    Just from what I can deduce in the specifications, the Chamonix has sufficient movements expected in a "modern" camera. The movements require additional parts, thus additional weight. I also noticed the wood is overly thick as compare to my old camera.

    The Anthony & Scovill has two movements only. Approximately 2 inches of front rise/fall, and about 10 degrees of rear tilt. And that's it. There is no gearing or metal in the focus train. No swings. No front tilts, etc. The back can be rotated landscape/portrait. And that's about it for features. One aspect beyond it's weight, or lack of, that I really enjoy is that when the camera is closed, it is only 4.25 inches thick. If fits very well into a backpack. The camera is not perfect by any measure, but works fine for normal exposures.
    Oh! Gotcha! Thanks man, for a second I thought I might be investing in the wrong camera

    Got a handsome version of a 4x5 gandolfi from Andrew Plume....

    Had an ancient Ross Petzval lying around...

    Matched those two - just, just able to fit it - and it has to be pulled out to the very maximum in order to make portraits... a little worried whether the glue holds.. But for now it does..

    Ugly looking now - but I'll make a real front plate and replace all the duct tape..

    How about this for a different wood and brass camera from the Victorian era?

    A 15x12" simple teak camera made (or sold) by the Glasgow firm of Lizars. I say "sold by" because, although they made cameras, there was an identical 10 x 8" camera originally sold by Middlemiss of Bradford on the bay last night.
    Didn't (mine) look very good on the listing (photo 1:detached/badly folded bellows, missing brasswear?). But, once again, condition was far better than the photographs so no more than a few hours work for once (photos 2 and 3). Much lighter than the continental equivalent - the 30 x 40cm reisekamera - but slightly longer to set/dismantle. I can live with that.

    Lizars apart from their own stores were also a wholesale manufacturer so cameras may well have been rebadged. I'll check their adverts again when back in the UK.

    They didn't rebadge cameras at the time your 15x12 was made that began during or at the end of WWII, they had quite a large factory in Glasgow.
