Don't forget, quite a few of us are venerable photographers.

Are venerable and antique synonymous?

This strip ran in the Denver Post's June 24 edition, Is cartoonist Mike Peters a UHH Forum member? Note that Mother Goose's camera is in her attic. Sob.

I saw that cartoon too, that cartoon said volumes about what people known about film camera today.

By definition, venerable implies being beloved {read or reread the first post in this thread}

I have a Super, was my first 4x5, used it a lot until I bought a Wisner Technical. I have no idea what it's worth, will probably donate it to the local community college.


the Wisner was built by Paul Wisner, a great large format photographer. it is worth in the area of $750.00 - $1,000.00.

Digital cameras all have electronic sensors, but all are analog. The camera is called "digital" because the analog sensor data is digitized and the output is therefore digital.

What? Are you still stalking me? Please stop.

I think I'd have to go with my Hassy El, C, and SWC.

I think "venerable" is pushing it a bit. It's an old camera that sold well in its day, but there are better cameras available now. Is a 1950 Chevy venerable? I wouldn't venerate it. It's like the tendency to call any old car a classic.

Look at the article linked below, and you'll see how silly those terms are. I'm sure there are arguments among those car owners about which term to use. "That's not a classic! It's an antique!" I think "old car" is sufficient.
It's sort of like posting in the wrong section here.

The theme WAS "venerable" but SEVEN YEARS later its now just "dead, rotten, and stinking".

I certainly didnโ€™t initiate a recall on this old post from 2017. Why itโ€™s showing up again is baffling to me. I got all the answers I needed from the first time around. Let it rest.
