Graflex.Org Home Graflex Announces Pocket Graphic

First APS Press Camera

(Rochester, NY; 4/1/98)

Graflex today announced the Graflex Pocket Graphic, the first APS format Press camera.  Designed to meet the needs of today's fast-moving press photographer, the Pocket Graphic is the world's smallest Press camera at 3.6" x 3.6" x 4.1" when opened, and only 1.2" deep when closed.

In announcing the move away from 4x5" sheet film, Graflex spokesperson April Dupre said, "The Pocket Graphic is the latest in the Graflex line of modern-film cameras.  We believe that APS film will soon take the place of Kodak Pack Film, or maybe vice versa." (Kodak discontinued film packs when the last two employees making them retired.)

 Besides its compact size, the Pocket Graphic offers all of the advantages photographers have come to expect with the APS film system.

Graflex would not comment on whether the Pocket Graphic would be compatible with the previously-announced Grafocus Back.
