      Thanks for the nice comments about my new book. Here are some examples:

      "An extremely well done book. Absolute highlight of this book is clearly the chapter about Meopta, which is also the most comprehensive chapter!"

      Martin Rowek, Projectionist Forum

      "A really great book. Impressive what so many companies have planned and then often not implemented. The chapter about Albrecht Graf Goertz, the creator of one of the most beautiful cars in the world (BMW 507), thrilled me. He also designed Fujicas! Also very impressive what Leica created for the showcase for 25 years."

      Helge L., Projectionist Forum

      "Thank you very much for this work, a wonderful book!"

      Film Mechanic, Projectionist Forum

      "What a treat! Am only on the Arri chapter, but already deeply immersed."

      Friedemann Wachsmuth, Projectionist Forum

      "Am also completely enthralled! Thank you for the wonderful book and for the immense work that went into it."

      Mamingu, Projectionist Forum

      "Very many beautiful illustrations of the cameras. And what I also really like: the cheerful, smug tone in the headlines and articles. Anyway, it reads very easily – just also because of the casual remarks."

      Regular 8, Projectionist Forum

      "It's beautiful!"

      "Well done, excellent work!"

      Lee Mannering, 8mm Forum

      "Highly recommended!"

      Maurizio di Cintio, Super 8 Group, Facebook

      „Fabulous Monday! When I got home for dinner and saw that Jürgen Lossau's latest book had arrived: a clever treatise on 158!!! prototypes of Super 8 and 16mm cameras. A first look reveals amazing things, like Marcel Beaulieu's photography with a prototype for Double Super 8 or an Eumig with motorized but not automatic focus and stereo sound. Exceptional volume, highly recommended, a MUST for any Super-8 creative!“

      Ignacio Benedeti Corzo, Super 8mm, Facebook

      “Anything put out by Jürgen Lossau is top notch!”

      Shane C. Collins, Super 8mm, Facebook

      “This is an excellent book. I finally see the developments of other designers. Very interesting. Now I'd like to know even more about the designer of the Auto-Carena.”

      Shigeo Mizukawa, camera designer for FujiFilm, Japan

      “All the other books of Jürgen Lossau are fabulous, I will get this one also.”

      Hyker Richard LaRiviere, Cine Camera Collectors, Facebook

      “An avid photo fair-goer, Lossau is also the author of many books and editor of a Super 8 magazine. It's great to see that film camera manufacturers have been working on new models until recently. Jürgen has documented quite a bit.”
