    But your later work with the hangar-cam would be boring...

    I have actually printed negatives from the 'Boston Camera'. A couple of images were sent to us when I was at Kodak. We had no information about the camera but did some speculating... it seems that we weren't too far off.
    The contact prints were sharp, to be sure, but I doubt that the few negs we saw had the 'golf-ball' resolution mentioned in the article. They were extremely impressive; panoramic oblique aerial views that must have had the horizon 100 miles away, perhaps, still clear. Especially impressive when we found out, later, that they dated from 1956.

    I guess mine is pretty big, though I have never shot any film with it - perhaps one day...?
    And technically it is "non-stationary" since it is the bathroom of my "mobile" home. The lens has a F/L of 54", mounted in a sheet of plywood covering the window.

    For some reason it always irks me that they call it "The Great Picture" when they only have a negative.
