    They are quite different cameras, the Super is very much better in terms of usability and movements but has no focal plane shutter.

    Why not a Crown Graphic ?

    Thanks for your attention.
    Yes, I know about differences. Just interesting in different qualities - Super with movements and Speed with focal plane shutter for barrel lenses. Regarding the Crown - it is not metal and I am worried about it's robust and quality after so many years. But it is looking promising as well cause light weight.

    And yes, finally, after thinking i should change the thread title to: Searching Grafles Press Camera in good working condition with lens. And waiting for the one world will send me.
