    Selling back the 4x5 gear I bought here on this forum late last year. All in the same condition I bought it in. I only used it a few times (probably set it up about 8 times) as I realized I my other cameras suited my purposes better. So I'm selling this to put some more money in my 8x10 set up.

    Included:
    Wista Zone VI body
    Caltar HR (Topcor) 210/5.6
    Rodenstock Ysarex 135/4.5 (later multi-coated version, Tessar design.
    I will include a few film holders (might have to ship them separately as they are not with me currently). All modern plastic units.
    LowePro backpack in great condition. I think there is a yellow filter on one of the lenses as well as a some cable releases, dark cloth and changing bag that will also be included.

    Camera body is in used but solid condition. No light leaks.
    Both lenses have perfect glass and shutters fire well.
    (The Rodenstock's shutter is slow on the slower speeds, but I never used them.)

    Purchase price here was $1000. I'm asking $900 plus shipping & fees. I'm dropping the price since I'd like to hold on to a few film holders for my 4x5 pinhole and I did use the camera a few times.

    Ah Collin :smile: She has done well for me and I didn't mind the weight. I hate to part with it but other priorities are winning right now. That 8x10 is begging for some glass. I have a feeling I will regret this :wink:

    Nice camera. I know because I own one as well, as the original purchaser through Zone VI. It's not really very heavy. My original Zone VI camera bag handled all the needed paraphenalia (including the camera) and wasn't much bigger than a 35mm shoulder bag. I carried it with me throughout the backcountry of northern Nevada for three years without a single shoulder surgery.

    Can't seem to find a way to bump this thread. It says I'm allowed at the top but I don't have the option to do it. So I'm just gonna reply and hope someone sees it.

    Ken, yes it is in fact a relatively light set up which is refreshing with LF :smile:

    Would you consider splitting the Ysarex out on its own?

    I'd prefer to keep the kit together for now. If I'm not having any luck in a week or so selling the kit I might be willing to sell separately.

    By any chance could you weigh it? I'm looking for something more hikeable than my monorail.

    Sorry for a late reply, I've been traveling without my laptop. I have to see if I can find a scale to see the actual weight of everything and then the camera itself. I know the camera is actually surprisingly light for what it is. But the entire pack with lenses and film holders tends to add pounds. I'll look into it in more detail later today or tomorrow.

    The camera itself weighs 3lbs 4oz. Hope that answers your question :smile:

    It will cost extra but if you're willing to cover it I will ship internationally.

    Hi all!

    I have sat on this for way too long and I'm tired of traveling around with the kit. So I'm willing to split it all up if there is interest. PM me with reasonable offers on the body, lenses and pack if interested. I need the cable releases and film holders for my 8x10 and pinholes.

    Thanks!
