    US made cameras around 1944

    I'm planning my own personal invasion of Normandy next year. As a US child of the '40s, I'd like to "invade" with a US made camera of the era. Graflex press and Kodak 35 are the cameras I've figured out so far. Open to suggestions.

    Thanks
    Jim

    You got to have an Argus C3!

    There is also the Kodak Medalist, but it's a 620 camera and the film might be an issue.

    In the 1940's, 35mm was not really a "big" thing in the US. There is no substitute for Square Inches.

    Mopar_guy is correct. Do it right and bring a Deardorff V8 with a Ries tripod!

    And don't forget the 14" Kodak Commercial Ektar lens!

    Although they're not US made, if you want to do the Robert Capa thing, bring a Contax rangefinder. Just don't let someone rush the souping of your film
