13x18 or 5x7 Travell Kit Field Camera

€120.00 Sold Out

History: An early 13x18 field camera, that was made in Europe (probably german maker) somewhere between 1890 and 1900. The nice part here is, that it comes with some plateholders (not original) and a Travell bag.

This is actually the same style of camera that i did start out with wetplate over 9 years ago!


Condition: The condition is nice for its age. It features the typical 3 position setup with a fine focus rail in the rear. The bellows are quite nice, and made from black leather. I think they should be lighttight, sine i dont see any pinholes, but i wouldnt guarantee it. 

The included plateholders are nice and definetly the right format for this camera, but sadly they dont fit, as it is! This works nice as a decoration piece, but if you really want to shoot with the camera, you would need to adapt the plateholders. I think its definetly possible, but will require some woodworking skills.
