    I have a 4x5 Gowland Pocket View Camera for sale that includes 2 lens boards–1–Copal 1, and 1–Copal 0. The Copal 1 board obviously had someone take a file to it to make the hole–it isn't very pretty, but it works fine. I weighed the camera and it is exactly 2 1/4 pound, or 1 kilogram. The spring back, with bail, has a new ground glass by Steve Hopf, and I will include 2 hex wrenches to tighten the standards to the rail. When the camera body is removed from the rails, which takes about 1 minute or less, it collapses into a package 7.5x9x2.5 inches, making it very easy to carry in a small lightweight shoulder bag. In fact the Gowland, a small lens such as a 135 or 150mm, 2-3 film holders, and a lightweight tripod makes a great go anywhere 4x5 kit. The bellows extends to about 12 inches. The front standard has rise and fall, swings, axis tilt, and shift. The rear has axis tilt and swings. It is really quite a versatile little camera that weighs next to nothing.

    I am asking $275.00 which includes insured shipping in the US. I am happy to ship it anywhere else for an additional $10.00. 3% to APUG of course! PayPal only please. Any questions?
