|360° view of Bencini Comet S, 127 roll film camera, c1950, see below for link to main page|
| Bencini Comet,
photographed for a 360° view consisting of 36 images at 10°.
The Bencini Comet is pretty basic, but the emphasis is pretty, it's Italian after all. As the image rotates it will reveal the twin red windows, necessary as the camera takes portrait format images, rather than square. Also visible is the sole shutter control that lifts to control instant or B settings. The heavy fluting around the lens barrel looks as though it should do something, but it's purely decorative.
Start the image spinning by putting your cursor over the "Spin" side of the image, you can pause the animation in any position by touching the "Pause" side.
Stuck at home and looking for a long read?
|Of Our Own Device is a spy tale interwoven amongst true events culminating with the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. Meticlously researched and utterly true to life, the book is very particular with its cadence. It is both spy and romance, but mostly a study of deceit, internationally, between friends, lovers and ourselves.|
