George Lucas’ machine included film magazines, a dolly and a lens.

The camera that lensed the Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope sold for a record $625,000 at an auction held Saturday.

Hello, I've always loved everything relating to photography. I got my first real 35MM camera when I was in Jr High and have never looked back. I love all things relating to photography - photography and playing with Photoshop!
