Zero Megapixels

By Big_Beavis  
Many thanks for the c and c on my last upload.

I found this camera in my Dad's things. It's at least 60 years old as 'it's always been there'
I don't suppose it was new when he bought it and he didn't have a light-meter, but we still have some great photos that he took with it.
It brought memories flooding back of names like Gratispool, Gamages, Headquarters and General Supplies, happy days when if you could afford to buy something it wasn't obselete before you got home.

Thanks everybody.
Must be very common, our local 2nd hand emporium charges Art students about 25 for them (for project work) Smile

Looking at this started us thinking of how far things have progressed but what a beautiful camera this is.

A nice bit of vintage kit to it still takes superb images (in your hands, of course).

I believe an identical camera ( similar) lays in drawer in my house---Mom used it to make photos of me to send to Dad who was in Britain fighting a war--- (a reconnaissance pilot)--talk about always been there---- she got some lovely pictures, ---which I am now scanning and reprinting digitally.

I believe I took my first photos with it---(with a lot of help)

Love the image!

I have one very similar to this in my "china cabinet" (as my gran used to call them!). It came from a friend and I just have it on display. Your image is absolutely wonderful - so full of detail.

PS: the mention of Gratispool brought memories flooding back! I'd forgotten about them - my dad used them all the time!

a fantastic old camera...
know what, I'd still love to take pictures with my old view camera. When I take buildings, I often think, that used to be so easy but no-one developes 4x5" trannies in this country any more.

Yes, happy days indeed, and no electronics to fail and you don't need a degree to use it.
excellent shot Dave.
