    FS: Antique Full Plate Camera Rochester Optical Co for Restoration or Parts

    Rochester Optical Company 6.5 x 8.5" Camera

    Interesting full plate camera, has nice brass hardware.
    This camera needs a few repairs:
    1. Needs screw installed to lock the front folding rail.
    2. Bellows/liner is bunched up inside in a few places and needs to be straightened out.
    3. Needs ground glass.

    Spring back is very nice, with nice hardware. Format is 8.5 x 6.5 inches, reversible.
    Movements are front rise/fall, rear swing and tilt.
    The name plate is missing from the camera, but I have been informed it is a Rochester Optical Co, identified by the distinctive back hardware. Patent date on bellows device is NOV 06.

    $75 plus postage. Paypal accepted.
