    Selling my Orbit 4x5...$75

    Looks like this:

    Couple notes:
    Ground-glass is not gridded
    Lock on front standard rise was originally broken, but has been repaired.
    There is a piece missing in the corner of the ground-glass. Oddly enough this makes the glass look normal. Does not affect framing as far as I've noticed.

    I will include a flat #1 lens board and a recessed #0.

    Thanks for looking.

    Film holders, a good set of reading glasses or a magnifying loupe to check focusing, a dark cloth, a very sturdy tripod, a lens shade, a flex shutter release, money for the film and patience to learn it correctly. After that is a lot of fun! Enjoy...

    Majestic tripods often sell for very low prices on eBay. They are sturdy, but old ones may require some attention. The way they are built makes them easy to work on, and parts are available for most models. Here's one on eBay: link.

    You can pick up good film holders for about $5 each on eBay. There are plenty of them around.

    The LFPhoto.info site has a lot of information about LF, and an interesting forum. Here is their guide to equipment for beginners: link.

    Good luck,
    Helen
