that's just a matter of programming, and will come along in time. For now, keep a pad and pencil handy, and note down the items you wish to order. Check the Terms and Ordering Information to see how easy it is to give me your money.

    Ready to get started? Just click on any of the UNDERLINED links on the top or at the left, and you're on your way!
