    The 150mm Symmar-S has a 210mm image circle. The 10x15 film requires 183mm to cover film/plate.

    So that one will work.

    Thank you for making me aware of this. My copy just arrived today. I ordered it from Lindemanns in Germany; they seemed to be the only source google turned up for me. First impression is it's a beautiful book done with the rigor one would expect from someone who did biomedical research.

    I'd also hope that he's donated a copy to the George Eastman Museum; it would be a valuable addition to their library/collection.

    I was just given a pre-war Linhof (according to Bob Salomon) in a box of old cameras. S/N 19507 . I'll post photos when I have time.
