In another thread I recently compared the New Deardorff as the Harley Davidson of cameras.
My 1903 Eastman Improved #2 7X11" is a Thomas Flyer.
My Chamonix 4X5 is a black Beemer with tinted windows.
My 9.5X20" Indian Camera with modern Chamonix film holders is an Isotta Fraschini
and my Ciro-Flex is a 1949 Ford shoebox
