Certo Dolly Super Sport
My Dolly looks nice, but it has a peculiar feature. In the assembly of the camera at the factory, the body and the shell of the camera were put together in the reverse of the proper orientation. The result is that the shutter release is positioned such that the user's fingers get in the way of the view. I turned the shutter and lens so that the release was on the underside out of the way, but that results in the cable release socket being inaccessible behind a strut. All that aside, the Dolly is still a nice shooter. The Trioplan lens is a very sharp three-element design, and the big old Compur shutter remains sturdy and accurate.
