“The driver was able to reach up to 142 miles per hour,” says Dewey Keithly to us in an email interview. “We mounted the Fujifilm GFX 100 and the Red Komodo to the front of the fastest camera car in Utah on the salt flats…The in-body image stabilization worked flawlessly on the GFX.” I’m sure that if anyone wanted a really cool COVID 19 pandemic photo project, this would be it. I mean, working with the GFX 100 is great. And Dewey says that it’s flawless. But they all worked with a 1966 Porsche 906 LH and the owner/driver.

This Cool Looking Pistol Is Actually a Working Vintage Camera

The Doryu 2-16 Flash Camera Pistol Subminiature Camera is an incredibly curious piece of vintage photo history.

For our vintage series, I do a lot of hunting for particular cameras. And when I saw this Doryu 2-16, I gasped. One could say that this is the perfect clickbait.

Photographer Dewey Keithly was born and raised in San Diego, California where he learned to love photography at a young age. It started with getting a camera from his Dad, photography courses, and developing (no pun intended) his documentary-style of photography. Documentary work has taken him to Nicaragua, Mexico, Hawaii, The Phillipines, New York, Las Vegas, many of the Southern states, and his hometown, San Diego. These days, he’s the photo director at Silencer Co out in Salt Lake City; a company that makes suppressors for firearms.
