It's a Stereo Realist that I got for Xmas. The two little windows close to the baseplate are the RF.

Nice collection, BTW.

Kodak Medalist, 1946 version (Same one as in my avatar.) A lovely camera. In the lens-mug, my own cold brew

On the other hand, both your Anscos are cool, so I won't complain if nobody else does!

[Why do so many US American products look like very very very kitschy sci-fi movie stage props?]

My American RF is a racial mixture (sorta), or even lens-wise un-American
— since it has an Enna Mnchen lens, but well, your army domesticated the Huns then

Is anyone's Medalist converted to 120? I've always been impressed by the negs from these cameras but the thought of filing down 120 spools or re-spooling to 620 puts me off! Is the conversion available or difficult to DIY?

Here's what I think is the rarest camera in my collection. A Cee-ay 35. Only made for a few months before the tooling was sold to Ciro and it became the Ciro 35.
