    Camera in excellent shape with only minor signs of use. Movements good, ground glass clean. Bellows light tight and flexible. Comes in the original hard case with a dark cloth and four graphic 4x5 holders. Excellent way to break into LF. - 100$ plus shipping.

    That's a great deal.

    That's what I paid for my first 4x5- 25 years ago! It too is a no frills metal Calumet. Black metal, black bellows, and on a 26" "long bar". No case though.... These cameras will survive the next ice-age. At least. :wink:

    If you know what size your shutter is I should have a lens board to fit.

    Since I'm still a medium format shooter, I have no LF lenses other than a really old kodak anastigmat in a weird ball bearing shutter. If you have a board that isn't drilled that works fine, or is there a specific measurement I should look for to measure how big the board is?
    Thanks a bunch.

    I've got a blank board with a 3/8" starter hole for an extra 10$

    Why not toss in the lensboard on the deal-might help sell it to some youngster that needs the extra nudge to make the jump to LF.

    I dont' think 110 is a bad deal for a camera, board, holders, dark cloth and case.

    Can't seem to find my darn tape measure, looks like a little larger than 1/2"?

    One of the best monorails ever made, IMHO. Excellent controls and built like a tank. Plus, the bellows last forever.

    Meh, I'm a Fujichrome guy. Either that or B&W, in which case I'll buy a box of TXP to compliment the FP4
