    Hi All,

    I really hate to see these guys go but they don't get along with my arthritic hands so move on they must. I have 2 2x3 Century Graphics and I'd like to sell them as a set if I can but I will entertain offers for individual pieces. Here's what I have:

    #1 has a working RF, VF, and 103/4.5 Trioptar Lens and the appropriate infinity stop installed. Also includes a "23" Graphic Roll Film Back. Everything is clean and working. Shutter sounds good but has not been professionally checked. This cam is ready to go, just add film.

    #2 is more of a "field" camera, no RF or VF but has the full graphic back with groundglass. They ground glass fits on #1 perfectly as well. GG folding cover is included as well.

    Also included are 3 spare lensboards and two rolls of color film to get you going.

    This is a really versatile setup in that you can have a field style camera, a press style with VF and RF, use rollfilm or cut film with the appropriate holders.

    One of the biggest advantages is the size of these cams. I've included a pic of them with my iPhone to give you an idea of the size. You get movements with a cam the size of a Nikon F5!

    Hi, interesting offering you have here. I have some questions. What format is the roll film holder? Can you rotate the roll film holder, or is it horizontal only? Do you have any 2 x 3 filmholders for the ground glass? Do both cameras feature "movements": rise, tilt, etc.? When is the last time you shot with the camera?

    Thanks in advance,

    -- Mark

    Hi,

    It's a 6x9 holder that takes 120. The graphics don't have rotating backs but there are tripod sockets on two sides so you would rotate the camera instead of the back. I don't have any sheet film holders but they are out there. They both have movements (rise, fall, shift, drop bed). I ran a roll through #1 about two weeks ago and everything functioned fine. I haven't shot with the second camera. I bought it for the lensboards and ground glass back but the seller assured me it was 100% working and I don't have any reason to doubt that.
