    WTB: 5x7 field camera, preferably within EU

    I discovered that I need a 5x7inch (or13x18cm) folding field camera that would accept modern double film holders. I don't need anything shiny or with a good-sounding name, just some light-tight device to carry along and take pictures. I'd like to buy something light like the Nagaoka or Ikeda cameras, but even an old prophet like Ansco, Korona or Kodak 2D might do the trick. I intend this camera mostly for landscapes and other -scapes but at least some front rise/fall and tilts are reqired, front swing would be nice as well.

    I am on a sort of tight budget, I was looking to spend something under 500EUR but will consider spending (a bit) more if you have something interesting to offer. Accessories like 4x5 reduction backs are wellcomed.

    I prefer the camera to be in good shape, though the need of minor DIY repairs is OK as well.

    Due to shipping costs and import taxes I'd very much prefer to buy within European Union, but...

    Thank you for your offers!

    PS: A whole plate camera would do as well, I could just make/find a 5x7 back for it.

    Nothing within the borders of the EU?
    (for the sake of portability I could be interested even in 4x5 - Speed Graphic, M.P.P. Microtechnical and similar)

    What about this one ? The price is excellent, the minor faults easy to rectify, it has tilt and you can use a bit of rear swing.

    If I had spare cash I'd buy it to restore for my own use.
