    FS - Whole Plate Eastman #1

    FS - Whole Plate Eastman #1






    This is an Eastman View #1 whole plate camera. I've been using it indoors for a few months but there are issues with it. Takes lens boards of approx 4.75" square. With included extension rail, the max length is about 26".

    Known issues: I've been using this for a while indoors but not fully extended with no problem. I extended it just now and did the 'flashlight test' and there are pin holes, so I've lowered the price. I was talking to DIYBellows before he left the country for a few months, but didn't have time to get the bellows kit for this. The price was around $85, I believe.

    The handle was worn and unreliable, so I removed it. There is a ground glass clip missing (see photo). The front rise works sometimes and not other times. It needs to be taken apart so the cross bar can be re-set. Probably the camera body should also be rolled off, rails cleaned, and re-set. There is a piece of the side rail missing (see photo). I replaced this with a 1/8" x 1/8" piece of wood and glued it in. The local hardware store couldn't come up with nails or screws suitable to affix the wood in a more permanent fashion and the glue didn't hold when the full camera weight was pushed against it. This is a simple fix if you have some small screws or tacks that can go in there. Or, have more sense than I do, and just roll the rear of the camera off that spot when you stress it...





    Price: $175, USPS money order. Shipping will probably be $15-18. Paypal +4% of entire amount. Trades/offers also considered.
