    FS: 5x7 Seneca Competitor View Camera

    Need a project? How about a lightweight field camera?
    Currently, this set of bellows has more holes than The Bunny Ranch. This 5x7 is so light weight, it would make for a good backpacking kit if you were motivated to tape up the bellows or replace it.
    I've got a couple of lensboards for it. One of them is a Copal 1, the other is smaller (forgot to measure it earlier) and recessed. I may be able to find a few more, but I can provide 2 at the moment. Front tilt/shift, rear swing and tilt. Includes ground glass and 4 plate holders. 2 of the plate holders have film sheaths. I can even provide 2 spare dark slides.

    I would like to ship this to someone's US address for $150 (or more, if you've got spare cash floating around).

    If I didn't have 4 similar cameras I was currently working on I would pick this up in a heartbeat, almost did but it would just sit for who knows how long since a couple are for a customer and have to be finished in a reasonable amount of time...Nice though!

    BTW: I like the Majestic tripod head, that for sale too?

    sale pending payment

    And no way is that tripod/head combo for sale. Both are Majestic.
    It's a beast to lug around when it's needed away from home or car, but it's hard to get rid of when it's just so useful. With the Korona 7x17, I can even crank it over so it lays on its side for vertical shots... without the fear of it falling over! Not many can prove that. Once I get the new bellows on the 12x20, I'll see if it passes the vertical test again.

    JK about the tripod head, nice one though. I almost won one one eBay a while back but it went too high for me and I don't really need one so strong anyway. My little Bogen 486RC2 works fine for what I shoot. (4X5 Toyo Field)

    Oh, BTW, what the heck is 'spare cash'?

    If your money isn't working for you, you aren't managing it right.... another lesson from me dear old dad.
