The last Pinoramic 120 cameras

The Pinoramic 120 Series 2 cameras were originally offered in 2006. I’m working on assembling the last remaining cameras from the original run of Pinoramic 120 Series 2 cameras.

One of the procedures involves installing a black phenolic inlay at the shutter opening on the front of the camera. This process is described in this photo essay:
