    Getting a little off track, I use the original 4x5 F clamp for my Norma cameras. This clamp does not permit any kind of tilt. If I want to tilt a camera, I can use the tripod head.

    Thanks for all the responses. A view camera having no movements being way up there in $$$ boggles my mind since its construction is so simple & basic. But anyways, am in the process of following a lead for acquiring a Polaroid MP-4 for very little if at all any money for the Museum. Still have in storage (shelves in one far corner of the basement) many accessories for a MP-4 including a COPYMATE II 4 lamp lighting unit (with extra bulbs). But more importantly still have a 12cm E. Leitz Wetzlar Summar (mounted on the front of Copal shutter) that exceeds any of the Polaroid Tominon optics. Thanks again for all the info.

    Bare in mind:
    These copy cameras are made to very fine tolerances.
    There is an extremely small market for them.
