Did you know?

Produced around 1910, this view camera is very similar to the machines used to take the earliest photographs and resembles those still used today for large-format film photography.


Kent Krugh uses x-ray technology to allow us to see inside the Gundlach Korona. In a view camera, the lens forms an inverted image on a ground glass focusing screen, which is replaced with a sheet of film to take the picture. A feature of the apparatus emphasized in this view is the bellows, which expands or contracts as the distance between the lens and film holder is altered, which changes focus, depth of field, and perspective.
