    Yep, I remember that too, now that you mention it. Cranking up the memory banks... I think it was just "UPI Telephoto", and was their trademarked term for it.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    And are you aware that Larry Burrows was the lab technician that fried Robert Capa's negatives from the D-Day landings.

    If you're interested in Larry Burrows and photojournalism during the Vietnam War, "Lost Over Laos" is an interesting book -- the title comes from where the helicopter carrying Burrows and others went down.

    I was a US Army photographer stationed in Germany from 1966 thru1968. We used Speed Graphics, but als had a M3 kit and a 70mm Combat camera . A Nikon FT cost $95 and a Leica M4 body was $164 at the Canadian PXs.
