I'm a couple hours north. I have a print shop close to me that still use a couple of these to make copies.

I'm now the proud owner of this camera for $27.98. It's a good three hour drive to pick it up but I'm doing the happy dance.

Nealhpage it is an studio view camera.

Thanks for posting it.

Awesome Fred! If I didn't live on the complete other side of the country, I can bet that our basement would be a little bit more full. :D

Freakin' sweet :thumbsup:

I just had a great/stupid idea. Put a 35mm lens on the front, attach it to a DSLR, then connect it to a computer and a printer...put the whole works inside that gargantuan thing...then tell people it's a really old Polaroid. :D

Yep! Only 5 hours of drive time and 3 1/2 hours of taking it apart. Some 800 mg IB's and my back is like new, well as new as it's going to get.

That's awesome. Now i think you should reduce to 4x5 :lol:

Where on earth would you get paper/film big enough for that back?

I don't think you could call it a field camera either!

The film holders were for 20x24 sheet film, at least the ones we found. They did have an old darkroom set up but all the items were in poor shape and who knows when it was used last.

Made for an interesting day and now I'm just waiting for the wife to get home and see it in the middle of the living room.

Might be sleeping outside tonight.
