Wow, I shouldn’t be looking at this before I go to bed!

The Wisner bottoms out at 90mm and needs a recessed lens board for a wider lens but it is too damn small to allow the lens levers to fit comfortably recessed.
The Chamonix can use a 60mm and still have useable movements. With a recessed board, I believe that it will go as short as 45mm.

As for taking the nice camera into the field...I hear you. I have told myself, I don't know how many times, that the Chamonix is as tough as anything that Ansel Adams or Edward Weston used and that I should not flinch at the thought of a tripod mishap or a miss-step.

Looks in excellent shape. Does that have front lens tilt?
It is in pretty good shape, a little worn here and there, and as you can see, the original knobs for the focus rail are gone.

The camera has the full tilt, swing, rise/fall, shift movements. Here's a photo with some movements applied, all but shift if remember correctly.

Here's a fun one, my Heiland Pentax H3:



Notice anything strange? Have a closer look at the name on the prism housing:




Obviously, it was a bad day at the factory

I believe that is stamped so I wonder how many came out that way before someone noticed it? That still would be rare!

I have noticed that the Winders are going for more than the motor drives. I am still looking for a grip b and battery grip m.

Honewell sold Pentax as Heiland in markets outside the U.S.. A little Google work brings up quite a few images of cameras with an imprint like yours, though they may all be of your camera

The other strange thing is the aperture ring on your Super-Tak. Ever notice that it turns the "wrong" direction?

It's not a Super Tak, it's the second version of the Auto Tak 55/1.8. A Super Tak in all but name

The first image of that folder. What is that wire frame next to the lens used for?
