    Or at least it feels that way. My two new babies arrived yesterday.
    An almost "like new" Bergheil 9X12. I really would not guess it is 75 years old, it looks and works great.
    A Superb with the Skopar lens also in great conditon though the finder is a bit dim.
    So now its about time to run some film through these beauties. Gotta get me some holders for the Bergheil.
    Kind regards

    Did you get extra holders for you Bergheil? Or was it only the sheaths.
    kind regards

    No panoramic work. Thats just not my cup of tea. Im still waiting for the extra holders I ordered from "Old Cameras" start December :sad: so progress is a bit slow. A side effect is Im now thinking about a real 4X5" field camera, sigh :smile:
    Kind regards
