This Busch's Roia 9x12 sized camera is in many ways similar to Mentor Klapp cameras. it has almost the same shutter mechanism, so either one got the mechanism from the other. The struts and rest are slightly different and possibly own design. it was made by Emil Busch A.G. in Rathenow Germany. Camera is nice quality though choice of same wood as in Mentor has caused some cracking as well. If something positive to add compared to Mentor... the knobs feel better to finger. Enjoy the pictures below.
