Well...
It took almost a year to be restored. But it's amazing, worth the wait. Patrick Alt (and Tracy) did an incredible job. Folmer & Schwing like new.

Now I need to find a subject quick !

Looks beautiful. The F&S cameras always look elegant.

What a gorgeous camera. Looks like a Deadorff Packard shutter box on the front. What kind of lens is that?

Yes it is on a reducing board... :-)
Lens is a Ross, London Aero 20 inches f;6

I have another one with Packard 6 but not adjusted yet for a Xenar 420 f;4,5.

Guillaume, the camera is really great looking. Congrat's on getting into ULF. I love my 11x14 and I'm sure you will to.
Great restoration job.

Guillaume, Thanks for the mention, Patrick did 99.9% of the work, I just did the new focusing shafts and gears.
Do you have a "before" picture to post? It is hard to believe it is the same camera, Patrick really brought it back to life.
I hope you make some beautiful work with the camera soon.

Guillaume, congrats! The camera is beautiful but I know the photos will be even more so! I had one just like this. I think about 7 or 8 11X14's ago. The Deardorff turned out to be the keeper even though it is VERY heavy.

Very nice. It looks like your camera is a lot sturdier than my 11x14 New Improved Empire State View Camera. What is the maximum bellows extension on your rig? Jon
