Some cameras on exhibition will be more than a hundred years old. Pictures of the cameras that we could not display will be show. The exhibition may not be complete but we will shown the best we can,” said U Kyaw Thet Min the organizer of the exhibition, said the press conference at the Orchid Hotel in Yangon on 7th October.

        At the exhibition, about 150 cameras will be showcased including cameras used circa 1900. The event organizer starts collecting the cameras 15 to 16 years ago. To date he collected over 500 cameras of over 40 different types.
