FS: Graflex 6X9 Century Graphic w/ 2 backs and Graftar lens
here's a chance to get a nice little view camera kit. Everything works well, but I'm simply not using it enough to justify using it. And having decided to stick with LF(4x5,5x8 and 8x10) for my primary photography, this needs a new home.
1. Century Graphic body(top viewfinder and side rangefinder have been removed, and body patched). Comes w/ red Domke wrap.
2. Graflex "Graftar" lens. Not the "pick of the litter", but actually surprisingly sharp. And this little lens has LOTS of aperture blades, so a nice out-of-focus rendering to it IMO). Comes w/ lens synch cable<not pictured>(bi-post to household
3. (1) 6x7 Graflex lever-wind back(RH10) *120 film only* w/ pouch
4. (1) 6X9 Graflex "23" knob-winde back *120 only* w/ pouch ***seems to have a slight light-leak on the back*** I have found that covering the back/camera and keeping it out of direct sunlight helps to mitigate any leaking issues. Please see selected frame(drum scan, it has arrows on it pointing to issues) to see what I'm referring to)
Lens seems to be somewhat accurate, slower speeds are a bit off to my ear, but middle/upper speeds are correct according to my film. I've included a few small-rez drum scans of some recent frames taken on Provia(slide film). They're in the gallery, along with some higher-res crops out of the middle areas of the same frames.
