Good day to all, I was lucky enough to have one of these come across my path. It has a 65 f/8 Super Angulon lens and takes 4x5 film. I cannot seem to find much information on this and was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on the camera and its history or direct me to a spot on the web where I couls find out more on this. Thanks for you time.

God Bless,
David

Pages 6 & 7 here have useful information on the Burk & James Orbit cameras.

Thanks Ian for this. The sadly, the camera I have in hand isn't the Orbit. The one I have is similar to a Bill Brandt box camera with helicoil focusing, not bellows.

God Bless,
David
