Makes Big Candid Camera (Jun, 1939)

Makes Big Candid Camera
USING the back of an old view camera, the front of an old reflex camera, the finder from a Speed Graphic and the range finder from a Leica, Fred R. Jolly, of Peoria, Ill., has assembled what is believed to be the largest candid camera in existence, taking an 8×10 negative. The novel camera is equipped with a synchronized flash and the synchronizer is used to trip the shutter at all times, whether the flash is used or not.

    You’d hardly notice him there taking those candid shots . . .

    I used to shoot with a 4×5 Speed Graphic. I can’t imagine hand holding an 8×10 camera back.
