Camera in the pictures is Simmons Omega 120 press camera desgined and made by Simmon Brothers USA which was more known for it's darkroom equipment like enlargers. This was the only camera they ever made and the design was later sold to Konica which continued it with a successfull line of Koni-Omega cameras. My intention at some point is to get a later Koni-Omega and make a test comparing these two cameras. I like the looks of this camera..... it is rather unusual but it is well made quality camera. It actually has some of the feeling of use as the German Makina line of cameras... both feel very intuitive to use and have very clear big mechanical parts for taking hold of and operating it. Here is a link to more info on this camera.
