    I need an 8x10 BEATER

    Sorry, I should've posted this in the WTB section...

    I need a moth-eaten, beat-up, rattletrap 8x10 or larger for evaluating focal lengths and image circles for my larger format Wollaston lenses. Obviously, cheap is the byword.

    I'm finding that the wet plate and alternative photo folks are drawn to the historic nature of my lenses, but I need a test bed in 8x10 size.

    For those of you who haven't heard of Wollaston lenses, take a look:

    I've got a Gundlach tailboard camera with intact bellows and 8x10 and 5x7 backs. It needs some TLC (the front standard is currently off the baseboard). PM me for more info if you're interested.

    Hi, I have a calumet C1 and a Cambo unit that are both collecting dust. The Calumet has a crack in the ground glass but has its own rails, the cambo is a mono rail and the GG is good. Bellows and movements on both seem fine. Let me know if either of these sound interesting, the calumet as is would be about $350... the Cambo a little more but not much... Let me know and I will snap some pics for you if interested. Thanks Brian

    I have a couple of Eastman 2-Ds in 8x10 and a Eastman View #1 in whole plate. The former I wouldn't call beaters by any stretch of the imagination (I'd be looking for somewhere around $300 for either one) and the latter, while not a beater isn't exactly a thing of beauty either and would go quite a bit cheaper (about $175 I think).
