Graflex Super D: Shooting Portraits

The Super D looks like a Franken-Cam but it's one of the most unique shooting experiences and by far the most enjoyable 4x5 camera for shooting portraits that I have come across. The moving cloth shutter provides a unique look as it  moves vertically, exposing the film. Finding a working model can be a challenge (I had to rebuild mine) but I find the analog images it makes to be quite special in a world of digital sameness.
