    Found this cleaning out my late fathers house. Never saw a lens. No name anywhere on it. The film holders are 5x7.

    My father had a portrait studio for a short while after the WWII.

      It's difficult to distinguish the makers of these unmarked European cameras (yes ... this isn't American) because the designs are so close to each other. In looking at the bellows chamfering, metal binding reinforcements, and so forth, my best guess is this possibly being a later Ernemann (Dresden, Germany) Globus view camera. Globus cameras were made by Neue Görlitzer Camera-Werke after 1920 through the 1990s. Again, that's my best guess. Otherwise if you find a lens the camera is definitely useable.
