  13. JDM,
    I am enjoying reading some of his earlier writings. I remember his columns that I started reading around 1966 but this stuff is new to me.
  14. Keppler's early book on the Single Lens Reflex is still a classic.
    The later book on Nikon F is nice too.

    Interesting. I read the Nikon link. Very interesting. Thanks.
  16. Thanks Marc, a great accompaniment to my Sunday morning coffee. The background information on Nikon was fascinating, in particular.
  17. Thanks for posting these, Marc. The Nikon piece is very interesting.
  18. I thought that Nikon article would be a good read. Imagine reading it in 1951.
  19. Interesting set of articles. I really appreciate the efforts photographers made to get color images in those days. By the time I started taking photos Kodachrome was ISO 25 rather than 10. I had the convenience of color negative (first Kodacolor-X and later the C41 emulsions). My dad started shooting Kodachrome in 1955 when he bought a Voigtlander Vitessa L. I found the original sale receipt for it. Must have taken a long time to save up since he was working as a linotype operator for the local newspaper. Thanks for sharing.
