Yes I recall the Robin. My slides were square format. Instatech Dental Camera.
It used flash cubes! Even better, one did not look through the viewfinder. The darn thing used a series of frames and close up lenses which mounted on the camera. They were from 2 inch (two teeth) to two feet (jaw structure). Darn thing had great depth of field but had a lot of dark backgrounds. All my shots in the Audubon Guide were taken with that little plastic gem.

Remember the NAMA Round Robin?

Seeing your pics reminds me of the old NAMA Round Robin days. People nowadays wouldn’t believe that we had an organization that mailed a carousel of slides from person to person and that it took a whole year to go around the loop!. I remember that the shipping carton would get destroyed and have to be replaced several times during the journey of that carousel of slides! I was the organizer for awhile; and the last box would come in the mail covered with several types of tape. Inside, was the prize. I got to see all those new slides that had accumulated over a year’s time.

I think that it was you who had large format slides in square frames. Am I right about that?
