    Combining my previous post for the 6x9 back.

    Up for sale is a Wista SP camera; everything works smoothly and perfectly, as it should.
    This is the Wista with Micro-swing, which is controlled by the two knobs at centre of the rear standard.

    Bellows have a few creases near the front, but are light-tight; I checked with a flashlight.
    GG cover (plain glass) has yellow tape residue, but this does not get in the way of working with the camera.
    There are numerous small scratches in the body, and the camera needs regular cleaning to get it spotless, but it's decent right now.
    The once-perfect black surface has spots of grey and other shades that I can't quite remove.

    This is a compact and versatile camera that can handle almost every demand placed upon it. Portraits, architecture, landscape...anything.

    Overall, a very fine camera in great working condition; unfortunately, it looks like Ernest Borgnine, but hey, he did win an Oscar.
    Camera includes a Wista-brand Copal 0 lens board.

    The 6x9 back is the one listed here: http://www.largeformatphotography.i...6x9-Sliding-Back-Complete&highlight=wista+6x9

    God condition, works perfectly, includes a roll of Acros or Ektar.

    Because of cosmetics, I am offering the Wista SP for $625 plus shipping.
    The 6x9 back is $175 plus shipping.
    Buy both for $750, and I will include shipping to Canada/USA, and give overseas 30% off shipping.
    Preference given to anyone who wants both camera and sliding back.

    Thanks

    I can attest that the Wista is a great camera, I have a VX and just picked up a sliding back. The sliding back is a slick piece of gear and I find that it is the easiest way to shot 120 with a view camera. Although you can use graphic backs with a few modifications, the Wista backs are the best.
