Some images from "Camera in New Zealand" 1967          

These are some selected images ( about 10 %) from a 234 page book entitled "Camera in New Zealand", printed in 1967.
I bought it 2nd-hand a few days ago, and it is in fine condition
The format is 9(w) x 11(h) inches, or 22 x 28.5 cm.
I think it is fascinating to look at the range of topics, techniques, media, and cameras compared with now
in 2012.

All of these were copied using a hand-held (sometimes one hand only with the other holding pages more-or-less flat)
Olympus E-3 dslr with a DZ 14 ~ 54 lens. Photos taken in bright winter sunlight.
All images were cropped, re-sized, colour and lighting adjusted to accord as well as possible with the printed image,
usually but not always sharpened, and the file size reduced from sometimes as much as 750kb to a
maximum of around 300kb, usually closer to 220 kb; using FastStone Image viewer.
