Another type of view camera that may be hard to find these days is a press camera. They are large format cameras designed to meet the needs of press photographers. The most common size film for them is 4x5 inches and they can also use sheet film. They use interchangeable lenses, synchronized flashes and come with optical viewfinders and rangefinders. Some antique models have focal plane shutters. They were commonly used by professional newspaper photographers and some photo journalists during the 1930s to early 1960s and are now popular with hobbyists and students around the world. Some models used two shutters and two flash guns.
A press camera will usually fold up into a strong, compact box which makes for easy carrying. Most press cameras were made of wood or metal and they are generally considered collectors items today. You may be able to find a working one at a garage sale, flea market or an auction and a few companies still make present day models. If press cameras could talk, they would have some amazing, historical tales to tell. Speed Graphic cameras by a US company called Graflex were the most popular make.
