    I think I have three of the models represented - a Purma Speed, a blue Ensign Ful-vue and an Ilford Advocate. The latter, sadly is broken, and likely to stay that way unless I find a donor.

    I fear I am unlikely ever to own a Wrayflex or a Witness!

    Anyone else?

    I've not tried a Witness but I've handled both the earlier (mirror viewing) and later (pentaprism) versions of the Wrayflex. Neither impressed me and I had a Pentacon Fm at the time!

    I've seen an Ilford Witness, but I wasn't allowed to touch it!

    If you want to try having a play with it yourself, it's currently on sale at the Real Camera Shop in Manchester for a very reasonable £12,000!!!

    Cheers, Jeff

    Fornicate me, that's pricey!
