Hi, My name is John Nevill and I’ve been using cameras for more than 35 years. I spent 20 years using film and a further 15 years going digital. In 2014 I returned to film, albeit a fascination for vintage medium format cameras.
As a time served Mechanical Engineer, I have developed a passion and inquisitiveness for all things mechanical. I have rebuilt and restored cars, motorcycles, vintage sewing machines and cameras.
From 2007 until 2016, I was the UK distributor for Feisol carbon fibre support systems and maintained a career in Engineering management.
I originally started to document my vintage camera collection and restorations on Flickr, but soon realised that it would be better to start a dedicated blog.
At the outset, I will be transferring a lot stuff from Flickr, but over the coming months I hope to expand and develop this web site into something more to include detailed how-to’s, brand history and maybe even an outlet…who knows?….it’s early days!
Thanks for stopping by.
