This 1960-61 Messraster photo of the model Axel feeding a squirrel could not have been made using anything other than the Messraster. The proof is in the plasticity of the squirrel’s tiny eye, which is obviously absolutely precisely focused on. That point stands out like no other in the photo. One can see the roundness of the eyeball and that the eyeball is in front of the rest of the eye socket. Cover that sharpest point in the photo, and the rest of the photo appears flat and two-dimensional.
