    Wish I could post a picture of the tripod combined mount I'm using now, it was something that was used with a Rolleiflex camera in the 1950's. Not sure why my attachments aren't loading up here, whether due to my lack of post or my computer skills ?

    May order one of the German wooden tripods and a Oberwerk mount. Or if I can manage to find time to get to a local photo supply store and find a tripod and mount.

    I had ordered a mount and tripod online, but I returned them do to the condition of the merchandise and containers.
