    Might also be the 300/4 in P6 mount.

    look at the size of the body vs. lens- could it be something like the Pentacon 300/4 on a 35mm body?

    The shape of the prism suggests a Topcon, and the short, stubby lens looks like a 500mm mirror lens that was popular in that era. The tripod looks like a Miller F fluid head from the 60's.

    Body is an Exakta of some sort, lens is 300mm of some make; perhaps aforementioned Pentacon adapted to Exakta mount?

    In other pictures online it looks like he has an exakta ever-ready case hanging from his neck. So I'd second Exakta.

    Lens is either the Meyer 300mm F/4 for Exakta or the Pentacon re-brand of the same lens. I am cross referencing One Man's Wilderness. No mention of exact camera model or lens make, but it's an Exakta with a 300mm, and it sure looks like the Meyer lens in profile.

    The pushed forward shape of the prism would suggest a late IIa or a IIb. Or at least a prism from that era.

    The camera body has a prominent blank-metal hinge or lock with a special contour. I guess that should be the first feature to start from.

    Sonnar 180mm matches tripod mounting location, flare-out near the front of the lens, and the sharp taper towards the lens mount.

    The Pentacon Six seems to have similar film door hinge and below-the-body winding knob, as well as the shutter release canted forward.


    It looks awfully thick (front to back) to be 35mm.
