This Universal named 4x5 sized press camera was made by a UK company Dawe Instruments. Another camera by them which is probably more known is the Nelrod Liteflash. Neither of these cameras are very common. Mine came with a case and a bunch of accessories which is always nice with these more special cameras as finding them later can be nearly impossible. The camera itself is well made and gives a nice feeling of handmade accurate work. It has some nice ideas and features like for example the distance dial on top of the camera. Below are some pictures of the camera, its's accessories and case. As a user it is quite good, despite being a bit on the heavy side and the sharp corners are not the best compared to so many presscams with rounded corners.
