The is an fairly rare Al-vista panoramic camera in amazing shape. Leather body is in great shape and still is soft. All the straps are intact --- even on the camera case that it comes with.Hand straps are never intact. Even the felt inside the case is still there and OK. I believe most of the parts are on this camera. The compartment on the bottom (it opens to show the paper label) contained a view finder of some type and some sized metal fan pieces.
Some of these might be missing. With some prodding the windup spring mechanism that moves the lens across the film plain works, but I'm sure it could use a tune up. As far as running film through it, I have no idea. But if it doesn't work, it shouldn't take too much to get to do so.The level works fine on the top and the screw knobs that hold the camera together work great. All in all --- this is a great camera in great shape. Please give me a shout if you have questions. THE FINE PRINT AND FAQS. Carefully examine my studio-quality photographs.
