    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.
