I wasn't sure where to post this - I decided this was the most appropriate place.
Dean Jones, the man behind the Razzle 4X5 cameras, plus many other panoramic and other hand made cameras passed away from cancer this morning.
I knew Dean for over 15 years - his enthusiasm for photography was infectuous. He loved to play. He loved to find a old lens and shoot a paper negative to see what result the lens would give. He would take something he found - say a right angle viewfinder from a microscope, and make himself a 5X4 SLR...just because he could.
