    You answered your question yourself, the case is one of the first for the Sinar P and could be used to carry the 4x5 or 5x7 version

    I agree. It's a carry-over case from the Norma era before the swap to the shiny-Al cases they used later on.

    Will your camera fit better if you adjust the shift on each standard so that it lies flat with the rail in the rail holder? If not, modern Sinar cases are not too expensive on the used market, even here in $weden.

    FWIW, I crack up every time I see that diagram of the man carrying the case like a rucksack. Must have been designed by a secret cabal of orthopedic surgeons trying to drum up business.

    I think you are right. Sinar reconfigured the inside from holding a Norma 8x10 to a 4x5/5x7 P. There is a Seller on Ebay right now selling a P with original instructions and what he claims to be the original case and the case looks just like this one.
