    Art Panorama 170 6x17 camera. Perfect working order. Cosmetically fair, with some paint wear. Lens is excellent condition, clean and clear, all shutter speeds accurate, and smooth adjustments. Comes with ground glass, cable release, extra bubble level, hoya center ND filter, polarizer, and sky filter (protective). The lens is a Caltar W-ii 90mm f/8. Caltars are Shneiders/Rodenstocks under the Caltar name.

    What's the filter ring size on the lens?

    the filter size is 67mm. I also have the 67mm wide-angle Lee adapter ring that I used with it, if you need that.

    Just another note, this camera can focus as close as one foot away by extending the bellows.

    Thank you. I've already got the lee adapter for 67mm - but it's for the RF75 system which might vignette I expect...

    Yes, almost for sure. That's why I got the wide angle adapter.

    There is no vignetting with this adapter and the Lee foundation kit.

    Thank you for the clarification. For now I'll stick with my 4x5 w/ 6x12 back but it's always tempting when one of these super wide panos comes available - they must make wonderful images in the right hands.

    You can always get a 6x17 back for your 4x5 as well. DAYI makes one for about $500.

    I have one of these and have used it for twenty years or more. Phenomenal basic camera that can be used like a point and shoot. F22/F32 at the infinity or just before point and all is in focus. I use mine with a 90 f8 nikkor so don't know about your configuration but lots of depth of field. And the only one of its kind (compared to fuji g617) that has that amazing bellows so instead of close focus of 10m with fuji??? you can get to much less with art pan. Buy a 617 gg and hold it to the rails with the back off and you can set the focus anywhere. And that film is flat, no questions asked. And that is a darn fine price. Good luck to whomever gets it. I have a shen hao 617 which copies the ebony camera and I still know that for some hikes and trips, it will be the art pan for sure.

    IF someone doesn't make an offer soon, I will sadly have to sell this elsewhere on auction.
