The Camera Eye

Twin lens reflex.  The top lens serves as the photographer’s viewing eye while the bottom lens is the camera’s taking eye.

  3. My very first camera–given to my be my father when I was five–looked like that. It had a leather case, and one peered down into it to take the photo.

  6. Very cool indeed! Is that a hot shoe on the side?

    • No hot shoe. Flash requires a cable to the socket in the upper right hand corner of the lens board.
