Photohistorisch Tijdschrift & No. 4 Bullet Special Model '98

This week issue # 3 of the PHT (Photohistorisch Tijdschrift), the Dutch photographica collectors magazine, dropped on the door mat. In it a number of interesting stories about Goerz AG, Pierre Angenieux, AGFA and Zeiss Ikon films. Also in it my Scheimpflug article, part 1. For the first time the magazine printed a QR code. When you scan it with a smart phone or webcam, and if you have a QR code reader installed, it takes you to Flickr, where I have gathered more than 40 photographs about Scheimpflug. The idea is that if you are reading the article and want to find out more, you simple can scan the code and get additional information. It works with a computer with webcam, but QR codes are used primarily with smart phones. I wonder how many view I get on Flickr.

This week I changed the home page of my website so that it is not so static. I used to tell about the importance of George Eastman and what you could find on my site, but that hardly changes, so I dumped it all and replaced it with a video and a few words on the newest addition to the site. In this case the Scheimpflug File.
I also added a new camera video to the site. It's about the No. 4 Bullet Special, Model '98. I have had that camera for many years, but for some reason I never had made a video of it.
Until now all the video's are uploaded to my provider, but with the Bullet I tried YouTube. It works well, but I haven't found how I can run the video in a loop, so that the camera seems to turn round and round without ever stopping. I will have to experiment a bit more before I am satisfied, but here it is. You can find the additional text on my site.
Update: I found out how to let it run in a loop. Result below:
