    Polaroid 110b Conversion - 4x5 Rangefinder w/Rodenstock Lens (Lower Price)

    Folks -
    I'm selling a Polaroid 110b conversion camera - essentially a 4x5 Leica (not a bad analogy considering the flawless Rodenstock lens on this one).
    It's been converted to have a ground glass back and take regular 4x5 film holders. Excellent condition - paint unchipped, lens is flawless and dust/grease free. One nice design element is that the lens cap is a built-in pinhole, so you can make LF pinhole photographs, too.

    Included is 2 film holders, an original Polaroid neutral-density filter, a CD with instructions on adjusting the rangefinder (if the need arises in future), original camera instruction manual and it all comes with an original (quite good condition) spiffy leather case.
    The rangefinder is accurate and bright & clear - the camera is overall in marvellous condition. I can also include an unopened (and expired but always refridgerated) box of Ilford FP4+ so you basically are ready to go.

    I'm asking $800 plus shipping for this. Cheque, bank draft or money order GREATLY preferred. I'd be happy to answer any questions - please PM me or email at colin (dot) corneau at gee mail, dot com.

    I have this exact setup and paid about that price but with no holders, film or case. It's practically a 4x5 point and shoot. I use it successfully with some roll film backs too. Lens is an awesome performer. Good luck with the sale.

    Exactly jbrubaker. I was wondering who did the conversion as well, that information would certainly effect what I'd be willing to pay for the camera.

    I am told, based on the photos I've provided, that this particular model is from Alpenhause Kamera Werke, Santa Paula, California.

    All I know is that it's in mint shape. I hope that helps.

    Steve at Alpenhause makes excellent Polaroid conversions, and he goes to great lengths to ensure that the rangefinder is perfectly aligned.
    Good price for such a fine camera.

    Kinda like selling a hot rod without a pic under the hood.
    The camera is the most incidental element of photography.

    I trust this should answer any questions about the back -- it takes standard 4x5 film holders, and is as mint as the rest of the camera.

    For anyone going to Photostock this week, I'll be there with it.
