I think you're right, Mike. I checked on Graflex.org, and Les, who knows such things, says the Grafmatic was introduced in 1950.Originally Posted by MikeS
I've also got bunch of Grafmatics and a Kinematic holder. I think the Kinematic was manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio. It's nice to have 10 sheets in one holder for an afternoon stroll, but it is flimsier than the Grafmatics. If I'm not careful, it's possible to pull the inner box right out of the holder and watch the loaded septums go flying. Fortunately that only happened when I was testing it the first time.
For the 5x7" Press Graflex, I've got a plate bag mag with film sheaths and a film bag mag. That plate mag must have weighed a ton with 12 glass plates in it!
