In the digital era, most people look for a handy digital camera with multiple functions. Old cameras may look like bulky antiques in comparison, but they have unique features and strengths. "Remembrance of the Avant-garde: Archival Camera Collection Exhibition", organised by the Hong Kong Film Archive (HKFA) of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, showcases more than 60 pieces of camera equipment. A veteran cinematographer and experimental film artists of the 1970s also share with audiences their valuable experience on the joy of filming.
