For the photography buffs out there the press photos were taken using a Konica T3 with a Sigma compact zoom lens with a focal length of roughly 39mm to 90mm. This lens gave me the option to get close to the action or I could zoom out for mid range shots. The actual camera and lens I used was worn out by the early '80's after all the dust and banging around it took from the racing photo days. My old Konica has been gone years ago when I moved over to Canon equipment. I borrowed this picture from a listing on ebay so you can see what the camera looked like. During the time of the National photos I worked at a security camera company so I used speciality Ilford film designed for surveillance cameras for the race photos. If I remember correctly the slower film was an unusual speed of 120ASA. I also used Ilford 400ASA from time to time but I quickly learned the grain size was too noticeable for my taste. I am sure the 250 National pictures from Herman in 1977 were examples of the 400ASA film. Film photography may be a dying art but the ability to survive 30+ years and still be usable in a digital world makes you wonder how many digital images may be lost over the next 30 years from crashed hard drives, hardware and software upgrades, corrupt files and just losing track of the images. In case you are wondering I have my images backed up in about 5 different places. Unfortunately I doubt most people would be so diligent.
