    I'd say Crown/Speed Graphic as one category, and Graflex SLR as another. Thinking of which, that's another category you're missing - the Graflex SLRs.

    Have you cross checked your list against the latest edition of Strobel? There is a comprehensive list in the back. While it is not 100% complete it will make responding to this a lot easier.

    What do you mean by "Horseman Technical", other than cameras that would already be considered "Horseman Field" or "Horseman Woodman Field"?

    What do you mean by "Toyo studio/field"? If you mean the VX-125 cameras, you should probably say that explicitly - I don't think it will be clear to everybody.

    If you're going to differentiate wooden vs metal camera lines, you should list Wista DX and VX/SP/RF lines separately.

    You left out the Wisner Traditional series, though I'm not sure what insight is gained by breaking out specific Wisner wooden camera lines anyway.

    Two of my cameras are on that list, the rest are probably better called "collectible". The Carbon Infinity may not be an antique, but it seems that most of the 60 made have ended up in collections...

    Theproblem is that there area too many missing ... if I count the ones that Louis mentioned + others I can think of that list is as long as the list you posed. Go to Strobel. Go to a couple of older editions and you will get the ones that aren't current. Bettr than polling the folks here.

    Probably should include all Graphic/Graflex models in one catagory since there have been so many variations along the same theme over the years...I've got three different ones myself but my favorite, the Super Graphic doesn't find itself on the list! The Busch Pressman has been mentioned in this forum a number of times and isn't on the list.

    Michael's problem isn't to make a comprehensive list of all large format cameras ever made, it's to come up with a reasonably parsimonious classification that captures the cameras used by his readers today, without lumping too many into the "other" category.

    If he has 327 readers who use 327 different cameras, then this isn't going to work. But I suspect that's not the case.

    For Wisner you list "Wisner Expedition Field Series" and "Wisner Technical Field Series". You can either:

    --Reduce it to "Wisner Cameras"
    --Keep two entries: "Wisner Expedition incl. Pocket and Flight" plus "Wisner Technical/Traditional/Lightweight"
    --Expand it to include: "Wisner Expedition Series", "Wisner Pocket Expedition Series", "Wisner Flight", "Wisner Technical Field", "Wisner Traditional Field", "Wisner Lightweight Field"

    (or some other combination of the latter)
