    I wonder who designed the Olympus OM-1. In a time where SLR cameras were rather big and heavy the OM-1 was small and elegant.

    This may have been pointed out already, I realize this is an old post but you seemed to have overlooked a great one. The Polaroid SX-70 was designed by Charles Eames.

    My brother's Nikon F3 camera was the DSLR camera I ever used. Great video 🙂

    I miss Colani in this video. I think that any modern(D)SLR Design goes back to Luigi Colanis Design starting with the Canon T90 and the new EOS-Series. I still own and use a Canon EOS 650. Great Design. Great channel Ted. Many thanks for all your work.

    Another noticeable example of industrial designer applied in the camera industry is the Polaroid SX70 for which Edwin Land hired famous american designer Henry Dreyfuss. (Industrial designer myself) Great channel Ted!

    Giugiaro designed all my favourite things in my life, my Nikon SLRs, and my beautiful Alfa Romeo 159

    Ha, this is a great video! I have always loved the Nikon F3 design, and even though I never told anyone this, I always compared it's beauty to the design of the classic Ferrari car designs. Now I know why! Thank you for sharing!

    Nice of you to remember to associate cameras with famous designers. However, I think you could have done more in terms of model ilustration. Walter Teague will forever be remembered for his designs  for Kodak, especially the magnificent Kodak Bantam Special, that's an iconic camera. As for Hasselblad, weird choice, as everybody knows that the Hassy wasn't an original design, but closely based on a German camera, the Primaflex ( I think). Couldn't agree more about the influence of Giugiaro at Nikon, he even designed the first compact from Nikon, the L35 AF. You forgot, perhaps the biggest influence in camera design, FA Porsche and the Contax line of cameras. The Contax T is a master piece of design, as is the RTS, with styling cues that would stick to the brand right to the end.

    Hi Ted. Great to see some broader aspects of knowledge incorporated in the video. One of my claims to fame, apart from owning a modern Nikon, is that I own a Same [pronounced Sam-eh] Titan tractor which has a prominent plate "Ital Design Giugiaro" on the side. It is not surprising that he designed this design masterpiece in modern tractors, as it belonged to the holding company at the time of Same-Lamborghini-Hurlimann. Yes, its also available in white as a Lamborghini, a division which was spun off from the car company but was the base from which the car company grew.

    From Wikipedia
    Lamborghini's wealth allowed him to cultivate a childhood interest in cars, owning a number of luxury automobiles, including Alfa Romeos, Lancias, Maseratis, and a Mercedes-Benz.[20] He purchased his first Ferrari, a 250GT, in 1958, and went on to own several more. Lamborghini was fond of the Ferraris, but considered them too noisy and rough to be proper road cars, likening them to repurposed track cars.[20] When Lamborghini discovered that the clutch on his Ferrari was broken, and was actually the same clutch that he used on his tractors, Lamborghini went to Ferrari and asked for a better replacement. Ferrari responded, saying that he was just a tractor maker, and could not know anything about sports cars.[20][21][22] Lamborghini decided to pursue an automobile manufacturing venture with the goal of bringing to life his vision of a perfect grand tourer.

    Wish they would use better designer's nowadays, but who would they choose?

    Giugiaro's design covers from food trays to tractors…he's a genius. Here in Italy is impossible to not step into something Giugiaro has designed (Trains, cars, kitchens, appliances, forniture, water bottles, coffee machines, medical equipment etc.) he has even designed the FIBA basketball in between the Nikon D3 and the D4 🙂

    The history behind cameras is always great to know. It gives you something to think about as you handle these works of art from cheap fully manual to some of what was back then state of the art aperture, shutter speed selectable cameras.

    One reason I would never sell my Black mint condition XD11 with all the factory goodies or my Contax RX. They are works of art the more you know about them.

    Nice selection of cameras Ted, I didn't know that Walter Teaque designed the Polaroid. Another camera design and designer to think about is the Canon T90, designed by Luigi Colani. Its a design that has influenced pretty much every 35mm SLR since, plus its a damn fine camera.

    The F3 isn't a nice camera looking camera. I prefer the Pentax, Fuji and Minoltas from that generation

    Back in the 70's my neighbour had a Saab, and I loved the design and shape. I hadn't realised it was connected to the Hasselblad, though, so thanks for that nugget of information in another great video.

    I don't really like these shorter videos :/  They feel a bit rushed.  Maybe a length of 5-7 minutes a piece would better suit them?
