These are available for trade as well. Looking for a stout tripod that will hold a 4x5 for my daughter, or maybe an 8" or longer focal length lens for her. Dont forget, I also have good quality enlarging lenses for sale or trade.
I'm looking for something over 200mm and functional shutter. It doesn't have to be pretty, just as long as it works and doesn't frustrate a teenage kid (tho she is a determined person). For price range, I'm hoping to barter for something, I'm out of cash(just dropped 2K on the wifes car, rebuilt transmission).
I've got a Gundlach Rapid Convertible (10/17/23") with a flange and shutter. It's labelled as a whole plate 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 but covers up to 8x10 at the combined 10" focal length. The Autex shutter seems to work fine. It actually says it is a Wollensak shutter under the scale. It requires a ball and tube to fire. I have a tube for it but not the ball. You can also fire by hand of course. Not sure if a normal cable release would work.
Anyway, I'd let that go for $85 but I don't really need any MF stuff.
North America just north of that sharp right turn North America makes on the Atlantic coast.
You hit my weakness for Kodaks, too bad the Tourist is gone and I really don't want to play rewind the film just to use the Duaflex. Is there a chance that someone could squeeze 120 into that thing? or is that a dream?
"Would you like it if someone that painted in oils told you that you were not making portraits because you were using a camera?"
"Shouldn't it be more about the joy of producing and viewing the photo than what you paid for the camera?"
Sorry, I tried to squeeze a roll of 120 into it, just wont work. Kodak wanted people to buy their film and noone elses. I've put several rolls of film through the beauty, and it never ceases to amaze me with its simplicity, and decent quality of negatives.
