I've been a huge fan of NPR for decades, but I'm really growing weary of their stellar topic selection being followed up by a really rather inept job of commentary or reporting. I doubt that their leaps in logic and imposition of their own spin on a lovely story that stands on its own would even pass muster in middle school, let alone the hypercompetitive market of professional journalism post web2.x.

Dismissing the aircraft hangar project because it was lensless as a camera obscura? She seems to have just learned about the project one Google search ago and didn't have the attention span to keep reading and see the huge negative that resulted.

The story is not "look at the curious death throe of this technology from antiquity" but "as photography continues to expand into every nook and cranny of modern life, film photographers explore amazing niches that can help illustrate what sets that type of photography apart from others."

On the topic of NPR; that is the product of a socialized media outlet that will receive funding whether or not they can attract ratings, and a public outlet that must produce quality, desirable content in order to pay bills.

As for this camera, that is just awesome. I'm wondering how he gets film for this beast? Is that the size of a full width of sheet film from say, Kodak or Ilford off of their coating line? Or does film like this have to be hand made?
