    The only thing to shoot that monstrosity with is a 40mm quad Bofors.

    That last animated graphic is impressive, but I don't think it takes into account the upsidedown/reverse of the image at the focal plane.

    I need someone to use my 38mm Hasselblad 903 SWC to take a photograph at that location with the Jeep completely filling the frame.

    Anyone interested in a road trip to Moab?
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Two problems with that:
    1. Too heavy for the vehicle
    2. No stereo headphones

    For more appropriate platforms see:

    The Larc is a bit large, but Sargent York will meet your needs

    In particular look at Part 4 http://staceydavid.com/emvideo/modal...be/CPBfvqIexgQ


    Happy Trails to You.

    The graphic is illustrating a principle.

    The specifics will vary depending on the direction of shutter movement and other factors.

    That does not in any way invalidate the description of the process.

    don't be such a party pooper !
    you should know that jacques henri was standing on his head
    when he took the photograph, or a thief was holding him by the ankles trying to
    shake all his francs free from his pockets, or he held his camera upside down trying to slow the shutter
    down like you can with a speed graphic to get it to be slowish ... or ...

    A speed graphic is easy to shoot upside down. Just gotta use your left hand to operate the shutter and darkslide. The bed makes a nice sunshade. I'd imagine a graflex SLR would be a little harder to use upside down; that's where you need someone holding you upside down.
