Deardorff 5x7 field camera SET

€1100.00 EUR

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.


History: Deardorff cameras always had that special aura around them, like a Bugatti or Rolls Royce of the camera world. The company offered probably the worlds finest and most renowned field cameras for many decades, which (some say) are still better then any Tachihara or Charmonix.


Condition: This specimen comes in a good and authentic condition. The wood shows some wear, but not to much that it cries to repaint it. All i did here was a carefull cleaning of the wood and metall parts, overall it is still in its authentic condition. The bellows are light tight and in a very good condition. Mechanically everything is working, opening and moving the parts (like focusing) is really satisfying, everything clicks and feels right here, like a well handled oldtimer. Its probably not the lightest field camera but it offers fantastic stability and reliability.


The camera comes with a 5x7 rotating back (landscape/portrait) and 2 undrilled lensboard (probably not original, but really well made) and two(!) 5x7 Fidelity filmholder. If you buy a lens form my collection for this camera i can adapt the lens to it for free and combine shipping costs.
