    For Bob (No batteries)

    Well Bob!

    I have to apologise, throwing a battery in your face like that (My thread about what i mounted on the back of my Chamonix 4x5) That was sneaky!

    I promise, no battery in tis thread

    This is 2 cameras that is in the queue for restoration and later on, work in the field.
    And I promise you Bob:
    No batteries!!!

    These cams are absolute beauties. 4x5 or 8x10?

    The “small” camera ( the second one) is 8x10
    and the large one (about 2 times the small one in size) is 12x16 cm.

    Regarding termites, it´s like an old Stradivarius, the vermin's feel that it is a work of art and select other food.
