Nice, but I don't speak Italian and I can hardly read the yellow subtitles.
Thanks for posting
Nice one! Thanks for posting!
I would love to see a documentary program about the legendary Martin Forscher, Professional Camera Repair, in NYC, and the many custom modifications, etc. performed for client professional photographers. He holds a number of patents on photographic inventions.
"He got his start as a camera technician working with one of the greats of photography -- Edward Steichen -- in the U.S. Navy in World War II.
"I was hired because the man recruiting for Steichen thought I knew a lot about cameras," he said. "The fact is, I didn't know anything. They sent me up to New York to buy tools. I got back and locked myself up in a room. I got a brand-new Rolleiflex off the shelf and stripped it down completely, took every screw out of it. I put it in a box, shook it up and spent three weeks putting it back together."
Great short video. I particularly like "If I could talk to a camera, I would thank her."
Why would anyone go to the Lounge?
At least the lounge isn't the cesspool the soapbox is.
I didn't even know we had both, because I never visit either. I waste far too much time on the on-topic forums as it is!
Thanks for posting that!
I enjoyed that - thanks!
As we got no "history" forum I posted quite some historic things of the industry in the Lounge.
Where by now it got deleted...
Fascinating. I wish the video was longer, imagine how many anecdotes this man could tell us.
