    As I was on vacation last week I stumbled upon this poor fella in a museum.

    It was sad to think It will most likely never be used to take photographs again………what a waste…..such a waste........(head bowed over)

    Looks to me to be in the prime of his life.

    Cameras like that are like violins. They should be played.

    I know of one in a local "museum"... the camera is huge - the bellows needs to be repaired, but on the front, there is a huge petzval lens with three digits number - very, very old...

    They won't put it on display because of the bellows....

    There is a nice old wood camera in the display case at the Yosemite Visitor center, too...and in museums across the world, too.

    At least they can usually be seen. But think about all the cameras in private collections -- hidden away.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    The local museum near me has a sorry looking LF slr on display and I'm approaching them with a view to estoring it. They are actively using other museum items to show how they are/were used so they may be willing to listen.

    I think it's a damn shame any time a camera that could be used instead is being displayed in a museum or hid away in some collector's vault. Cameras are made to be used and enjoyed, sitting on a shelf they're just inanimate objects but in the hands of a photographer they come alive.
