In Search of Reach: Tele Converters

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by jdm_von_weinberg, Mar 23, 2016.

  1. An addition to the post, will both re-animate this post and provide a tiny bit more background for the early days.

    First, the original article had a pdf from Modern Photography 1959-11
    these are jpgs of that article and some additional bits:

  2. Also, here is a query from a letters column in the same issue, which was not presented before:

  4. Anything on early teleconverters or use of negative lenses to increase focal length is always interesting. Thanks for sharing.
