    This appears to be a camera that would work. It does not have many of the bells and whistles that a Wisner or even an older Deardorf would have. It is not a triple extension camera in the usual definition, in that the front bed apparently does not expand or retract in the same manner as the aforementioned designs. This requires that the front bed drops when using short focal length lenses. The bellows extension is about the same as the Deardorf and would handle lenses of moderately long focal length. The bed design should be fairly rigid, at least its design would be supportive of rigidity. The weight at 8.7 lbs would be welcome when carrying the camera and supporting items for any distance.

    Looks to be as close as you can get to a new Master view.

    It does look a lot like a new Master View might.

    I didn't see a price. Did I not look hard enough?
