    Weekend work: I made pictures to visualize the different revisions of construction of the CURTA Type I calculator (4 diefferent Curtas, nine views). I used my GF1 with the Retro Lumax 1:3.5/35 - an English Lens from around the same time period as the Curtas.

    Curta Type 1 - comparison - Vergleich - comparaison (1949 1952 1955 1968)

    You can selcect the Curta by Year (1949 • 1952 • 1955 • 1968) and nine different views by using the arrows (< > top right)

    Very cool subject. Kinda looks like a cross between a camera lens (wish my calculator had knurling), a coffee grinder, an abacus, and a hand grenade (what does happen when you pull the pin?)

    Shots came out nicely, too.

    hold on a minute..... those things are calculators? they look like pepper grinders or a handheld enigma machine lol

    very nice shots. though the close ups on the site you linked have a little flare. the shot of the 4 curtas above has a better contrast, probably because you darkened the background slightly.
