    One-shot Cameras... any resources?

    Howdy everyone,

    I've been intrigued lately by one-shot cameras; you know, the ones that took 3 separation negatives at once. It's hard to find any good resources online, does anybody have some links or something?

    I'd like to see the high end models, as well as more consumer oriented ones (though I doubt many consumers used them).

    Cheers

    Ok, apparently these were some top manufacturers.... Jos-Pe, Bermpohl, Klein and Mirkut.

    It's funny how after you post, you start to find stuff....

    Get Sandy King's book on Carbro off the Alternative Photography site. I think it is really the place to start, since you can always use a camera with filters and film rather than a dedicated color camera to take the multiple images. Start simple....LOL.

    I have also been thinking of using a sliding back arrangement on an 8x10 to do 4 4x5 images, and just hold the filters in front of the lens by hand as I expose for each color. Then cut those up and do carbro tissues from that. ---

    Many ways to do this without having the fancy camera from day one.

    * When the film you put in the camera is worth more than the camera you put the film in... *
    * When I started using 8x10, it amazed me how many shots were close to the car. *

    Actually, you've beat me to the punch! I was thinking about carbro/tri-color-carbon, but I'm not honestly considering that at the moment whatsoever. (still cutting my teeth on black & white)

    Really I'm just interested in seeing the designs and reading about them. Were there any that didn't use filters, but instead reflectors? I'm reading Friedman's 'History of Color Photography' and he says there are mirrors that will selectively reflect only certain colors (primaries) with 90% efficiency. With this in mind, I'm surprised they used filters at all. But who knows how practical/affordable this other system would have been.

    Jeff, do you do your own color carbro? I'd really like to know more about it and its modern day feasibility. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

    Y'all shouldn't be so US-centric.

    I see from y'r profile that you were hatched after foreign language requirements had, for the most part, gone away. More child abuse, IMO.

    I concur. Two things that are educational system needs.... the metric system & foreign language requirements.

    That's only one thing; the metric system is a foreign language.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    haha!

    I'd argue that what we use is more of a foreign language. It doesn't make any f-ing sense! What, how many ounces in a pound?, wait, how many fl. ounces in a quart?, doh, how many pints to a gallon?!?! AAGHHGGH

    Please, give me multiples of 10 or give me death
