Folmer & Schwing 12x20 ULF Landscape View Camera
Here comes something that i rarely had in my hands before, a really big ULF landscape camera made by one of the best makers of the past: Folmer & Schwing (which belonged to Eastman Kodak).
The camera comes in the 12x20 format (~ 30cm x 50cm) but for this size it is really lightweight and quite compact. A perfect companion for outdoor ULD landscape work.
This specimen comes in a really good and authentic condition. The fantastic wood (i would guess its cherry) shows
only minimal wear and the brass is shiny to most part. All i did here
was a carefull cleaning of the wood and metall parts, overall it is
still in its authentic condition. The bellows on the other hand seem to be brand new and absolute light tight. Mechanically everything seems to work,
opening and moving the parts (like focusing), there is only one knob missing on one side. The camera comes without a plateholder, but there are severall ebay sellers where you can buy a 12x20 plateholder.
The camera comes with 2 undrilled lensboards. If you buy a lens with the camera from my shop, i will drill the lensboard, attach the lens and combine shipping costs.
