Why buy just one old heavy camera that needs some work, when you can buy an ENTIRE FORMAT EXPERIENCE? I’m ditching my 3-1/4” x 4-1/4” photo gear, and it’s all right here in a box. I shoot everything from half-frame 35mm up to 11x14 inch, but I’ve never shot any of the 3”x4” in the many years I’ve been wasting film and time. Maybe you will! OF COURSE you will!! Anyway, we have here:
1) 2 3x4 GRAFLEX ‘SPEED GRAPHIC’ camera bodies with only 1 back and 1 lens between them. Both focal plane shutters fire, so you can put together one working camera and have another for parts. One has synthetic bellows, one has leather, the synthetic is prone to misfolds but both seem light tight on quick inspection.

2) The lens is a 127mm KODAK EKTAR, a really great chunk o’glass whose Kodak Supermatic shutter is slow on the long speeds but might be OK at 1/25 sec and faster-- fix it, or just use the FP shutter.

3) There’s TEN (count ‘em, 10) two sided film holders for 3x4 sheet film.

4) Where do you get the sheet film? You could buy it from Freestyle, or just get it RIGHT HERE— it’s REALLY OLD (1963 OLD), but OTOH it’s KODAK PANATOMIC X, which is renowned for hanging around loooooong past its sell-by date. I have shot plenty of PanX of this vintage, and it has worked— overexpose by a stop as a starting point. One box is open, 1 is still sealed— I estimate about 44 sheets of the original 50 are left.

This is for experimenters and tinkerers, nothing is guaranteed to work perfectly without some effort, and remember I’ve never used any of this stuff. That’s why the price is a low EIGHTY NINE DAMN U.S. DOLLARS, with shipping in the CONUS a flat FORTY BUCKS— there’s 15 pounds of stuff, carefully packed! (At this size and weight and level of equipment, it's probably not worth shipping internationally, but if you feel the siren call from across the seas I'll do it, but it will cost.)
