    cameras for early car racing: the car wheels often the came out oval. shutter speeds, at max. were slow on graflex or even "box cameras", But, those cameras can be used today ! vin p.s. there were " roll film adaptors" for some of those smaller graflex, , but the cloth shutter roll, useing cotton thread did not the "test of time.".

    I will bet that if anybody asked him what type of camera he was using, he could have said it was a prototype holographic project camera like they used it Star Wars. :bouncingsmileys:

    Very few folks, even those telephoto junkies, are old enough to remember those old time wonders.

    Interesting article, thanks for posting.

    I remember reading a 1959 photo magazine talking about the 35mm being a toy. How 4x5 Graflex was the "sports camera". Their logic was, you set up way up in the stands so you camera covered the whole field of play, when the play happened, you snapped a picture and when you got back to the darkroom, you would be able to crop the "action shot" because you captured everything, you would be missing none of the action. Strange how technique changed in a few short years.

    Having said that, as a film photographer I was surprised to learn that digital concert photographers often do the same thing: they set up to capture the whole stage, click away like crazy and then crop out the scenes they are interested in. Would be of absolutely no interest to me but if you are after results, maybe ok. Not sure there is much skill or set in it but hey!

    how about the old panograph cameras? they were still in use in the 50's. they were famous for military graduation photos. the cameras and the photos are quite collectable. vin
