    6x9 format on 120 or 220
    This camera fitted with a Schneider Kreuznach Super Angulon 4.7cm f5.6 lens in Copal shutter.
    Shutter speeds B through to 1/500. All working. (No T setting)
    (View is approximately equivalent to 21mm lens on a 135 camera)
    Camera is fitted with a moving lens mount to provide movements. With the very wide angle of
    view this is necessary to compensate for converging verticals etc. The viewfinder mount is linked
    to the movements with an angle scale.
    Wind on is fitted with a lock to permit double exposure.
    Fitted bubble level on top plate.

    Used but in good condition. Some small chips to the black paintwork.

    This model takes excellent pictures without recourse to a centre filter.
    (Centre filters are available if you feel the need for one.)

    The camera is fitted with a frame type viewfinder.

    Mods:
    Nylon handstrap.
    Braided metal shutter release with locking plunger. Reason: The original was too stiff & kept coming loose.
    Original viewfinder replaced with Voigtlander 21mm type. Reason: The Voigtlander finder is optically far superior.

    Extras:
    52mm Y2 filter
    Voigtlander short lens hood and metal lens cap.


    Price: £1800 GBP.
    Carriage: I am happy to post internationally via UPS - if you are interested I will get a quote for your location.
    Payment: Either Paypal or international Bank Transfer.

    Reason for sale: I have bought a hand held 5x4, so this is now surplus to requirements.

    A Plaubel classified as "surplus"? You're probably right, but still - it hurts :wink:

    Want to trade it for a "surplus" Pentax 67 with extras??
    (I don't have the cash for the Paubel)

    Swapped for a very nice early whole plate camera.
