    Only the Pacemaker Speed & Crown Graphics (of all the 5x4models) have the release on the body, it was dropped again in the Super Graphics.

    I French polished my pre-Anniversary Speed Graphic. makes it look quite good


    It's not a standard camera, it wad a modification for wide angle work, so doesn't close up.

    I like the modification with a shorter bed. Even with a lens in the standard 127 to 135mm range the bed is a bit too long (but the ideal size for folding up!).

    I found some similar looking mahogany-a-like wood from an old cigar box to fill in the gaps left by the shutter mechanism. In hindsight I should have left the mechanism in place but it too late now.
