    4x5 entry...

    I finally got over there to look at things. There are two Omega's, a Lentar, a Beseler 67c, a Majestic tripod, a Speed Graphic body for parts, and a fully functioning Speed Graphic.

    He's also selling me all of his darkroom books, tanks, trays, bottles, negative holders, a collection of light meters, safe lights, drum dryer, and a bunch if other stuff.

    The thing that sounded like a Jobo is actually a Uniroller, but I haven't a clue what it's for.

    The Speed Graphic comes with a wooden case, 7 double sided film holders, and two flashes. We tripped the shutter and the thing moved back and forth on the tracks smoothly. He said he last used it about 4 years ago. The ground glass doesn't look scratched, but I never could figure out how to see through it.

    So here are some photos. Is all this worth $385?

    And the crown jewel of the bunch...

    I thought I had gotten pics of the back but I didn't. It has a part that flips out to see the glass. Then you slide the film holder between the back and the body, and then slide it out when you're done.

    Yes, that's worth it. Really, really. I would be tempted to ask you for one of the 4x5 enlargers if you don't need two and you were closer. YES. GO GET IT.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I'm not against shipping... I can't keep all this stuff, I don't have that much room!

    Figure out what you'd want to keep first, then PM me when you do.

    Why is there SO MUCH good stuff in Texas? Can't some of it be in Iowa for a change?

    I'll go pick it all up on Monday when I get back from Louisiana, and let y'all know what all is there. Seriously, it's a garage FULL of stuff, all of which was very well kept.

    One of the D2 enlargers should have multiple condenser sets for different sized negatives (inside the silver cylindrical part). Realistically, the 4x5 condenser (fills the whole silver cylinder) can be used for any size neg, but the enlarging time is longer. That one is either a DII or a D2. The second image confuses me. The D2V has a door that opens where you can adjust the condenser for different formats rather than switching out condensers. The drawer on the second enlarger looks more like a filter drawer.

    The distortion correction device is pretty rare and worth around a $100 by itself. The Majestic tripod and head is also worth in the $100 range.



    BTW - don't worry about the cost of film too much. You'll be a lot more particular about what you shoot and not shoot nearly as many frames.
