ANSCO SPEEDEX 4.5 SPECIAL ( 1940 )

 

Ansco Speedex

The Speedex was made by the merged Agfa/Ansco company in Binghamton, NY. in 1940. It uses 120 film and takes 6×6 photos.
The Speedex B2 has 85mm f/4.5 Agfa Anastigmat lens. The shutter has speeds from 1/2 to 1/250 shutter speeds plus B and T settings. There is no interlock which prevents double exposures. The bellows were not made of leather, so often pinholes have developed in them.
The Speedex B2 Junior was a much simpler camera. It also took 120 film, but the lens only had setting from f/11 to f/22 and the shutter only had two speeds: an “Instant” (presumably around 1/60) and a Time setting.
Another rare model with the same characteristics than the speedex was made by Agfa/Ansco company in Binghamton, NY. and was called Agfa B 2 Commander.

VOIGTLANDER BESSA COMPUR ( 1929 – 1956 )

The Bessa was the first production model of the Bessa line. Produced between 1929-1956 by Voigtländer The Bessa is a medium format folder that uses 120 Film to produce 6×9″ photographs. It’s the best known and the most sold of all the Voigtlander cameras with estimations as high as 575,000 cameras made. It was the first self-erecting camera offered by Voigtländer. The Bessa was produced with four different lens types: Voigtar, Vaskar, Skopar, and the Color Skopar. Also there were three shutter leaf options: Prontor, Compur, Compur Rapid. Identifying which options are present in the camera is usually done by inspecting the inner lens ring, and the outer lens ring, or by year of production.

NIKON F5 ( 1996 )

Nikon F5 was placed on the market October 1996 with the catchword of ” The new standard in professional photography”, at 325,000 yen (consumption tax excluded) for the body. It was the flagship single-lens reflex (SLR) camera marking the fifth of the “single-digit F-series models” developed since the Nikon F was launched in 1959 based on the basic philosophy, to offer more improved systems and basic functions, in addition to a camera robust enough for professional use. It had been eight years after the release of the predecessor Nikon F4 in 1988.
The high-end SLR cameras Nikon F, F2, F3 and F4 known as “single-digit F-series models” were developed based on the basic concept of offering mechanisms and technologies already adopted and proven in consumer cameras in a more sophisticated manner. However, the F5 was developed placing emphasis on professional use as the primary aim, in order to provide a flagship camera for the 21st century. Therefore, the F5 was designed to be a “new dimension” camera with highly flexible specifications by actively incorporating a variety of technological innovations with the capabilities required by professionals to achieve sophisticated image expressions.
The development of the F5 progressed under the slogan of “What to do with a camera to speed every operation as a tool to take photos”, keeping in mind the performance of the then-current competitors’ models. The slogan is the basic concept of F5 leading to the subsequent keyword of “Speed.” The F5 development project was started with the introduction of the F4 to the market, but the element technology survey and development based on the concept started around 1992. In 1993, about one year after the start of survey and development, drawings were drafted and individual elements were trial-manufactured. Three additional years were required to bring the camera nearer to actualization, and the camera was successfully placed on the market in 1996.
