Word of the day: Velox

[“From Dingburg to Palookaville,” Zippy, February 3, 2014.]

From Photographic Memorabilia:

Kodak VELOX paper was a very slow printing paper, producing a blue-black image, suitable for contact printing only, where the negative is placed in contact with the paper to produce a print of the same size. Kodak discontinued the manufacture of Velox paper in 1968.
The Oxford English Dictionary (which includes proprietary names) has no entry for Velox.

Oh, Veloxes... and PMTs. The romance of the stat camera. One more for the Museum of Forgotten Art Supplies.

Let’s call that the acronym of the day. Stat camera is new to me too.
