WTB: 4x5" Press Camera w/ RF - B&J Press, Tower Press, Busch Pressman... $125-$225
Increasing the price range a bit.
Looking for one of the following 4x5" cameras:
Burke & James Press
Busch Pressman D
Rangefinder (Kalart preferred, but open)
Rotating back with ground glass & spring back
Bellows in perfectly functional shape
I have some stuff to trade if you're interested, namely:
Burke & James Orbit, 4x5" Monorail - perfect condition
Kodak 2D 8x10 View Camera - very good condition, good bellows
215mm f/6.3 Orbit in Copal 1 - Caltar copy(?), covers 5x7"
8-1/4" f/4.5 Wollensak Velostigmat in Betax 4 - good shape, shutter inaccurate
I'll pay a $25 finders fee to whomever can locate me a dream camera, and resulting in a satisfactory sale. Perhaps this will incentivize someone to ask their friends, family and neighbors.
Mind you, the $225 price would be for a camera with an above average lens (not a 127mm or 135mm Ektar, Raptar, etc.) and the whole shooting match in great condition.
$125 would be for a good condition camera w/o lens, $150-$175 for something with an Ektar and the like.
OFFICIALLY CONSIDERING CROWN GRAPHICS NOW
Near mint Crown Graflex Special, 135 Schneider (perfect glass) , ground glass back, split image finder, peep finder, hand strap and many older type film holders. Will ship with $225. Like for someone to get to use it. 478 788-2794 in Georgia.

Thanks, will call shortly.
But, can anyone tell me if the specials always had the top-mounted RF or was there overlap with the ≤1955 Kalart?
