    F W Deckal

    October 18, 2011 by Millsge

    I have just posted two photos of a camera whose only indication of a brand are "F. Deckel," "Semi-Sport." The lens is a Xenar f:3.5 F=7.5cm Schneider-Kreuznach. I cannot find any information other than the post in "Camerapedia" that says that F. Deckel was a maker of machined parts - including a leaf shutter for camera makers.

The camera takes 120 film and has rather advanced features regarding the loading and advance of the film. I am posting a picture here as well in the hope that someone might recognize the camera. My son believes that the camera may…

    Recuerdo hace mucho tiempo atras mi primer contacto fotografico fue en un estudio fotografico.

    Most people haven't heard of World Photography Day. For photography lovers, it's just a day to come together and celebrate the awesome hobby of photography. World Photography Day has been celebrated pretty steadily for the past twenty years. The date of August 19th is chosen because that was the day the newly-invented Daguerrotype was announced to the public by the French government, in 1839. The year 1839 is unofficially the year that photography was invented.

    So, for World Photography Day, throw a party and celebrate your skills! It only comes once a year!
