General Graflex Crown Graphic 23 6x9 Field Camera Information

This is the baby version of the Pacemaker Crown Graphic 4×5 camera. Graflex manufactured this model between 1947 and 1973. The concept is that of a camera that can be used as a view camera, with ground glass, tripod and lens movements, but also as a camera for snapshots in hand held photography. Many other manufacturers have offered such models and probably the most accomplished case would be the Linhof 6×9. They all belong to a time before specialization in which a professional camera should do everything. The idea that with this camera, “I can take any job,” must have been attractive to photographers of that era.

The compromises for such flexibility are not trivial. In the end, whatever the type of photography, we always have the feeling that we are carrying useless things and regretting what could be better specifically in what we need at the moment. For example, it has front raise, moves lensboard sideways and it can also be tilted backwards, but the film is fixed and does not even rotate to portrait or landscape. Another case is the use of different lenses. It is possible to mount different lenses, however, the rangefinder does not have the feature of Linhofs to accommodate different focal lengths. It would be necessary to change  the cam, which has the correct curvature for each case. It is the profile of this blade that communicates to the rangefinder the position of the lens and allows it to evaluate the focus by matching two images created by telemetry (those are the two round windows on the left side of the camera in the photo above).
