    Hello Keith,
    Here are two pictures of the camera, the first with a 90mm mounted on the front:

    I bought the camera from Robert (fuegocito), a user on this board, the second picture is his. I don't know if the camera is a Pocket Expedition. Is it? Perhaps he knows.

    I like 5x7 because it is just a little bigger and heavier than 4x5, and fits in the same f-stop backpack I used for my 4x5 Wisner. The negatives are amazing and 5x7 is an interesting aspect ratio.

    Hey Larry, your camera is in this Wisner catalog & Keith was correct. Your Wisner 5x7 is a Pocket Expedition not a one off.

    Here's a link to a Wisner Catalog. You may want to bookmark this or copy onto your hard drive.*Pocket Exp. is on pg.11

    Thanks, it's a little difficult to tell the models from the graphics in that brochure. Plus, it says that the specs for the 5x7 have not been finalized. It has the "top rear focus" geared mechanism that allows you to bring the rear standard forward for short lenses, as you can see in my picture with the 90mm.

    Almost done restoring, though this is more of a conservation job than a restoration. I made the decision early on to not fully strip and rebuild, but to repair the mechanical bits while freshening up the brass and leaving the character from 80 years intact. As a road trip user and not a display case princess I think that this makes sense.

    Agfa-Ansco 5x7 (with only a 4x5 reducing back for now) with a universal iris and unnamed collinear set in a betax-4. I also have a random 6" rectilinear and considerably more modern 210mm symmar.

    Great! My irrational dream camera is an Ansco 8x10 Universal--that was the camera in the studio I worked at in high school in the mid-60s, and I always thought it would be cool to have one. There was a window where I could have just asked and probably had it, but I wasn't tuned in at the time. :-(
    Thanks, but I'd rather just watch:

    Wow, thats a real beauty. Makes me want one as nice, although I would want a 11x14 if I can find one...

    I had an Ansco grey one I let go.

    The Semi-Centennial style stand is so handy for portraits.
