    FS: Wista and Toyo Field Cameras

    This sale is part of a large camera collection. This post has only the field cameras. I will post other items, including monorail cameras, Fujinar, Fujinon, Schneider and Nikkor lenses, Mamiya RB and Press cameras, roll film holders for 4x5 and 6x9 cameras and other LF and MF accessories in the next few days.

    Since these are all similar cameras, please make sure to write the item number and description in your message. PMs sometimes go astray, so it is best to send me an email through the forum, which can be accessed by clicking on my user id and then on "Send an email".

    These camera are all used, and show scuffs, a bit of paint loss, etc. The bellows on all the Wista cameras have been patched. Replacement bellows are readily available on eBay, and cost between $70 to $100.
    1. Wista 45D_A
    This camera is in fair condition cosmetically. Mechanically it is in excellent condition. All movements are smooth and lock down properly. There is no strap. $550, including EMS shipping and Paypal fees.

    2. Wista 45D_B
    This camera is in decent condition cosmetically. Mechanically it is in good condition. All movements are smooth and lock down properly. There is no viewing hood. $500, including EMS shipping and Paypal fees.

    3. Wista 45D_C
    This camera is in decent condition cosmetically. The woodgrain covering needs some contact cement. Mechanically it is in good condition. All movements are smooth and lock down properly. $500, including EMS shipping and Paypal fees.

    5. Wista 45 RF
    This camera is in good condition cosmetically. Mechanically it is in very good condition. All movements are smooth and lock down properly. There is some resistance when the front standard is pulled out from the camera initially - it does not align properly with the rail, and must be pressed down to ensure that it rides on the rails. My guess is that something needs to be tightened. There is no viewing hood. $750, including EMS shipping and Paypal fees.

    6. Wista 45 N
    This one needs some TLC. The bellows definitely need replacement. The infinity stops seem to be locked on the rails, and I can't get them to move, though the locking knobs seem to work. The levers for locking the rails are broken. The locks themselves are fine, though. Movements are a bit rough, that I think just needs some lubrication. $300, including EMS shipping and Paypal fees.

    7. Toyo Metal Field Half Plate
    This is in excellent condition. The bellows is light tight, and movements are very smooth and lock down properly. The back is removable, and is a half-plate (4 3/4" x 6 1/2"). It can be replaced by 5x7, 4x5 and a 6x9 sliding back. It is very light ~2kgs. $500, including EMS shipping and Paypal fees.

    Again, email through the forum is best.

    Thanks for looking.

    I have taken photos with each of the Wista cameras, and all of them have light tight bellows. I have been using my own Wista with a patched bellows ever since I bought it three years ago, and I don't think I'll need to replace it any time soon.

    some of the photographs are unable to be viewed on your picasa site
    I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).
