    All lenses are scratch, haze, fungus free (optics are perfect) and work perfectly. Some minimal paint wear here and there. All are mounted on boards that fit the Wista system. Camera is in great condition. It sometimes snags on the rail when folding out, but it's not a big deal with some maneuvering.

    Wista DX 4x5 wooden field camera - $550
    Nikon W 135mm f5.6 lens - $240 (doesn't have back cap, unless I find it soon)
    Nikon W 105mm f5.6 lens - $250
    Rodenstock 210mm f5.6 lens - $350
    Schneider 75mm f5.6 lens - $400
    2 Grafmatic backs with 6 septums each (has film in it and work perfectly) - $135 or $70 each
    6x9 back for 120 film - $50
    bag - $30

    Remaining film will be (approximate counting):
    ALL FILM WORKS GREAT AND IS COLD STORED IN FRIDGE.

    Plus-x 125 - 06/1998 - 3 boxes of 25, 1 box of 15 - $65
    Tri-x 400 12/2003 - 1 open box of 40 - $30
    Tri-x 320 04/2010 - 1 unopened box of 50 - $40
    Tri-x 320 04/2010 - 1 open box of 40 - $25
    HP5 400 jun 2011 & may 2009- 1 unopened box of 25, 1 opened of 10 -$25
    TMAX 100 12/2010 - 1 unopened box of 50 - $45
    TMAX 100 10/2008- 1 opened box of 35 - $25
    Efke 25 05/2010 - 1 opened box of 35 - $20

    Prices are OBO and I will keep shipping cheap. Can combine and offer better prices for more film purchased.


    I have realized that 4x5, although a great system with amazing results, just doesn't do amazing for my documentary-style photography at this time. I will go back to large format eventually, but right now need money more than a camera I use once a month and would rather focus on 35mm and 120 formats.

    I'm not wanting to split it up, but I have a feeling I'll have to split at least some things. Preference goes to those who want more than one item.

    I am not a large format guru and certainly not an expert on pricing. If you feel that my prices are too high, make me an offer. My pricing technique was dropping the price about 10-30% of what I paid for it.

    I have photos of individual items, but rest assured when I say that lenses are in perfect condition.

    Do you have to remove the GG to use the 6x9 roll film back?

    no, you don't need to removed the ground glass for this holder. But I do put cardboard between the glass and the holder to avoid injury.
