    Ah, I see - that's why it has been sitting there for a while, maybe.

    A Variant (doesn't look bad at all, but I think I'll stick to the "real" ones.....
    I happen to own one of those "Variants" and they take exceptional photo's not to mention a lens up to 480mm without extensions.......so there.....grin.

    Good for you!
    I dont question for a moment, that the Variants are quality cameras! They are Gandolfi's, after all...

    BUT - as said before, I like the craftmanship behind the "old" ones - a (used to be) friend of mine had a Variant: that was surprisingly heavy, and frankly, I don't really like the design...

    Apart from this; I have limited funds.. I can't have all.....

    You should be using these cameras, they were not meant to collect dust.

    It's a nice one to add to the collection and as we discussed elsewhere seems rare although in Gandolfi's adverts in the 1920's. You did well.

    Seem to be collecting Hopughton cameras like your collectiong Gandolfi's except there's more variety in terms of type of camera

    So, what, I wonder, is the collective noun for Gandolfis?
    I don't know, I'd be happy with just one (Gandolfi). Over here we call them "the English Deardorff".
