I get asked from time to time about my Hofner Verithin which is shown here and also on our contacts page. Here it is shown edge-on under the peering eye of the Graflex Speed Graphic which is a great old 4X5 inch press camera with a cool bellows and a huge flashgun. I've written about how to repair them.
The Graphic lens can be air actuated . That cylinder next to the lens is an air dashpot that can be used to push the shutter release via a rubber bulb and tube arrangement.
The Hofner has very well done kerfing in the F- holes, and at the periphery of the body. It has a carved top which supports the tremelo tailpiece with its die spring made from a GT6.
