    Trying to identify this equipment

    Hi, a friend has the equipment in the attached photos, and she asked me to help her identify it. It appears to be some kind of Nikon medium format stuff, essentially a view camera, but I was also wondering what type of lenses and back it accepted, what it was originally designed for, what it's called etc.

    Thanks for your help in advance

    It's part of an enlarger? First part is the bellows and you can see how the column would attach. My guess-)

    Parts for a Nikon Multiphot? Bellows and mirror box, to be exact.

    I want to say that it was a copy camera for 4x5, much like the Polaroid MP4 copy stands were. I could be wrong, but that would be the most sensible explanation for that housing.

    Nikon makes a substantial amount of medical equipment as well.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Yes just type Nikon Multiphot into Google and search Google images.

    Dan's entirely right.
