    Graflex RB Series D

    I picked up another beater Graflex. This one is an RB series D 3 1/4 x 4 1/4. The shutter was jammed, the mirror stuck shut, lens dirty and cloudy. I took it almost completely apart, managed to get the shutter working, the mirror works the way it should and I think the lens is in pretty good shape. It is a CZJ Tessar 150mm 4.5 lens. I will try and get some shots with it this week. I wanted the RB so that I could use it for portraits. I managed to get my 3x4 Auto-Graflex working. I am happy with it. Next project will be a 4x5 speed if I can find one at the right price. These old cameras rock!

    I agree. I've been repairing and modifying several lately. They're wonderful.
