    ...since I've 'collected' cameras, a year or so!;)

    I've decided to put an end to this and got a new project going:

    A Hoh & Hahne made in Leipzig, not your common camera. As far as I recall, beneath the black paint of the camera's bed is a beautiful piece of wood, which I might bring to life. Will see when it arrives.

    How exciting! I would love to know if there is hardwood underneath it all.

    I'm intrigued by the film back on this folder. It looks so cool! You think you can restore this puppy? :)

    There should be wood, I have seen only another camera like this and it was restored, beautiful reddish wood (mahogany, cherry?).

    The film pack is a rollfilm adapter of sorts, can't wait to see it. I think I'll be able to restore it nicely, somehow larger cameras like this are easier to restore than the smaller (35mm and under) ones. Will keep you posted. ;)

    I love those cameras. I have a Maximar and an AVUS that look exactly like your H&H. Good luck restoring it, it will be a beauty for sure. Nice to have a roll film back as well.... 620 I would imagine?

    The following is an excerpt from an e-mail I received today, a very nice fellow in germany, whom I managed to outbid on E-bay:

    That, I didn't know. And apparently, the rollfilm back is called a Rada Filmback. Will research...

    The Rada I have for the Maximar has several thin brass masks that can do 6x6 645 6x7 6x9, of course without. Nice feature to have since I don't have any plates for the camera.

    enjoy.

    I will use it to take some roll film shots, after I restore it.

    And thanks again for the Rada manual! You're awesome!!! :D

    I have seen those roll film backs and one somewhat like it that went on a graflex. The one I saw was 620... My favorite to restore would be a 3a but I'm not so sure I'm up to making a bellows. It would have to be a custom build since the opening on a 3a is so funky..I want the sheet film back for the kodak 3a.. I guess there was some special size film since the camera was for their postcard sized roll film... It could easily do 4x5 but the back look like it attaches in place of the regular back.

    Can you use an RB67 120 film back on the Graflex, it's a grafloc back ya know?

    4x5 is generally confused with most of these old folders, they are actually 9x12 which is very close but slightly smaller. I was thinking of making a 4x5 adapter but I really haven't invested any time into it yet. I'm sure it's not all that difficult.

    If you want to take it off and on, you have to put the graflok back on the camera before you can use the roll film holder.

    Of course when I build a polaroid conversion, I epoxy the back on so that it never comes off. Just remove the transport to load it.

    This s*cks!:x Instead of the H&H camera I got a Kodak No.1A Autographic Junior in the package! The seller screwed up shipments and I was able to track down the buyer who bought the Kodak. We'll have to exchange items, I guess...

    Question to other Ebayers that might have been in the same situation:

    Do I request a refund (from the seller) for the shipment needed for the exchange be made or do I just swallow it? I don't think it's fair to both of us buyers to have to put up extra money for shipping, after we paid what we were asked. Is it?

    Most sellers (not me) are so screwy on shipping costs they won't even refund it on an item that is pure junk. You can actually make money on a sale that is a total refund, if you over charge for shipping and keep it.

    I would definitely try it is his fault. I would tell him that if he doesn't refund the shipping you are going to give him negative feedback if he does you won't.

    If the 1A buyer makes the exchange it is just because he is a nice guy. The camera you have is probably worth quite a bit more.
