This camera was owned by Hugh Ackroyd, noted aerial photographer from Portland, Oregon. He used it for fixed-wing aerial assignments until he was 94 years old. He would usually fly in a Cessna because it was easy to put the window up and out of the way, and it was easy to communicate with the pilot even though the window was open. This camera is fully functional and ready to shoot with. The Copal 1 shutter has a push-to-focus button and. Works fine at all speeds. From 1 to 1/400th. The lens is much newer than the camera. There is a substantial amount of wear on the camera body exterior from decades of use. The photographer had two of these cameras, fitted with different lenses, and this is the newer of the two cameras. The camera and lens is fixed-focus at infinity. It comes with the Linhof finder. There is a ground glass focusing back. It uses ordinary 4×5 cut film holders. It comes with a clear lens protector, a yellow and a red filter. The photographer used infra-red film in this camera with good results. I have no control over it and have no way of finding out how much it will be.
