Assorted 9x12 German plate cameras
I have a box full of plate cameras from the PHSNE warehouse that I am trying to find a home for. I have not shot with any of these nor has there been any extensive checking and cleaning. I do stand behind them, however and will be happy to refund purchase price on any that disappoint for cause.
2. An Zeiss Volta 9x12 Plate camera, the modest end of a long line of cameras that Zeiss continued after taking over ICA in the 20's. It has an f 6.3 Novar in an ICA shutter that works, but again, no claim to accurate timing. This one comes with two Zeiss plate holders and a GG back. The front standard slides out until a small catch is supposed to stop it on a sliding focus plate- this needs some fiddling but it should be good as new with a bit of care. I haven't fiddled with it. $40 shipped
3. A Zeiss Ikon Sirene 9x12 plate camera with the same Novar combination as the last item, but in a Derval Shutter. Again, it works butů Ground glass but no holders. This one takes a very thin flanged plate holder. Focus on this does not involve a knurled wheel, simply pulling the standard out to specified points on the bed. $30 shipped
