    Just leave it to Chris to come up with an enlightening reply...

    Dave, congrats. I'm envious. That Pressman looks pretty clean. Hope everything works. I've been looking for an affordable 4x5 kit, and that camera is on my list.

    I've always thought Weegee used a black Anniversary Graphic.
    Have I been mistaken? JD

    Camera came, now I need------

    The camera arrived today & it's even better looking than the pictures! Lens is clear, shutter seems fine, everything works as it should. NOW - What do I look for in a flash? The lens has the bi-pin connection, and the rangefinder has a metal plate that extends a bit beyond the rangefinder body. I assume this is where a flash would mount? Would a Graflite flash mount there? I'm thinking a flash using bulbs would be the way to go.
