Re: Collapsing Building

This discussion is interesting, but nothing new to anyone who used to use a view camera.

For you youngsters, view cameras were generally 4x5" sheet film cameras that allowed shifting and tilting of the front lens board (so thus the lens) and sometimes the back too.  The photographer has many axes of control with the best of them, including rising fronts and various rotations.  Of course, this style of photography is not for folks in a hurry!

Linhof and Horseman were major manufacturers.  And these things are still being made, because they offer unique advantages for certain kinds of studio and technical photography.  You can get digital backs too, if you can afford them!
