Written by:  K. Ramachandra Babu, ISC, India Date: 02.09.2015
Sometime back I met the maker of India's First 65mm Camera, Cinematographer T. V. Somasundaram who provided me some photographs of the 65mm camera which will be of historical importance for in70mm.com.

I have requested Mr. Somasundaram to give me a few pieces of the 65mm negative or the 70mm Print. In case I receive it I will send it to you. I am happy to know that you are keeping the large format alive by your hard work and love for the format.
