|Heh... Thanks danfromm. That is the site that convinced me my camera is a Baynton. I just googled "field camera" and scanned images to see if I could find something close. That was the closest I could find. It matches the description (mahogany, finally crafted, brass) and the tower at the front with the 2 knurled knobs to lock the front of bellows to the fold out front. It looks like this:
The knurled knobs are the same style, the lockdown brass grooved plate for elevation is the same style. It just "looks" like the same company. Not conclusive of course but some compelling evidence and nothing clearly inconsistent. I did take some photos on my a7 with the lens. The lens also has no makers mark, just a logo and the F-stops marked. I will post some a bit later in the lens forum.
photos are moments frozen in time
