    Hi,

    I'm looking for a LF beginner camera (or a kit), size 4x5 or larger (preferrably 5x7 with a 4x5 reducing back), to be used mainly for wet plate, so an old beater is OK, as long as it's usable (non-leaking bellows, etc.).

    I'm in EU (Croatia) and can pay via PayPal.

    I also hope to find something with a bit more reasonable shipping cost than the $500 shipping from USA to Croatia I was quoted on LF forum a few days ago...
    Unfortunately, I had to pass on that offer :sad:

    Vick, I'd prefer an older type wooden camera, with a larger lens board. Yours looks nice, but it's not what I'm looking for...
    Thanks anyway,
    Denis

    Hi Denis,

    I've got a Calumet WoodField XM, it's like a Tachihara that I'm trying to sell right now. It takes the standard Technika lens boards. Is this too new?
