    I got one like that, anyone else that has caught the bug?

    You now have awakened Gear Acquisition Syndrome in hundreds if not thousands of APUG viewers, members and subscribers. I might have lived the rest of my life not knowing about this camera and been quite happy. Thanks for sharing. I think.

    He he if this really takes a shine to you, Peter, its gonna cost ya! Thats the revenge of the machines! Its a large, heavy but very very impresive piece of kit.

    If you bring this and the required large tripod noone will think you're not a Professional Photographer!

    Cost, availability and practicality are the factors here. I don't need any more shiny mechanical film-consuming items in my life. But I can dream!

    Another digiphoto of one of my Makiflex Automatics.

    Makiflex Automatic #2, purchased in Germany. I have attached a flat black (modern) Plaubel lensboard, to which I have mounted a Durst Enlarger recessed lens cone. Finally, my barrel-mounted 120mm Rodenstock Imagon (also purchased in Germany) completes the setup. Focuses very nicely even back to infinity, due to the recess. And I do have the 150mm barrel-mounted Imagon, that I can also place on this board. Good to have a choice.

    I now also have a 9x12cm Plaubel Makiflex back, and have found a good number of 9x12cm film sheaths that perfectly fit into the back.

    Rear View of two Automatic Lenses-150mm & 210mm Xenars.

    Here is a rear-view of my two Plaubel Automatic Makiflex lenses, so you can see the operating mechanisms. On the left, is the 150mm Schneider Xenar. On the right, is the 210mm Schneider Xenar (minus extension cone and board, it bayonets on and off).

    On the 150 you can see the iris-cocking lever, about 7:00 o'clock orientation. About 4:00 o'clock you can see the lever that releases the spring-loaded iris, which happens a microsecond before the focal plane shutter fires. At about 11:00 there is a silver push-button, that manually closes the iris.
