4x5 Wista DX. And 5 film holders. This camera shows some use but is solid. I sent it to Richard Ritter about 3-4 years ago and he said "Went over camera and checked the T dim it is ok. did repair the tripod mount. Over all camera is in sound condition." I have only used this camera occasionally since then.

$400 plus shipping. Sorry, U.S. Sales only. Please look at photos and a feel free to ask any questions. I could meet potential buyer in NYC

-Mechanically sound. All functions work correctly. Everything locks into place tightly. No stripped gears, knobs, or screws. No cracks or structural damage to wood.
-The ground glass Is is good condition with the exception of a small scratch in a corner (over the logo) and a few tiny light scratches.
-Full range of movements work correctly.

-May have slight cigarette smell from previous owner. I've eradicated it to the point where I don't smell it anymore.
-The handle is worn out. I used it without regard, but should probably be replaced or taped up at some point.
-Some pinholes in bellows corners visible when extended. I believe it is an easy repair. Otherwise it is flexible and folds correctly. I noticed the pinholes when examining for sale. I mostly shot wide angle and never noticed any effect on images.

-Brass is tarnished and/or shiny top layer is worn. I don't know if it can be polished. I never bothered.
-Small scratch on corner of glass on logo. See photo.
-Light scratches on wood and base.

This could be an affordable introduction into LF. I think that the pinholes could probably be patched easily and it will be ready to shoot. Includes 5 used 4x5 film holders.

I will also be listing a few nice affordable lenses soon. Fujinon A 240mm, Ridenstock Sironar-N 150mm, Fujinon W 125mm, tiny old Dagor Berlin 12.5cm. Please inquire if interested in combining.

Everything is solid, functioning properly, and looks the same as last year. The pinholes are only in the folded corners and only visible with a bright flashlight when bellows is extended. I never noticed them until I inspected it for the sale. Did not detect a cigarette odor. Includes shipping, holders, and a Beseler padded bag that fits the camera nicely.

Best,
David
