    B&J Orbitar Camera

    Good day to all, I was lucky enough to have one of these come across my path. It has a 65 f/8 Super Angulon lens and takes 4x5 film. I cannot seem to find much information on this and was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on the camera and its history or direct me to a spot on the web where I couls find out more on this. Thanks for you time.

    God Bless,
    David

    Thanks Ian for this. The sadly, the camera I have in hand isn't the Orbit. The one I have is similar to a Bill Brandt box camera with helicoil focusing, not bellows.

    God Bless,
