    Marty Forscher (1922-2009)

    Just read the sad news that Marty Forscher, who was probably the most well known camera repairman and inventor of the twentieth century, owner of Professional Camera Repair in Manhattan and inventor of the Polaroid back for 35mm cameras, just passed away this past Wednesday. Here's a writeup on Mike Johnston's blog--

    Over the years he became the D-76 of camera repair - the standard by which all others are judged.

    R.I.P. Marty.
