    Love the Nick Collingwood entry. I’ve seen a few of those back in the day, and like the Speed Graphic, were considered indestructible (well, at least always fixable). Love the pix of people too….

    • I look at those cameras and think “so much complication” and move on. But you can’t deny they make stunning images (in capable hands).
