I've never heard of this camera but it looks awesome!

I suspect only the lens is a 'Sinar'. The rest looks like no Sinar I have ever seen. It's pretty distinctive, with a double rail and a round lensboard, so I'm sure anyone who has used one will recognise it.

'Studio 7' is probably the model name for the stand that holds the camera. The styling is the same as the camera, so I would look for a lesser-known maker of studio equipment. Fatif and IFF come to mind. IFF use an asymmetric three-legged foot to their studio stands rather like this one.

"Brevettato" is unlikely as a model name. It means patented. That may be a suggestion that your camera is Italian, though.

The Italian wording, double rail and round lens board all remind me of my big Durst enlarger. Were they ever involved in camera design?:confused:

Durst made some budget to mid range 35mm cameras in the forties/fifties, but as far as I know nothing more than that - I have a Rapid cartridge half-frame made by them, shaped almost like a 8mm camera.

The round angled lens board indeed shows what might be a Durst influence, but on the other hand, there seems to be a crudeness to the casts which does not look like anything Durst I've ever seen. My verdict: Made by some other Italian maker.

It was made by Lupo, Turin, Italy in 1962. Studio 7 13x18. Lupo was first class, right after Durst.
Read all about it here (http://www.nadir.it/ob-fot/CECCHI_IFI_4/index.htm) under Lupo.
