    Newly discovered color photos from Hitler's home

    Quite simply, interesting. I wonder what camera the photographer used, and also what film. It's amazing to see photos of Hitler's time in color. My personal fave is the one of Hitler at a New Year's party. Look at that swirl in the background!

    It was probably either Agfacolour Neu or Agfacolour Ultra transparency films both of which were very slow around 2 or 4 ASA.

    Add in there gypsys and other "undesirables".

    A ton of flash must be used if you want to expose an iso 4 film indoors huh.

    I think that the provenance of these pictures was established a few years ago, and that they are now held by Time Life. Possibly some have just been newly released, but color photos of the house itself are very well known, appearing in various contemporary books, and even on sets of postcards (I have a few cards from the time, and some have the description "Agfacolor" in the printing on the reverse).

    There is a lot of info about Agfacolor from its first introduction on
    http://www.photomemorabilia.co.uk/Co...arly_Agfa.html.

    I recall also a few years ago that pictures from that era taken on Kodachrome were published...I recall a thread (not sure if it was here or on another forum) which queried if this were possible, and it seemed that there was a Kodak lab in Berlin up to the time the US entered WW2.

    As David says, it is good that these are preserved and published to remind us of the evils of the time.

    ... and gypsies (Sinti and Roma mostly) and communists and socialists and tradeunionists and priests and... and... It was a so tremendous tragedy that distinctions or rankings are meaningless.

    The architectural shots of the interiors definitely look like time exposures. Not sure about the two with people...the shadows don't particularly look like flash, but IDK.

    Given the big flashbulbs and reflectors of that era (the 1930's bulbs were about the size of a standard light bulb!), it probably wasn't too difficult to use iso 4 film indoors....remembering also that 10ASA Kodachrome was in use up to about 1960 with relatively small bulbs.

    And the disabled and mentally ill, along with race defilers, the evil that man does and never learns from history.
