A tribute to film

NOTE: The timeline is NOT accurate by any means. It is NOT meant to be a useful guide of any kind; it's just a design. I am not a photography historian. I just arranged the cameras by what I thought would've been a logical progression. Below are the actual dates for all the cameras beginning from the left:

  • Empire State View folding field camera. c1895.

  • Ensign Cadet. 1927 -1931.

  • Six-16 Brownie Junior. 1934 - 1942.

  • Duaflex II. 1950 - 1954.

  • Jiffy Kodak Six-16. 1933 - 1937.

  • Kodak Jr. Six-16 Series II. 1937 - 1940.

  • Agfa Ansco Super Regent. 1954 - 1960.

  • Argus C2. 1938 - 1966.

  • Pony IV. 1957 - 1961.

  • Star-Lite. c1962.

  • Sears KSX Super. c1981.



Materials and Methods
Stock photos for all the cameras and source of all the information about the camera's above is from Sheila Lovett (nfocus @ sxc.hu: [link]). Awesome stock photographer, check her out! I used only the photos available to me which did not happen to include many photos of "landmark" cameras so sorry for that.

Made using GIMP.

Additional Comments
Update: Again, this is not meant to be a useful guide of any kind. If you are able to make a more accurate and useful camera timeline, I implore you to do it.

Update II: The stock photographer of the cameras Sheila Lovette saw this deviation and thought it was a cool idea so she is making an ACCURATE version. The ACCURATE version will be on her website: www.retiredcameras.com

It is a nice idea. And it is kinda funny how the seemingly evolution might not be like that really.
