    Lachlan: Just buy it, figure it out and let us know. And tell us how much water of the gods was required to make it work.
    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

    Don't bet on it being quarter plate, I've got a half-plate Lancaster Instantograph and I'm pretty sure they went past full plate.

    I would guess that it a dual bulb diffusion light source - a bulb on each side with maybe an opal glass diffusion plate in front of each, maybe a mirror, to try an eliminate the hotspot a single bulb gives on a large neg... Somebody email the guy for a picture of the inside...

    It says that the lens is 4". So the negative size must be 1/8 plate or smaller. Probably enlarges to a fixed size paper. It's "autofocus" because it's fixed focus. The early Leica enlargers were just long boxes with a negative holder on one end, a paper holder on the other, and a fixed lens between - the light source was whatever you wanted to use (the sun?).
