Lenses in my find of the day
I met a friend of mine this morning because he said he had some darkroom equipment that he wanted to get rid of. There were many items in boxes including:
Kodak Photo Paper (old and likely not usable)
Large Kodak 8x10 grey cards
several tanks for 4x5 sheet film development
plastic and stainless tanks and reels
many enlarger bulbs
a print drying machine
various negative carriers
three enlarging lenses
I snapped some pictures with my phone in hopes that this wonderful community might be able to help me identify some items.
I already enlarging lenses for 35mm, medium format, and 4x5. I already have a 35mm negative carrier.
The Nikkor 50mm 2.8 enlarging lens:2013-05-07 10.16.28 HDR.jpg 2013-05-07 10.22.25.jpg This is definitely of solid metal construction and is better in quality than the one I currently own (I think).
The 80mm lens for medium format: 2013-05-07 10.16.02 HDR.jpg This one feels light in my hands and I already have an EL-Nikkor 80mm, so I may decide to sell this.
The 138mm lens for large format: 2013-05-07 10.14.33 HDR.jpg I know very little about this except that there seem to be 15 or more aperture blades. Any info would be appreciated.
Also, there was some Kodak Pan-X Professional in 120 rolls that expired in 1982. I'm not holding my breath on this one, but when I get a camera that will take it, I'll let you know;-)
Thanks to all for any info you might be able to offer about the identity or value of these items!
