An Agfa Camera


I met this woman and her assistant on The High Road to Taos when I stopped to take a photo of a village church.  Unintimidated by her remarkable equipment, I chatted with her and then proceeded to take pictures with my point and shoot digital camera right alongside of her.  Had to laugh as I thought about the differences between us!

  1. Nice to see people with such tools. I've some older cameras too. And I use all of them too. But I've to admit that I prefer my Canon EOS 405D.

  6. It looks like an old speed graphics camera. They were still using them in photography departments when I first got out of the Army. An excellent film camera but you need a darkroom to really make any sense out of owning one.

  10. I don't know that I've seen a camera like that before now. It's a little "before my time."

  13. Cool Afga! Interesting woman too-I even know how to do photo polymer plates! Nowhere near her league, though...
