    The photo in the listing of that same Woody 45W model in my Nippon Camera annuals shows the old-style "Nagaoka Seisakusho" nameplate, and the camera is attributed to 長岡製作所 at the Ueno address.

    There are several options with camera rewards. Scroll down and review the entire page.



    Search eBay for "COSMOS CIRCLE" under "Cameras and Photo". As of this moment there are several listings.

    Re: 4x10 how does it work and what do I need

    90mm Super-Angulon XL, stopped down, just barely. Long ago, Keith Canham built a handful of 4x10 box cameras around the 90 SA XL in a helical focus mount. Most users will want the center filter.

    In current Canham production, all of the cameras up through 5x7 and 4x10 still use the Toyo field-sized board. However, 8x10 and larger are now made to take Sinar/Horseman boards. As noted, this is...
