Ernemann Heag XVI

Ernemann Heag XVI is a large format folding bed plate camera manufactured by Ernemann and produced between 1909-c.1918.

The 1913-14 Ernemann catalog claims this camera combines the advantages of the Heag XII and Bob II cameras. It have interchangeable magazine that can take roll-film or plates. This is one of the few cameras that have their film and plate to lie in the same focusing position which is not always the case with combination cameras. [1]
