That is quite a collection of glass. would be impossible to track anything in that configuration. COULD GET sequential shots though.

Nice display of glass, but more than I could ever carry or afford.

That should be one heck of a tripod!!! That's 15lbs worth of bodies alone, forget the glass. The lens on the right is one of the old manual focus models - a 50-300? Doesn't look like a 200-600.

Actually, they all look like they're manual focus models... aren't those all F4's with MF-23's? The hair style also makes this look like the 80's...

The lens on the right looks like the single ring AIS 200-400mm f4. All the 50-300mm lenses are two ring.

I'm sure the bodies are F4's with MF-23 backs. They look exactly like mine. That really is quite a setup. I'd love to know what he was shooting, maybe a rocket launch.

We have this shot somewhere in our archives. We always wanted to see the actual tripod head setup that he built to hold those cameras.

But THIS should be our guy.

as all lenses are pointed in the same direction and some of them are manual (means pre-focused?) , and i see two cords on the right must be remote release cables - it very possible the guys is trying to get simultanious picture of something at different focal legnthes. maybe a suttle lanch or something like that?


Best regards,
Vlad

I believe he was at an airshow. Regardless, unless he tuned the alignment of all cameras to a common point, he will have parallax issues getting identical or close framing.

I've seen a duplex version at an airshow before, but never five.

He can't be very comfortable with about 40 pounds worth of lens and camera over his right shoulder, about 15 pounds hanging from his left shoulder and at least that much though likely much more hanging from his right shoulder. Some of those vest pockets look full too.

Best Regards,
Marty

It is funny ! ON the other hand could it be a sales rep displaying five different lenses so that potential buyers could see the difference . It appears there are papers or tags that might have a description of the products . I may be stating the obvious and embarrassing myself OH WELL !

What bodies are they, they appear somewhat strange. They look identical, but they don't appear to have a LCD on the back for image display. Are they film?

I think they are F4's with the mF-23 data back. If you look closely, all the lenses are MF, and I think this image dates from the 1990's.
