This very rare Kodak wide angle view camera is very slim, and does not have bellows. The front accepts interchangeable panels should the user wish to fit other suitable lenses. There is a spring-back with a ground glass, two plate holders and a transport case.
Bill Brandt used one of these cameras for photographs in his book "Wide Angle Nudes".

The wide angle lens has a very large depth of field, and the aperture of f45 eliminates the need to focus. The field of view is 110 ° or the equivalent to a rectilinear lens of 14 or 15 mm on a 35 mm camera.
