    I'm only slightly familiar with the Speed Graphic. I assume, given its name, that it is designed for "fast action". Do you think it could catch flying dinner plates?

    Likely David Burnett, esp if had some Sonys around his neck. Believe he also uses an Aero Liberator as well as the SG.

    Yes, it's good for hand-held action shots. But it's very versatile; you could also put it on a tripod and do long-exposure still-lifes of, say, ketchup dripping down a wall...

    IF you have your 4X5 Speed set for YOU

    You too can try to shoot as good as WeeGee

    No fucus, usually preset 10 feet, always a flashbulb day or night

    Use the wire finder, shoot faster than DIGI

    Cigar not optional

    Fast as Hell processing, no touch up

    Must be in the news ASAP

    This used most WeeGee tips

    There's going to be plenty of flash powder on the 4th. I hear firecrackers every night, but have buzzed down the yard, and will spray water into my gutters and onto the trees on the afternoon of the 4th. Wash DC will have to fend for itself. We've already had about sixteen grass fires in this area in the past ten days, with one very expensive home half destroyed - all thought to be human caused, with two arson arrests so far. But I don't expect it to be anywhere near as wild as last summer, when lots of peopled were frustrated over covid issues and getting itchy to let off steam. It sounded and looked like a world war the entire week of the Fourth. Where the heck did all those furloughed people get the money for that amount of fireworks? The illegal neighborhood pyro shows were bigger than the various official city ones launched over the Bay.

    View Camera at Jan 6 hearing

    Hey-Anyone else notice the view camera used by a photographer during the break just now? You could see him inserting a 4X5 holder. Linhof possibly? I guess film is making a comeback!!

    Burnett says there was 3 film photographers incl. him, Frank Thorp, and Louis Palu. There's so much media it's hard to find any published images from these guys on the major news outlets, so I wish Burnett would post more of them on his Instagram. I realize its likely because he's selling the images to agencies or working for an outlet to use them exclusively.

    However Thorp has some posted here:

    These look like they came from another era. I'd love to see them alongside black and white versions of photographs made with digital cameras at the same sessions.

    When I was in college in the 40's I carried a Speed essentially all the time. Most nights I had IR flashbulbs and film as often as I could afford them. Talk about shooting in the dark - nothing like it. Other than that it was good old reliable Super XX and #5's.
