First large format camera purchase - advise needed please.
It's my first post on that large format forum so first of all greetings to all of you ! :)
Secondary , I need your help. I'm considering purchase of my first Large Format camera and I need your advice about model I,m going to buy, lenses etc . as well as price I was offered for a lot .
So I was offered :
~ HORSEMAN 970 , condition 7/10 due to very minor damage on the back (not affecting mechanical performance of the camera and generally not really visible), full mechanical working order .
two lenses :
~ HORSEMAN TOKYO KOGAKU PS 1:3.5 F = 10.5 cm condition : 8/10 (due to some dust - nothing serious , just my aesthetic feeling :) )
~ HORSEMAN TOKYO KOGAKU PW 1:5.6 F = 6.5 cm condition : 9/10 if not 10/10 ( mint ? hidden in the closet , never used ? :) )
~ HORSEMAN 970 120 film back condition 7/10 ( mechanically fine , just some minor cosmetic damage not affecting anything )
and some extras : Horseman's carrying case and Horseman's timer.
Price asked is 320 British pounds (or 514 US Dollars if u wish to convert )
I have no Idea is it a fair price and I don't want to make a mistake and pay more than it;s worth , therefore i need your help and advise on that one please...
