One of the best examples of large format SLR was the Graflex which was produced by Folmer and Schwing and later became Graflex, This company was best known for the Speed Graphic line of " hand and stand" cameras familiar to many of us here. The Graflex operTed as a true single lens reflex with focal plane shutter. These came in 3 1/4x4 1/4, 4x5 and 5x7" formats. The RB Series had revolving backs. All were used waist level with a dark " boot" which was edged with "fur" for light sealing and photographer comfort. The RB Series D and the RB Super D were last and best of the type last produced about 1954. The Super D was semi automatic having a coupled diaghragm which would reset the preset aperture after rewiding the shutter. I've had the pleasure of owning and using one of the Series D graflexes handheld taking street shots in the early '80's. Lovely instruments!

The elimination of the mirror has introduced a new concept into the interchangeable lens digital camera market - compactness (kind of like what happened when Oscar Barnack created the Leica).
