    Question Hey All! First Post! Help me Identify this 8x10

    Hey All!

    I picked up this 8x10 mounted on a crazy 10 foot stand (rare kodak century stand I believe) but I cannot for the life of me identify this camera. There are no visible makers marks or badges.

    Any help appreciated!

    No clue, but that is a big stand.

    Not sure what brand it is, but I don't think it's a field camera.

    Looks like an ordinary 8x10 for studio and commercial work. The full rotation back is nice. Look on Piercevauble.com there's hundreds of pages of catalogs, lots of pictures of this kind of stuff. That stand is gorgeous, I don't think my wife would let me keep that in our living room, that's the only place that I could stand it up. :-)
    Would make great portraits.

    Given the stand height, it looks like a camera used for cataloq photography, much like a Deardorff S11, which is what Sears and Montgomery Ward used for their catalogues.

    those two big metal knobs on the back adjust front tilt?

    I'm kind of intrigued by the wood dowel and wire frame near the front....some kind of bellows sag help maybe??

    very cool set up though
