Don't Try This at Home, Kids
« on: January 19, 2018, 06:29:39 pm »

As I often remind my grandchildren, I was born in the first half of the last century.  So I can't help but think of modern cameras as optical-mechanical devices even though I know they're really computers with lenses.

Many years ago, I disassembled my father's pre-war Contax II rangerfinder in an attempt (partially successful) to get the focusing mechanism to move more freely.  Also, to be honest, I wanted to know what the guts of a camera looked like.

Apparently, the urge to see what's inside persists in a younger generation of photographers.

There must be a way to design these cameras much better...

Cheers,
