    Kodak 8x10 camera: good deal???

    I found a Kodak 8x10 Master Camera with a 14" Kodak Commercial Ektar Lens for $799. Everything looks in good condition.

    Is that a good price?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Very Good! KMV is a fine camera machined from real metal---like a Technika on steroids. The 14" Commercial Ektar alone is worth $400

    Buy it! I paid over 1000 for the camera with no lens and the bellows after three years of use needs replacement. The camera is really easy to use and very sturdy. You can't go wrong with it.

    I have seen KMVs go for about $700 to $1000 at various times on Ebay over the years. If it is in good shape you are certainly getting a bargain with the lens.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I got the camera, lens, reducing back (4x5), tripod, and one holder for $949.00.

    I think I did pretty good!

    I'm going to run a sheet of film through it this weekend.

    Can't wait!
