    No. I am sorry. My camera was made in 1928. According to Calvin, my personal patron saint, color was not invented until the 1930's.

    ugh... I just came back from using my 4x5 at Queen Elizabeth Park here in Vancouver. People really like to stare it seems. Oh well, I just keep to myself. I think the funniest thing was when I set the camera up next to some guy with a Canon something-or-other dslr. His face said "inadequacy". Ahahaha!

    Nice, I remember asking my dad that same question. But I don't remember his answer, probably he said there wasn't color film back then.

    As of View cameras being cannons, movie cameras or accordions the people only know them from TV, movies and the popular culture so it might be acceptable that they don't know what it is. Still, they remain.
