60 Years Ago - May 1954

Marc Bergman , May 09, 2014; 08:28 p.m.

Welcome to May 1954.

I thought we would start with an excerpt from Jacob Deschin's book "35mm Photography". Photography magazine published this excerpt and I think it is a good introduction to this prolific author. You can still find his books on Amazon.com and Ebay. I have his Canon book.

Wonderful Leica marketing:

"captures all that your eye sees - Set the Summaron to f/11 at 11 feet - Everything from 5 1/2 feet to infinity will be in sharp focus"
Leica May 1954
