The author has repaired, modified, and designed and analyzed cameras for the past forty five years. With this background, he goes beyond describing camera functions based on advertised data, instead the book explains how various cameras really work. The book peels off the cover panels and lets you look into the dark side of the lens. The dozen or so formulas use simple math and the drawings alone are worth the price of admission.

Describes how cameras work and how well they overcome the difficulties in making a technically perfect photo Covers causes of image faults Presents unique methods for testing cameras Covers integration of optics, electronics, and mechanics in contemporary cameras. Other editions - View all Camera Technology: I think the strongest distinguishing feature of this book is the skill with which the author personally produced nearly all of its many illustrations and diagrams.
From the look of the graphics, I would guess that he used a bit-mapped application similar to Apple's classic MacPaint program.

Such software, while capable of many useful artistic effects, was not designed with technical applications in mind. Nevertheless I was repeatedly impressed by Goldberg's uncanny ability to illustrate intricate mechanisms and sophisticated concepts with admirable clarity.
And because author and illustrator are the same person, the correlation between text and graphics is virtually perfect. An excellent example would be Figure 2. I would call the figure a masterpiece of essentially freehand drawing on a computer. The clearest, most complete explanation of all factors and mechanisms involved in exposure, timing, and focusing.
