The September 2022 Snap Shots includes the 2022-2023 kick-off Sunday, September 11, Zoom meeting with Dr. Lee McIntyre’s presentation on the early women photographers of New England. Other items include: comments about June’s presentation on the Exakta, the Univex use of proprietary film, and clarifying the identification of a C. H. Cornell F24 camera/calculator used in aerial photography. Camera items include the Utility Falcon Model F; the sale of Oscar Barnak’s personal Leica prototype for $14.4 million; and a giant wet plate camera together with a darkroom bus. Also: a ruling on the Zealy daguerreotypes as to ownership and “negligent infliction of emotional distress”; and finally, preparations for celebrating PHSNE’s 50th Anniversary in 2023.
