12x15 Field ULF Camera (Project)

€500.00 Sold Out

For offer is a british 12x15 (or 30.5cm x38cm) Field Camera project i bought over a year ago but never managed to finish, or start for that matter. Since right now i have another 6 camera projects in the pipeline (and im fed up with camera restauration btw) i will give this away for the price i purchased it. Maybe someone else can finish this off. Cameras of that size and age are very rare, and a working specimen would cost around 1.5K.

The good:

- the camera is quite complete, most of the needed stuff is there, some minor stuff is missing

- the bellows are there

- the original focusing back and the plateholder are there (almost always missing!)

The bad:

- bellows seem ok on the first glance, not dried out, but feature quite some large holes on severall sites, which needed to be fixed (or replaced completly)

- the brass is quite oxidized and needs to be polished again

- the wood would also need probably a good cleaning/relaquering

- some minor wooden parts of the rail system are missing, nothing to bad, but you would need some carpeting skills there (or have a friend with such)

Allover, this is a 'buy at your own risk' offering. If something is missing or something is broken, its up to you to replace/repair that.

Insured and tracked shipping cost:

Germany - 20 eur
EU* - 30 eur
Worldwide - 60 eur
