'Leica historians for years have wondered why there seemed to be very, very few rigid Summar lenses. Indeed, it was an event when this variation surfaced. Leica Photography magazine, June 1934 provides a possible explanation. Owners of the rigid lens could send it in for conversion to collapsible mount. In 10 Jahre Leica Historica, Leica historian Willy Hahne traces the conversion process by listing hundreds of lenses that began as SUMAR but were converted to SUMUS. This conversion thus explains in part the scarcity of the rigid Summar. It may be added that factory records suggest that less than two thousand rigid mount lenses were completed'. James L.

V.N. 'Prototype' Technical camera, quarter-plate, red leather body covering & bellows + 135mm f4.7 Xenar, Synchro-Compur-P. 'At the end of WWII, Peeling & Van Neck had a further model of press camera at the development stage; this time based on a drop-baseboard design, and with a built-in rangefinder and interchangeable lenses. This was in production from around 1958 (9x12cm size), and incorporating both a FP shutter and a leaf shutter on the lens. They also produced a prototype model with only the front shutter but this never reached the production stage' (British Camera Makers, Norman Channing & Mike Dunn, 1995). Christie's sold three VN Technical Cameras, 2 with red leather & one in black, in The British Camera 1840-1960 - Jim Barron Collection sale in December 2002. The serial numbers of two of the cameras were D108 & D113 (the 3rd number is not recorded), and this camera is serial number D103, which indicates very low production. This camera and the three sold at Christie's are the only VN Technical cameras of this type known.
