Trying to manage the complexities of a view camera in
ideal conditions is difficult enough. Add wind to the mix and it seems
as though one never has enough hands between keeping the focusing cloth
on the camera,
making it dark enough to see the ground glass, let alone focusing.
Working in windy conditions is much easier with the BLACKJACKET™.
The sturdy elastic collar keeps the dark cloth from blowing away while
sleeves ensure a dark environment
for focusing. When inserted in the sleeves, the photographer's arms provide
the additional benefit of a rigid framework that keeps the fabric from
obscuring the ground glass.
