  1. Modern Photography, in their August 1952 issue, had an article on this innovative camera. Unfortunately the company ceased operations shortly thereafter. From McKeown's:

  10. Another great look back. The Rex Reflex was interesting. Still a few years before the Mamiyaflex. Thanks for sharing.
     
  11. Marc, thanks again for posting these. Please keep them coming!

    The Rex was a nice try, and those Angenieux optics must have been something. Keppler's "rather slow-moving field of camera design" was about to change. Nikkor lenses were already advertised.

    The Beken article is a gem for those of us who like photographing boats and seascapes. It is all LF, of course, he declares a preference for glass plates, but just look at that 1894 picture. And to think that he released the shutter by biting!
