OK, another post for my first Century Graphic. It is just a cheap bakelite box, nothing special, a place to mount a lens and a film holder, with an accordion thing to keep things dark between the two. The only way to focus it is either by using the scale mounted on the bed, or look at things upside down on the GG. Thus the tripod mount threads are rather well broken in. When just out and about within yelling distance form the vehicle, I like to haul the sturdy Berlebach 2042. This is a nice tripod support. And it's wood ! So while it isn't more than ten years old, it is classic, and more versatile than is evident here. The legs kick out, and the center post has a ball head type swivel.
