The first, or one of the first fisheye ever. It was intended as a full-sky camera. It was meant to produce circular images on glass plates 5×7″(13×18 cm).
I do really prefer to give you links to articles and pictures rather than copy, re-elaborate, or steal other people’s work.
So here are all my sources.
- Marco Cavina article about superwides
- 1924 article by Robin Hill
- Henry Schmidt’s article on Cambridge University Press
Can you help me?
This entry is incomplete. I’m looking for good pictures, both iconic on white background (front, top, side, angled) and “real life” ones. More important I’m looking for correct information supported by facts, proof, articles. I’m also looking for manuals, flyers, catalogs, etc. I can use it as a reference or I can share it here. Credits will be given.
Images and credits
Many of the images I use here are found on the web, on auction sites, etc. I always try to track down the authors, ask permission and give them proper credits. Sometimes It is not possible, due to more than 22 years of research, so, if you recognize your pictures please contact me, I’ll be more than happy to give proper credits or take it down if you prefer.
