    NOT COMPLETE

    I have come into possition of what I believe to be an 8A (11x14) Century Studio Camera.

    I also have two barrel lenses that came with the camera (please see photots attached). This camera has had a hard life. The gear wheel has at some point had the handle bent. Since it's made of iron, I did not attempt to fix it.
    The casters are missing from the feet.
    The stand support is broken (but I believe it could be fixed/replaced - I have not attemped repair).
    There are no bellows.
    There is no ground glass.
    There are no film holders.
    One lens is mounted on a board too small for the 8A (requires 10x10 lens board).
    The other lens is not mounted.
    We can negotiate on including the plunger.

    Both lenses may be rectilinear, but I know in fact one is.
    One lens I believe requires apature slides (the metal kind with different sized holes), but I do not have them.
    The other lens is newer, and does have a built in iris (f8-128 if I recall correctly).

    If you have any further questions, please get in contact with me.
    Yes, we can ship this camera, but be ware: This camera is heavy and might even require freight shipping, which will cost very much more. There is no free shipping!

    I am thinking $200 for the camera/lenses plus shipping. If this is not a fair deal, please let me know. Thank you for looking!

    If I lived closer, I'd be all over that for $200.

    If this is not spoken for and shipping to MN is not outrageous, I'll take it!

    Apologies all around. Things became very busy here and I haven't set down in front of a computer for about two weeks.
    The camera and lenses have been sold.
    The stand is still available.
