View Full Version : Wooden 35's ?
Trivia: Which 35mm cameras have wooden bodies ?
(Photogs with wooden heads don't count)
zero image make this one:
Other than the Sico? (Yeah, okay, looking on your website was probably cheating.)
When I worked for a newspaper I had this awful thing I had made up by grafting a broken Konica Auto S2 onto the back of a Crown Graphic, using cardboard, black tape, and various other bits of junk you find around the darkrooms of old cheap newspapers. It looked terrible, and it barely stayed in one piece, but it didn't have to; its job was to sit on a counter and make copy negatives of the wedding pictures people would bring in, so we could give them back the picture right away and still have something to run in the paper. Since a Crown Graphic body is made of wood, and the thing used 35mm film, I guess you could say it was a 35mm wood-bodied camera!... if you didn't mind stretching the definition a bit.
DISCLAIMER: Of course the picture is not mine! :rolleyes:
I am not sure how many there are,
but I do think it's an interesting subject.
One of my favorites is the Ansco Memo, a half frame first marketed in 1927.
