    Galvin 6x9 view camera, flat and recessed boards, horseman back

    I won't to into all the details of the Galvin when they can be found here. Mine is a little different than the one he reviews, so look at my images if you have questions. Every one of these seemed to be a little different. I have about 20 images of the camera that can be found on flickr here. If you want to shoot 6x9 with movements in the field, it would hard to come up with a better solution. A full kit with lenses etc. weighs far less than my beloved Hasselblad. The the camera is in pretty much perfect condition. The flat board is actually made by Grimes and it in the same condition. The very hard to find recessed board is pretty beat up, but it is a lens board. A coat of paint will clean it up if you are so inclined. The back is a 6x9 Horseman back that seems like it was used a fair amount, but seems to be perfect. If I were keeping it I'd replace the seals, but I suspect that really won't be needed for a few more years....about a 10 minute job for this back once the materials are in hand. That said, I have not used the back. I'd prefer to sell this as a set and I won't break it up until the camera sells. The kit is $525 plus shipping and Paypal fees if you use Paypal.

    Well, no one has made an offer yet and I am not in a huge hurry. I'm also throwing in a Technika to Galvin conversion board. I made it, but never made the clips. It is a bit of a hack job, but it should work fine. Also, the flat board is drilled for Copal 0 and the recessed something smaller ( 00? )

    I could also be talked into a trade for a Fuji rangefinder, Olympus OM stuff or Leica stuff.
