This American made large format field camera was the workhorse of photo journalists of the 1930s and 1940s. They carried these things around and could set them up and take great photos at the drop of a hat. When you actually try it and realize how complicated a process it is, it’s easy to appreciate those photographers of the past.
My copy is in very rough shape and dates back to 1949. The movements are limited but it takes good enough photos, a few of which you can see here.
