    I thought I would post a link to this camera (no lens boards, lenses, or film holders) on ebay. I found it while looking for a 4x5 field camera for myself. Looks to be quite a good deal for under $100 (pre-shipping) from a seller with over 2000 positive feedbacks.

    note: if this sort of post is frowned upon, just let me know. I just thought someone working in 5x7 or wanting to work in 5x7 could snatch it right up.

    The Seneca line of cameras are very nice and a deal at the price especially as it comes with a couple of lens boards! I have the 8x10 variant :smile:

    I would be tempted but my wife would give me extreme agrevation if I got yet another 5x7.

    That is a nice deal, I too have the 8x10 version/variant, and already have an Eastman 5x7.

    I have the 11x14 Inmproved. Are the 8x10 and 5x7 lensboards as tough to find? I've made several of my own, but it would be nice to find a source for original boards.

    The lens boards show up from time to time on EBay. Not by brand name always, but if the dimensions are right then who cares anyway.
