    Galli Garage Sale! Compact Graflex! Antique Bokeh! #5


    I have seven pictures and they will mostly tell the story, but it'll take two posts.


    This is a 100 year old Compact Graflex Camera.


    The format is 3 1/2 X 5 1/2. I do not have any sheet film holders for that. What came with the camera is a roll film back that takes type 52 rolls, and a film pack adapter back. I tried to roll some 5" film but that failed. What I thought would be sweet would be to convert the film pack adapter to a collodion plate back. Very easily done I think.

    3 more photos for you.


    This camera is in superb shape. It has lived in it's velvet lined case for many many years.


    It works perfectly at all of it's speeds. Mirror is clean and sharp. Lens is perfect! It is a 5X7 Bausch & Lomb Tessar 1C.


    Never seen in this condition. $435 seems right. If not, I'll be pleased to discuss what you think it is worth. Shipping will be about $20 I think. USA shipping.

    This is still available. If converted to take 4X5 holders with a Graflex back, this would make a gorgeous panoramic 3 1/4 X 5 format! Make Offers.
