    Check out the pictures grom the Ansco Shur Flash box camera we passed around the country last year. Lots of nice stuff from this beat up cardboard wonder.

    Actually it had been a quite interesting experience to go back to the camera I once started with at the age of 8, almost shocking how little technology is needed to get a decent neg, after all these years of believing in the "better" gadget !

    Tho never ever having been myself one of those gear nuts this mad me thoughtful anyway about what role at all the gadget should play for me. Still less than I had thought, I'd say now.

    All though I am not a user of box cameras I am not against them. The orginization, to which I do not belong, is dedicated to helping those that have come to realize that they are powerless to help themselves in the presence of a box camera and that there exist a higher power that will help them to eliminate this addiction..actually there are a total of 12 steps.

    I believe that the acid test is this: Can you load a box camera with a roll of film and take 1 photo and remain comfortable or it is necessary for you to finish off the roll? If you are uncomfortable with the taking of a single exposure then it is wise for you to seek help.

    Each person to their own form of gout. I myself qualify to be a member of PFA..Perforated Film Anonymous. Sadly, however, I have yet to hit bottom and I am at a point of being happy in my addiction.

    Oh no Claire! I have failed the test miserably!!! Just one picture at a time? Is that possible? No shurely you jest?! after all, with my big ol' brownie I only get 5 images from an adapted 120 roll and doesn't it seam a waste to just capture "1" when you know there are 4 more calling your name and saying "go ahead Doug, there's only a couple more, what could it hurt??"

    There are at least twelve steps between clicking the shutter and pulling the print out of the wash. Just repeat the process until you feel better.

    I didn't realize you could put the cameras back together again after taking them apart. I disassembled one and the entire shutter/lens system was contained in a block of wood and some tin that could be taped to the front of a 4x5 lensboard. Fun to play with.

    I'm with you. A few years ago I picked up an Ansco Shur Shot just for fun, and now it rides along with me everywhere!

    No box cameras for me: I'm far too sophisticated for that. For me it's old folders. Voightlander Bessa, Rolfix 6x9 and a Moskva 5. Well, there is the Spectator 120 and the old Spartus 120 Box Cameras. But they see little use. May ten rolls each in the past year.

    Last month, I'm standing on the pier in some small town in Maine focusing my Moskva and up comes this 30-something guy with his Canon Rebel XT...same model I used to illustrate my last two books...and says, "Haven't you ever heard of digital?"

    "Shore have, Sonny," I said. "Ain't that a new cough syrup fer little tykes?"
