Kodak Duaflex IV


Kodak Duaflex IV
Originally uploaded by theshutterbugeye
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Today I am sharing a photo of a Kodak Duaflex IV camera that a friend sent me so that I can shoot real TtV (through the viewvinder) shots. The Kodak Duaflex IV was made between 1947 and 1960. A TtV shot involves me using my DSLR camera and shooting through the lens of the Duaflex. THen you get the frame and any scratches or effects from the duaflex lens. The frame in this photo is just a layer in photoshop.

Before I can use this I need to make a "contraption". The contraption, and that is what it seems to be called, is basically a foam board tube cut to specs to keep light (that causes reflections) out of the path from the dslr lens and the duaflex lens. I will be working on that this weekend.

Well, Have a nice week! This week I will also share some photos I took in Chicago Saturday.

  3. Wow, I can't wait to see the results! My dad has lots of vintage camera equipment. I thought we were going to wind up getting rid of all of it since digital is so prevalent now... but maybe not!
