The camera that took one of the most famous photos in history

    Newer Older

    This Camera was used by Surfman John T. Daniels of the U.S. Life-Saving Service - (US Coast Guard) to record the first powered flight.

    Strobist: The camera is in a glass box lit by a SB-600 on 1/8 power from directly above. The flash was just pointing straight down at the camera. Triggered by an eBay poverty wizard.

    You can find this camera in the building dedicated to Orville and Wilbur Wright at Carillon Park in Dayton, Ohio.
