Old Photography Gear


This photo was taken in a flea market. Some of you may recognise :
  • the Speed Graphic, initially produced in 1912 with later versions continued until 1973, probably the most famous press camera, standard equipment for many American press photographers until the mid-1960s, especially Arthur "Weegee" Fellig, who covered New York in the 1930s & '40's
  • the Canon F-1, Canon's first truly professional-grade 35mm SLR system 1971)
