Between the 1940s and the 1970s, one of the big cameras used by sports photographers was the Graflex “Big Bertha,” a giant 120 lb camera that shoots 5×7 photos. At least one of these cameras is still seeing action.

Photographers Geoffrey Berliner and Andrew Moore of the Penumbra Foundation took the giant bazooka-style camera out of a playing field this past weekend and photographed a lacrosse game.
