Camera collections and repairs

CJ's Classic Camera Collection

CJ's Classic Camera Collection - a very well put together website featuring a comprehensive collection with an emphasis on German cameras. CJ also offers a camera repair service, and is located here in the UK (Edinburgh).

Simon Hawketts's Photo Blog

Simon Hawketts's Photo Blog - I'm not normally a follower of Blogs, but Simon's manages to combine the structure and stability of a website with the freshness of a Blog, and it's nice to visit once in a while, to see what's been added to the collection.

Favorite Classics - Sadly this site is no longer active, but it still contains useful information about repairing cameras. The down-side is - posts are listed by date, so it can take a lot of time to trawl through the archive and search for information on a particular camera or problem.

link

Fix Old Cameras - A collection of clear YouTube videos showing common repairs to classic cameras.

link

Oddity Cameras - A collection of stuff you've never seen or heard of before.

link

Phil Cameras - A collection of advertising literature, tidily grouped by year, and then alphabetically by manufacturer. Some, but not all, of the material is in English.

link

How To Spot a Fake Leica - There are many similar sites on the Web, but this one describes the differences between a real and fake Leica rather well.

link

Camera-Wiki - The extent and quality of information is variable, but this site is normally my first port of call when searching for basic information on makes and models.

Webmasters tools

link

Scroll to Top Button. Here's a nice site that provides free Scroll to Top javascripts. Very easy to install and lightweight code. Used on this website.

link

Dynamic Drive. This site has some very elegant scripts, which even if they don't have a practical application for your site, are nice to see and know about (maybe for some other time).

link

Google's Page Speed Insights. This is a really good tool, especially since Google have changed their ranking criteria. Some of the fixes required are a button click away; others are a little more complex.

link

Tiny PNG. A no-fuss, free, online png optimiser (does jpegs too).

link

CSS Drive - Colors Palette Generator. This tool generates a palette of colours from any uploaded image.

link

W3Schools.com - This is where I lookup any code I can't quite remember, or am not familiar with. I like that the content is kept up to date with more recent developments.

 
Sites I just like

link

Animals Asia - I am an active supporter of the rescue of Bears from barbaric bile farming.

The Occidental Observer - Some very interesting articles here for anyone who questions the wisdom of the Liberal agenda to impose European multiculturalism.

link

Collectables Direct - I don't actually own any of these figures, but I am immensely impressed by their detail and quality.
