    Re: Voigtlander Heliar Universal Lens vs ?

    The reason I asked is that I tend to shoot my UH and Cooke Knuckler more on the sharp side wide open. For SF, I use a 14in. Pinkham Bi-quality or a 14.5" or 18" Verito. My Veritos have the...

    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    Yes. I am using the Chamonix lens support. The brass Cooke is around 10lbs and too heavy to safely use on the Chamonix without it.
    That is your camera…. I bought it from you in 2018.

    If that is the serial number, it was made in 1913. The lens usually has a serial number on the outside somewhere.
