    Trusty Korona 8"X10"...
    This is a great user camera in average condition.
    Bellows extension is 15", with an extension board (not included) there's probably another 5" or so. The bellows are light tight, inside corners have been painted with rubber cement as shown in photo.
    Rear standard is pretty tight, not like a minty Wisner but not floppy either.
    Rear movements (tilt and swing) work fine.
    Front movement (rise and fall) are smooth.
    Ground glass is good.
    Wooden base has a crack (as shown in photo) which has been filled with wood epoxy, it's now solid and mounts easily (as shown in photos).
    More photos /hi res photos available
    All in all a nice basic 8"X10"

    Asking $350 including shipping in Con US.
    I'm happy to ship elsewhere but it'll cost a bit.

    Looks like a nice camera but only 15" bellows extension?
    It would seem that a 360mm lens could focus no closer than infinity.
    How difficult would it be to come by an extension board?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I see extensions on Fleabay from time to time but never bought one, just haven't needed it. But yes, it would be a nice addition.
