    That was when you actually had to think before taking a photograph. I wonder how many of those guys took pictures of their meals with those beasts, to show their friends :smile:

    I have two Graflex SLRs and two Graphic press cameras. They're a lot of fun to use and practically bullet-proof. One of my Graflexes is 82 years old and still going strong.

    A collector in San Francisco has a few Graflex SLR's listed on Craigslist if you are interested including a 5x7 press Graflex.
