    Interesting, but some questionable omissions and inclusions. And what's with the weird F-1?

    I'm disappointed by the fact that the F1 is taller than the P67 next to it.

    I actually think it would be a more interesting poster if they put them in order of relative size, so the Kodak would look 15x bigger than the Minox spy camera. Even the RZ doesn't look that much bigger than the "Lomography Action Sampler".

    I have 14 of the cameras on that chart:


    1. Kodak Brownie 1900
    2. Argus C3
    3. Kodak Six-20
    4. Rolleiflex Automat
    5. Crown Graphic
    6. Polaroid 95
    7. Kodak Pony
    8. Ansco Shur-Flash
    9. Yashica-D
    10. Kodak Instamatic
    11. Minox
    12. Polaroid SX-70
    13. Pentax K-1000
    14. Pentax ME

    Fifteen if you count the Canon Digital Rebel but we're not counting digicams here, are we?

    But that is not an ME- it's an ME-F.

    What I find sad is that the most recent film camera is a Holga.

    Yea interesting, but odd poster, but the scale is really annoying, designing it to a set scale wouldnt have been that hard as all the info is out there on the web. Also there are two argus C3s while some other cameras were left out.

    I also saw the F-1, the pentaprism is not that tiny! lol Also I didnt think the iphone or the gopro should have been on the list as their main purpose in design is a phone and a video camera, while all others on the list were still image only.

    There is someone here on apug that actually has great images of cameras with a grid behind them to judge scale. I forget who exactly, but the images are really nice and useful. The book Camera by Todd Gustavson also has lots of nicely laid out images of a multitude of cameras for anyone into it, I bought the hardcover version of it awhile ago, and I think the paper back is very affordable, even more so used.

    Also, this would be a fun poster for people with lots of cameras, if you can just make the poster customizable, have people input their cameras, and make a dartboard from it! Throw a dart and you can pick a camera you want for the day!

    Yeah, that's the worst thing, and the rewind knob is to close to the edge, and... and... well, the picture just sucks!

    I like that idea! I may just do that for myself. Of course with my luck, the day I have to do a wedding the dart would hit one of my 110 cameras.
