12x16 Field ULF Camera (Project)

€400.00 EUR

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

For offer is a european 12x16 (or 30cm x40cm) Field Camera project i bought over a year ago but never managed to finish, or start for that matter. Since im fed up with camera restauration meanwhile im willing to let this one go for a portion of the price that i paid for 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 there but show quite some openings in the corners. so either you will need to tape the 4 sides here or make new ones.

- the original focusing back, it also has a fitting plexiglass plate in there, but the glass needs to be sanded to work as a focusing glass.


The bad:

- the brass is quite oxidized and might need to be polished again (or not)

- the rails of the rear platform are missing (or they were ran down?) not sure, but you will need to replace with with other rails. not sure, i think thats someone one can still find online

- the center rail in the rear was replaced by a modern woodplate which works fine, but will need some restrainers to be adapted



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.
