€250.00 EUR

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

Condition: This wooden field camera comes in ok condition for beeing about 80 years old or maybe even older. The ebonized wood and the nickel plated brass show some Patina and wear but are still in useable condition. The bellows look good, and authentic. I did a quick test and they seem lighttight. The maximum extension is about 40cm, thought the final 10cm are quite tough to move, so it might need a fix there. The camera comes with a rotating fullplate back and a fitting fullplate holder. The holder offers a halfplate (aprox. 14cm x 11cm) insert which was used for wetplate. But other formats like 5x7 or 4x5 are possible if the proper redusinc frame is done.

The camera does offer some movements, and is still very compact. It might need some adjustment and minimal work but still offers a good starting point.

It comes with an already drilled lensboard. If you buy a lens form my collection for this camera i can adapt the lens to it for free and combine shipping costs.
