    Wista 4x5 with lens and more!

    I'm helping a friend sale his kit. I can tell you the camera is a really nice one since it was in my closet for many years! He got hitched and now he move out his toys.
    For sale.
    A Wista 4 x 5 with a 135mm Nikkor lens, six film holders, black/red darkcloth, Spare lens board, and a Rodenstock loupe.
    The camera is super clean! Camera Bellow is in fine shape. No cracks, tears or light leaks. Brass fittings are clean. The lens is clean. No fungus or scratches. The shutter fires correctly. The dark cloth and loupe are in excellent shape. Film holders are in good shape.
    $600 gets it all. All you need is a tripod, time and film to take this baby out for some fun!
    I just got married and don't have the time for large format, and still have to pay for the upcoming honeymoon.USD
    Price : 600.00

    Wife said, "Do you need this camera?"
    I said, "Do you need this dog?"
    "Well," she said, "how about that camera?
    "How about that dog?" I replied.
    "How long is this going to go on?" she asked.
    "You've got six dogs," I replied. "Do the math."

    When you've been married more than 30 years, you can (sometimes) get away with things like that!

    I'd love to replace my slightly battered, heavily used and abused Wista

    But I think the wife might noticed if it suddenly looked Mint

    I've mentioned this camera to someone on another (UK) forum.

    It's not too hard to get a good deal on a wife, but it's damn difficult to get this good a deal on a 4x5 outfit. Happily for me ( I married the right woman ) if I didn't already have a similar kit, she'd help write the check.

    I was just informed that the camera was sold a week ago. Now, he's sorry for letting it go.
    But to keep you all interested I have another friend who is planning to sell her mint condition Wisner 4x5 Expedition camera soon.
    Seems like many of my so-call friends :-) are dumping their gear for digital. The friend above just bought a Nikon D3 and fisheye lens.
    Once I know for sure and her asking price I'll let you know.
    I can say that this camera was probably used maybe three times before the owner had surgery and needed to lighten her carrying load.
    Sorry that I didn't know sooner about the Wista but I also just found out myself.
