I've never heard of it before, but for the curious (including me) there's one on the 'Bay right now...item #280390414416.

Not much info but at least there's a few photos.

Cheers,
Bruce

For a tiny bit of information, go here http://www.archive.org/stream/educationalscree12chicrich/educationalscree12chicrich_djvu.txt and use the editor to find "Pal Ko"

A user's manual is, or perhaps may have been, on offer here: http://www.camerabooks.com/Products/Palko-Auto-Winding-Roll-Film-Camera-Brochure__MF1645-fslsh-Palko-spc-Brochure.aspx

An advert is posted here http://photo.net/classic-cameras-forum/00UAdV Like one of the responders, I don't see how they managed ground glass focusing with roll film.

verben1, with all respect you really ought to learn how to use Google.

Good luck selling it. Its way out of my price range, so I won't pursue it.

But it is intriguing. I can't imagine how it can be focused on the GG with film loaded.

Cheers,

Dan

Wow, I never heard of this type of camera either. How has your experience with it been so far? Apparently you can buy a manual for $3.90 here --> http://www.oldtimercameras.com/ephotozine/stock/Model.asp?Model=16498&ModelPage=true.
