    Arca Swiss. Which model and year. Help

    Hi all
    I was given Arca Swiss 8x10 today. It is beautiful camera and everything works. But I was wondering can you help me. I was wondering which model it is and when it was produced?

    Thanks all

    I'm not an expert by any means. I think you have a model C. The A had Axial tilts, the B had base tilts, and the C had both.

    I can't make a guess on production dates. I'm pretty sure these were discontinued by the mid 90s. If not quite a bit earlier.

    "Given"? Cool!

    It looks like the same model as mine without base tilts on the carriers. Mine has a small sticker with Oschwald on the front of the rail. This link is in French but there us a catalog link which details the camera.
