Professional photographers have to cope with every kind of client and every type of assignment. No two jobs are the same, or even alike. That calls for considerable creative as well as technical adaptability by the photographer. His photographic tool should logically match this flexibility.View More SINAR Information No 15
In this article we are dealing with the simplifications with regard to the actual exposure handling, i.e. with the phase between the completed setting and the «click».

Exposure measurement in the image plane of the camera is by now generally accepted as being superior to the use of external exposure meters – as evidenced by the current trend in camera design.

The question itself is an old one.

Here the large-format view camera has a not undeserved reputation of being too complex in its settings.
Wide-angle effects are not the only means of photographic impact. In fact this gimmick is sometimes becoming a bore. Even converging verticals -however effective they may be on occasion -are not exactly a hallmark of impressive pictorialism. As a result of various technical requirements and restrictions, televison has in this field produced a certain visual style of some impact for a mass medium. But its shooting limitations cannot in the long run make it a model for professional photography. In 1933 I studied at a leading photographic school. The current rage at the time was Oskar Barnack’s Leica idea.View More SINAR Information No 12
‘I love the black cloth’ -a well known photographer recently told us -‘because it hides me from talkative and interfering customers. And if one of them insists on seeing the image on the ground glass, I smoke out the intruder from underneath the cloth by lighting a cigar.’
From every point of view, image observation of every single shot is obviously vital for the photographer.
