    edit: Camera body alone, without lens and shutter. I believe these cameras can be converted to pack film, or 4x5 holder. This camera looks to be in good shape with nice bellows and rangefinder. Let me know if any questions.

    $50 plus postage. Paypal accepted.

    The lens and shutter on these are worth more than that by themselves. Even if you don't want the camera body they will work extremely well on a 4x5, and afford nearly full range of movements. I've even used a 110a for paper negatives without mods.

    Would love to see any sites/examples of the Polaroid 110 lens/shutter adapted to a different body. If you have any in mind please let me know.

    This would be great fun for camera experimenters. Has rangefinder focusing, as well as scale. Film gate is about 3x4 inches, but could be enlarged. Pressure plate is about 1/4" larger in both dimensions. You can tape film or paper in the film gate to experiment.

    Price reduced to $39!

    I have one mounted on a 4x4 lensboard and it's my go to lens for landscapes with my 4x5 Calumet cc-400 view camera. BTW, it's a Rodenstock 127mm Ysarex lens on a Prontor SVS shutter.

    sorry, PM retracted. I missed the edit that the camera has no lens.

    Hmm... didn't catch the edit, would still make a dandy pinhole camera for the right price.
