Kamera Rebyū: Kurashikku Kamera Senka (カメラレビュー:クラシックカメラ専科, Camera review: A special course in classic cameras) was a Japanese quarterly devoted to classic cameras, published in Tokyo by Asahi Sonorama. Each issue has well over a hundred pages, few of which are used for advertising. The main area of interest was cameras from the 1920s to the 1960s. Although Leica cameras were predictably covered with a degree of attention that seems obsessive (even ludicrous or pathological), the magazine was otherwise fairly democratic, willing to devote entire articles to much less prestigious brands, such as Mycro.

Each issue clearly announces its main subject of interest on the front cover, and this cover story accounts for a large percentage of the content. A less conspicuous cover story can also account for many pages: thus for example issue 23 has over sixty pages on vintage lenses and over twenty on Topcon leaf-shutter SLRs.

Kamera Rebyū: Kurashikku Kamera Senka started as a supplement to another periodical, Kamera Rebyū (Camera Review), and so for example issue 8 of the former, published in autumn 1986, describes itself (conspicuously, on the front) as a separate issue (別冊, bessatsu) of, and (inconspicuously, on the back) as issue 45 of Kamera Rebyū.[1] Later issues of Kurashikku Kamera Senka do not mention being special issues of something else. It became a quarterly from no. 19 (December 1991). The magazine ceased its publication after issue no.84 (June 2007).

Although the periodical has an English subtitle (Camera Review: All about Historical Cameras), its content is entirely in Japanese. Back issues are not only available from the publisher but also routinely stocked by camera stores in Japan: the recent issues have ISBN numbers and they are retailed just like books.
