Competitor View camera

A Competitor View camera by The Senecca Camera Manufacturing Company, Rochester, New York, USA. Wood and nickel plated metal, half plate camera fitted with a Wollensak lens in a Gammax No. 2 shutter.

Weird one this, don’t see them very often but still a nice looking light weight camera. Would keep it but will be selling it on as I don’t need this many half plate cameras.

Needs a bit of a clean and the rack looking at as it doesn’t run true and is a little stiff.

Now sold to a chap in Beijing, China. Cost a small fortune to ship it at over 4kg total.
