This is a super wide angle 6 inch lens (154mm) in high speed shutter for 9 x 9 inch Fairchild camera.

This lens and shutter assembly weighs about 4 lbs and 8 inches in diameter. The lens is about 2.25 inches in diameter.

I was not able to find out much about this lens, but found a photo of the camera it goes to (last photo).

I don't know if the shutter is working or not. I can open and close the shutter by turning one of the couplings, and also the aperture.

The glass is in pretty good shape with minor scratches and some dust inside. Also small scrape on front lens.

$125 plus postage.

Photographer in photo #5 looks like he's gotten more flak than a street photographer at mardi gras.
