    Nothing new under the sun...

    Disregarding the recapitulation of photography through the digital movement, I submit that there is Nothing New Under the Sun for conventional photo hardware; we are complete - however there remains an infinite number of photographs yet to be made. It seems the ideal demarcation for mavens in both camps; I remain analog - outside the day job.

    Rebuttal, comments.

    We still don't have the Minox view camera. Consider the possibilities!

    "Also available (at extra cost): the 20x microscopic reflex viewer -- indispensible for verifying depth of field and Schiempflug movements! Like all accessories for the Minox View, this one is available in International Orange, for those who must work over grass or shag carpet."
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    I think the fine folks at Graflex are working on those. You've seen the Grafocus back, yes?--

    Hi David,

    Nice link but I'm confused. They had auto-diaphrams on the RB series, speed selector on the SpeedGraphics and now an auto focus back. If they can only get Canon on board with image stabilizing software...

    Just think of the market for an auto-everything, point and shoot 5X7. If they could get Metz onboard for OTF-TTL flash, it would be the perfect wedding camera.

    LOL

    If you've got the money, honey, I'm sure Zeiss has the time.

    While not a Minox; Ilford sold a 35mm Monorail camera back in the early 1960's.

    The camera an Ilford KI Monobar, was manufactured for them by Kennedy Instruments, it offered the technical movements usually featured only on larger format cameras.
