Fairchild F-296 Oscillograph Camera Polaroid Land Camera Model 95- 1958 – Local College Find! We are offering this RARE FIND of photographic history! This camera was made for a specific purpose for Industry and for Academia. See below for historic information. Many items were auctioned off from the late 1800’s through the middle of the 20th century. This camera was one of the ultra rare and interesting items that we could get our hands on! The camera is in Very Good condition, having been stored for decades in it’s own case in a large climate controlled storage room at the college. It is in Used condition and has one main issue and that is the shutter release wire is frayed and probably broken. It is not currently working. This item was used in a classroom setting, so we don’t know how much use that it actually got. As you can see by the photos, the storage box is in very good condition. The Fairchild F-296 Oscillograph Camera was based on a Polaroid Land Camera Model 95 of 1957. Introduced in 1958, the Fairchild F-296 allowed you to take photographs of cathode-ray tube oscillograph displays. To ensure rigidity, the bellows of the Polaroid camera were surrounded by a protective frame, which fit onto a lens cone that covered the display. The camera took type 40-Series Land Picture Rollfilm (3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″). The camera was fitted with a specially designed Wollensak Oscillo-Anastigmat 75mm f/1.9 set in a Wollensak Alphax shutter. The lens was computed to take images of a convex oscilloscope and render them correctly on a flat film plane. ++++++++++++++++ UPDATED NOTE: Our sick kitty, Mystic, lost her battle to FIV on 02/13/18. It was a long struggle in many ways but she is now free of suffering and we are overwhelming sad to lose her! See our photo for a picture of her – Mystic was much loved and we took great care of her at great cost to us, both physically and financially. But it was worth every bit of it to have the time with her. THAT was in February, on April 20th, we lost our eldest cat, Artemis to advanced aging. We currently have 1 cat left and that is our boy, Oliver, who misses his sisters just as much as we do! Note: All items come from a Smoke FREE home but, we do have cats! We try to keep them away from our inventory items, but cat hairs might just sneak in! We are pickers and attend auctions, estate sales & tag sales looking for just the right pieces that we know others will love and cherish just as much as we do. We look for unusual items, and items that we are attracted to. We are both from the “Baby Boomer” era, and this is our retirement business. We are meticulous about the research that we do so as not to over or under charge according to the value of our pieces. We especially look for vintage boxes, wooden, lacquered or other materials. Also we look for mid century radios, cameras, unusual furniture, collectibles and jewelry. We may have it in our inventory and just haven’t posted it yet. If it’s not in our inventory, we will look for that item while on our picking adventures! We LOVE what we do!!! We are currently running this business while still working other jobs.
