Ive got an OLD 8x10 studio camera...help identify?
So I run a digital studio in Orange Park FL, and when we acquired the buisness 6 years ago, it came with all interior fixings. In the attic was an antique 8x10 large format camera... it has a few markings, and appears to be in decent condition.
From what I can discern, it is a Wollensak-Rochester No.6 ? Does this sound correct? It also has a "beach multi-focal series A " lens on it with the inscription
"beach multi-focal series a focus 16" no 487 made by wollensak-rochester usa pat appl'd"
the aperature appears to still work, with the action being very smooth.
the stops are labeled 6,7,8,9,10,11 and 11.7
overall the whole camera is in pretty good condition. can I still use this camera? the rear slide mechanism still works but there is definatley something missing...
how much is something like this worth? I can post pictures if anyone is interested.. thanks for your time... -b
