    History in photography - Titanic

    Hi all,

    Just added two new short video's to the APUG Video section that I liked. One a slide show of historic images and a few snippets of film of the building and maiden voyage of the Titanic, the other a short history of the Photo Booth...

    History In Photography - Titanic

    NYTimes.com - Weekend Explorer: History of the Photo Booth

    Enjoy!

    Thank You, Marco.

    Does anyone of you Apuggers still has an analogue photo booth around where he lives?
    I don't.

    No, but digital ones as a heritage of the old analog ones yes. My nearest railway station... at least, I am sure it will be digital by now, haven't ever had a real close look to be honest though.

    I remember the instructions to leave in the chute that the strip was dropped into as it was a little sticky if you handled the surface straight away. That was the 60's when the prints were all B&W. Given the servicing each booth must have needed compared to digital booths I'd be amazed if there are any left in Europe at all.

    But now I am puzzled. The video there, says it is a B&W photobooth according to the text. But I see some colored liquids (Orange, Yellow, Green), what chemicals are in there

    That video was great! Makes me want to see one of these in real life! I am now going to be on the hunt for an analog photobooth!

    I enjoy that! There is a photo booth at a shopping mall where I live, I'm sure it is digital.
