I wandered into my friend Lee Hartwell’s gem of an antique shop the other day and was caught mid-sentence by this utterly compelling specimen of design. Lee kindly lent it to me for a bit so I could take some quick photos. I don’t know much about this piece other than what function it performed. In my quest for further information I found a very cool site showcasing Soviet era camera equipment. They have one housing that is straight out of an early Bond movie.

Update: I looked a little harder and found this listing on ebay. The housing is made by Ikelite.
