More big cameras

Wednesday 3 July 2002

When I wrote about Elsa Dorfman and her massive camera, I didn’t know that the Wisner Classic Mfg. Co. (the largest wooden camera maker in the world) can sell you a new 20 x 24 Technical Field Camera.

This is the king of field cameras, for the truly motivated. This camera is not for every one, but no camera can match its breathtaking results if the ultimate in large contact prints is your goal. Built to order only, allow up to twelve weeks for delivery. This camera has full movements on the front standard including geared front rise and fall, base tilt and geared axis tilt in the rear, and a rear focus knob facing the photographer for easy simultaneous viewing and focusing. This camera is simple and intuitive to use, and has no unnecessary complications to slow down the creative process. This is a true field camera and the only one of its kind.

Only US $9,000. You should also allow in your budget for a tripod, some film holders, a lens or two, and a black cloth. Order the Polaroid back to suit ($15,000) and Studio Stand ($5,000), and give Elsa some competition.
