    This is an ICA Trix (I think) in postcard format (3 1/4 x 5 1/2). It's in pretty good shape. I checked for light leaks in the darkroom and didn't see any (no guarantees, but if there are any, they should be easy to fix).

    I also timed the shutter (see below). The lens is a 150mm f6.8 Hekla Doppel Anastigmat (convertible, and the double extension bellows allow full use). The lens is a bit loose on the board. I took out the front cell and cleaned it (its a dialyte type it would seem). The rear also needs cleaning but I didn't do so. From the shutter timing, it seems to me the air cylinder needs some cleaning. Then again, if youre going to use this camera with paper negatives, the slow speeds might be useful.

    It must have been a pretty sophisticated camera for its day (whenever that was, it's pre Zeiss Ikon) - the front has gear driven shift in both axes, front standard locks into the rails, and they're gear driven as well. The ground glass panel is usable and the hood is intact, but the latch needs to be adjusted - it's just missing catching. There are 6 metal plate holders in various states of disrepair. A couple are good, some are a bit rusty, some are missing the springs for the plates. But, with a little cleanup and some shims, all should be usable.

    Asking $65+shipping. Payment via paypal. 3% to APUG.

    I was asked whether I was sure this is postcard format. I'm not. So, I measured (whether in the right place, I'm not sure) the plate holders. Here's what I found.
