    The Bronica Manual - William Cheung

    This book on Bronica cameras seems to reach scary prices on the auction site in the UK at least. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-Bronica-Ma...QQcmdZViewItem

    But is it any good???

    Photographic books seem to be strange things on e-bay. I have the Rotary Process Manual by John Tinsley. It seems a very ordinary book although the info is good but that went for over £33 on e-bay. The common link here may be books out of print and which were regarded as a classic on their subject.

    I couldn't see any copies of John Blakemore's B&W Workshop by e-bay sellers, including the specialist Powersellers for less than about £8/9 but then found it on Amazon for £1.99!

    I'd be wary of books on e-bay. If they can't be had for love nor money elsewhere then you pays the rate but for some reason photographic books on e-bay seem able to exploit a market where supply and demand do not conspire to produce the lowest price.

    As recommended here on APUG I will in the future check Amazon first every time.

    I hadn't thought of checking Amazon, but it turns out they have 4 listed from £25 to £35, with the £35 one being the only one that says hardback. The RRP was £12.95!! :rolleyes:

    Used books try abes. Many of the sellers on Abes are in the UK.

    Still a wide range but seems cheaper?
