    Dear All,
    I'm planing to buy an Ernemann large format camera. But.

    First of all the camera is toally ruined by time and dust and need to be renovated. I would like to make it by my own hands, and before i do anything, would like to ask here a few things.
    I'm new here at APUG but i'm in analog photography since a few years. Had built thing and also repaired smaller equipment like my Bessa R3a.
    But this is a bigger nut then just tighten a screw.

    I attached 4 pictures, cannot give better because i don't have neighter.

    I can buy it from the internet for around 35$ and would like to know, Is it possible to repair it?
    If yes, what kind of Ernemann is it exactly, i couldn't figure out

    Thank you for the help,
    Bandi

    Welcome to APUG Bandi.

    It's an Ernemann Klpapp, which has a large focal plane shutter,. It looks like it'll need an awful lot of restoration and you'll have difficulty finding some of the parts easily. A lens should be less difficult as it probably had a Tessar.

    Not the ideal large format camera project to start off with, although it's the kind of challenge I enjoy. On a more practical side the camera's lack of movements will make it less useful in the long run.

    Dear Ian,

    Thank you for the quick answer. For me is also the challenge, what gives a push to make it.
    The comfortability is not a question. I was walking one week long around Prague with a Sinar Norma just because I wanted to show, it is possible to use a Cardan camera as a Field one

    Do you think maybe, if i can't find a small but necessary part for resoration, then i can find somewhere somebody who can craft or customly make it?
    Or should i search another piece of "junk" to renovate?
    The main point for me in this camera is the inbuilt shutter, nothing else. Maybe You know another brand who have similar kind of camera?

    Thanks,
    Bandi

    As you have a Sinar then you're aware of limitations so maybe go for the Ernemann but without to high expectations, some parts missing paneles etc you can make, the shutters trickier but not too hard to replace the curtains, the finders missing. Perhaps a longer term project.

    There's plenty of other FP shutter 9x12 cameras in Europe as Goerz, Zeiss and a few others made them or there's the SLR option Mentor being an example. Usually cameras that need slight restoration are relatively inexpensive.

    I'd buy that Ernemann as a learning project, if you're lucky it can be restored if not you've the knowledge to move on to other restorations.

    Ian
