This folding camera is considerably larger than the photograph indicates, in fact it's quite huge. This 10" high camera has the 170mm f/7.7 Anastigmat lens fitted in an Ilex shutter, which has seven speeds from 1sec to 1/100sec plus B and T. A focussing scale is fitted on the right-hand side of the base board, and it

has a pivoting brilliant viewfinder with an anti-reflection hood.

I bought this in an antique store in new Jersey, for a very low price since the store owner couldn't figure out how to open the camera. Neither could I, but I finally figured it out, but never found the film to use with it.
