Article about Domirex, page 1
This is an article from approx. 1963 by Norman Rothschild discussing the Konica Domirex camera, which was prototyped but never put into production. The camera was a 35mm SLR, but used an unusual mirror arrangement to eliminate the need for the mirror to flip up out of the way prior to exposure. It's still an "SLR", although it looks more like a rangefinder camera. The reason is that a "single lens reflex" camera, by definition, uses a mirror to reflect light that's passed through the single lens into the viewfinder. The advantage of this is that the user sees exactly what the camera is "seeing". Rangefinder and viewfinder cameras use an optical system that's parallel to, but separate from the lens. The problem with this (there are advantages, too) is that when you swap out different focal length lenses, the viewfinder doesn't show the change in the angle of view. Various auxiliary viewfinders, or adjustable framing brightlines within the camera's viewfinder, or "auto-up" optical attachments have been used with RF and VF cameras over the years, to solve this problem. Another problem with viewfinder cameras is parallax error, which occurs increasingly with closer and closer focusing situations because the user and the camera are viewing the subject on slightly different optical axes. Twin lens cameras solve some of the problems by having two lenses: one to take the image, the other for the photographer to view through. Of course, this means buying and carrying around twice the optics. Plate film cameras solve the problem by allowing direct viewing of the image, through the taking lens, displayed upside down and reversed on a ground glass on the back of the camera, prior to inserting the film pack. This means working more slowly putting the film in place manually, and often having to view the image under a dark cloth, nearly always with the camera securely mounted on a tripod. While all of these are workable and sometimes even preferable, all of the methods have their drawbacks. So, the single lens reflex or SLR camera allows you to view right through the taking lens, so you always see "what the camera sees". By using a pentaprism (penta-mirror in some cases) above the mirror, the image is right side up and not reversed, too! Granted, this adds a lot of mechanism to the camera, more moving parts that have to get out of the way during exposure and then return quickly to position so that the photographer can see to take the next image. The Domirex explores using an array of tiny mirrors that are fixed but combine to reflect part of the light passing through the camera, redirecting an image to the viewfinder through a fairly traditional pentaprism. By definition it's still an SLR.... But without the usual moving mirror parts. This serves several purposes. First, it eliminates momentary blackout of the viewfinder during exposure and , considerably reduces the number of moving parts in the camera. It also eliminates camera shake from the mirror movement (sometimes called "mirror slap", for which some cameras offer a mirror lockup or MLU feature). It also makes the camera quieter in operation. Yet it still allows for lens changes and automatically adapts to the use of different focal lengths by allowing viewing through the taking lens. The Domirex was an interesting early attempt to address several common SLR problems that eventually led to some pellicle mirror design SLRs produced by Canon and others, which also made possible ultra high speed frame rate cameras.Nikon Nikkormat FTn 35mm SLR Camera
This is the only FTn (as opposed to FT2) I have ever come across with plastic winder tip and self-timer lever (until I saw another today on Nikon Porn...). This was my first "quality" SLR, bought secondhand from a pro in Peckham, South London, for ?75 (body only) in the late 1970's. The meter cells packed up 2 years later and I picked up my F2 Photomic at the camera shop performing the repairs, which weren't complete by my 3rd visit (that's what I call smart business!). To their credit, they did give me two spare meter cells with the (finally) repaired camera.
Are you ready to use the new breed of digital SLR to go beyond point-and-click snapshooting and explore what it has to offer the world of photography? If you have already conquered most of a digital camera's basic capabilities and now wonder what to do with the enhanced features found in digital SLR cameras, this is a dream guide to pixel proficiency. Mastering Digital SLR Photography, Second Edition includes extensive updates that cover the vast improvements in technology in the last 2-3 years, including new camera models, raised bar on resolution, vibration reduction, new kinds of lenses, and more. It goes beyond the standard coverage offered in most general camera books, covering features and techniques specific to digital SLR photography. From initial discussions on hardware selection to professional-level tips and techniques for sports and action shots, this is the comprehensive guide that any photographer needs for refining their digital SLR skills.Similar posts:
