Do you have a Wollensak Verito soft focus lens in shutter or barrel?(open to diff focal lengths as long as it covers 8X10) Is it in EX or better condition? Would you like to own a EX condition Toyo 45A with new bellows? Do you have cash to add to the deal?
If you answered yes to all the questions above and are interested in a trade please send me a PM or email with your questions. I have a whole slew of photographs of my camera already taken as I was thinking of selling it once before. I am getting interested in larger format photography and have a Kodak 2D 8X10 camera and would love to have a Verito soft focus to compliment the camera. I do already have a nice Petzval on the way from Jim Galli but having an all around soft focus lens would be nice as well. Depending on the condition of your lens I would require between $300-400 cash, the amount of cash also depends on if the Verito is in a shutter as well; which would be preferable but not required as I do have a Packard shutter I could use in it's place. I recently picked up a Graflex Crown Graphic that is sufficient for my needs as a field camera, although not as nice of course.
Please note that you will receive the lens boards in the photo and if needed several 4X5 film holders but would prefer to keep the film holders if possible. The bellows were replaced with OEM bellows from Toyo a few months ago and have only been used a handful of times.
Lens boards included are all OEM and in EX or better condition, one was a Copal 0 that has been ground out to a Copal 1 with a dremel tool but is not sloppy, it looks almost factory done.
