I love it! Great shallow DOF and the lighting is heavenly. I can see this having lots of uses in stock photography.

Very nice DOF here, and the white background makes it very useable in stock photography.

Nice color and clarity on the lens. It feels like it should be a portrait shot though.

Very crisp, and what an incredible object! I could easily see this alongside text in a book or in a newspaper article. Awesome!

One of the relatively few shots in this challenge I could really picture being in a stock photography catalog! Very nicely done -- the sharpness at the front of the camera is perfect.

Wish you had flipped this to the portrait position so the face of the camera could be read. Also would have preferred who camer in focus on this shot. Would be a 10 with these 2 changes. The rest of the photo is good.

I don't think I ever tire of seeing old cameras -- especially bellows models. Since all of the writing on the camera goes the same way, I'd like to see the camera standing up rather than laying down. The viewfinder would be the correct way then, too. I would try to put the entire front lens in focus by giving just a slight bit more DOF. It's a very nice image and could be used to illustrate many things in the stock photography world.

Because of the lettering, it should stand up the other way. People like to look at words right side up.

The choice of subject is very interesting and the focusing adds a lot to the shot. I do wish the lighting were better as the odd shadows take away from the picture. 10! - xertion

Vertical may have worked better.Or showing the whole camera with the viewfinder flipped up.

Very cool camera! Where on earth did you find it????
