The technical collection is unique, and an important part of Preus museum.

The collection illustrates the technical development from the camera obscura in the 1700s to today's digital cameras. The collection also features a wide range of specialized cameras, with Thomas Suttons Water lens camera as a particular treasure. The vast collection of three-colour cameras must also be mentioned, as well as spy cameras and representative collections, including Kodak and Leica cameras.
