9780122875700: Camera Technology: The Dark Side of the Lens

For anyone who has ever wondered how cameras work, this book is a pleasant way to learn. It is generously endowed with enough fundamentals to satisfy the technical specialist, without intimidating the casual but curious amateur photographer. The author has repaired, modified, and designed and analyzed cameras for the past forty five years. With this background, he goes beyond describing camera functions based on advertised data, instead the book explains how various cameras really work. The book peels off the cover panels and lets you look into the dark side of the lens. The dozen or so formulas use simple math and the drawings alone are worth the price of admission.

  • Describes how cameras work and how well they overcome the difficulties in making a technically perfect photo
  • Covers causes of image faults
  • Presents unique methods for testing cameras
  • Covers integration of optics, electronics, and mechanics in contemporary cameras

Review:

"One of the most fascinating things Goldberg does is to offer some of his own solutions to the technical problems in modern camera design. His idea of image-surface-to-film optimization as a solution to the film-curvature problem is wonderful and one I expect will catch on in the camera-making industry....Camera Technology is the first attempt I've seen at breaking down the barriers between photography how-to books and the intently technical articles that give more scientific background and detail than I, as a photographer, really want." --LASER FOCUS WORLD

"Norman Goldberg's book is an excellently practical contribution to the literature of this important and neglected subject. It will be of value to specialists and to the general technical user alike....A really useful feature of the book is the inclusion of the details of several pieces of ingenious and practical test equipment that the author has devised for his own use. This feature alone... will gain this book a long-term place on many technical optics bookshelves." --CONTEMPORARY PHYSICS

"We think Camera Technology his new book represents a much needed contribution to photo literature for fans such as the readers of Popular Photography." --POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY

"The book is remarkable...not like any other book I have ever seen. Based on the author's experience as a repairman and writer, he has acquired a unique fund of knowledge about cameras and camera design that is hard to duplicate anywhere. The detailed description of mechanisms and the wonderful explanatory diagrams could hardly be improved upon. This book is just about perfect for all those who wish to know more about camera technology." --RUDOLF KINGSLAKE
