Thanks for the information Ian. I found one listed on eBay and looked it up to see what you were talking about. I had never heard of this brand before tonight. Yes, this looks very much like a Linhof Master Teknica. This would do.

So would a Toyo 45AX. YES that is a sweet camera. Same thing goes for one of the Wista's I forget the model number, but I do like the Toyo even more. It is compact, black, precision metal machining and finishing. I had an opportunity to hold one last spring shooting wildflowers, met up with a photographer who had one and I think it's a superb camera in every way. And it has lots of accessories, but I guess the same could be said about the Wista's and of course Linhof's.
