    FS: Wista 45SP 4x5 Camera

    I'm selling my Wista 45PS 4x5 folding field camera. The camera is in great shape and functions as new. All movements are nice and smooth, not loose at all. All knobs lock tight. There are signs of wear on the outside of the camera. Scratch marks, but nothing major, just general use, and nothing that would affect the functionality obvioulsly. The factory ground glass has been replaced with a Satin Snow ground glass by me a few years ago. The protective glass with gridlines behind the Satin Snow is original and some of the lines are chipping. This would be easy to replace, or get rid of. I have etch marks drawn on the GG for 6x9 roll film backs. All light seals are in great condition. The bellows have a little buckle in places but function as they should are light tight. I also have the folding focusing hood/ground glass cover. It is in fine shape, except that one of the pins that holds the cover on the back has broken off (see the pics, it's highlighted in red). You can still attach the cover to the back, but barely. The buyer, if handy may be able to fix this, or could easily take it to a machinist and have the pin replaced. I simply just did not use this ground cover after it broke. So overall I'd rate the camera (minus GG cover) in 8.5/10 condition. With GG cover factored in, 8/10 condition. Look at the pics I've attached.

    I looked on B&H and these are selling new for $2650. I'm asking $2000 plus shipping.

    If you have any questions feel free to PM me. Or, if interested, PM me.

    BTW.. In the one photo I have mounted my Fujinon 135/5.6 on the camera, just for show. This lens is NOT included with the camera, but is for sale. I'm offering it for sale to the buyer of the camera before I place it for sale on APUG. I'm also doing the same with 3 4x5 film holders, and a "slosher" processing tray.

    I'm interested in the film holders if you're selling separately.
