    What camera is this?

    In this this video beginning at timecode 6:37 Michael von Graffenfried is making pictures of a demonstration. What is the camera he is using there?

    Could never get a good look,but it looks like a 35mm,or maybe 120. Hes made some very large prints with it ,must be a panoramic format.Interesting clip.Thanks for sharing.

    The way he's winding it suggests a 120.

    Hasselblad X-pan. The contact sheet they show is 35mm, and it looks like X-pan format. Medium format cameras that shoot that aspect ratio are much larger and bulkier.

    In the beginning he is using some kind of swing-lens camera (Widelux, Noblex etc). A Widelux for instance is wound with a knob so it may look like a 120 but it is usually a 135 (they exist in both 135 and 120 but the 135 i way more common).
    The camera he is using at 6:40 and onwards is most likely a Xpan with a 30mm lens. The hood and the viewfinder looks definitely the part.

    I may be wrong but my money is on an X-pan with 30mm lens.

    Xpan negs (24x65mm) are on 35mm film, as is plainly visible from the contact sheets shown, but are larger than standard 35mm negs (24x36mm), so the quality is somewhere between 35mm and medium format.

    The camera he's using at the beginning looks like a Widelux. That's different from the camera he's using around 6:37, which is the subject of the original question.
