Not sure what model it is. Bought used a few years ago but almost never used by me. I'll let it go cheaply! I'll include a Primotar 4.5 5 1/4" lens whick seems to work well. Asking $225. For the right price, I'll pay the shipping (to the US)

Drew - greetings.
I might be interested in the camera for parts - nothing needed presently, but I can forsee some needs. Can you describe the way that the bellows attaches to the front standard? And the tightness and ease of operation of the sliding rails? Does the front rise work well? Do the film holders slide in and out as they should?

Thanks

Tom

This is not for parts...it works perfectly. I'll send videos if you're still interested. Not through this site as it has low standards for photos/videos...give me your email address if still interested.

Drew - my mistake. Please do send additional video/photos. It looks like a 45D to me, mostly: the photos I've seen of the 45D model have the film back release switches in the middle of the camera, rather than toward the side. But I think the 45D has gone through a few configurations - hard to nail the ID down, for me.

Thanks
Tom

The accordian bellows could be switched out to a bag bellows?
Any idea on minimum focusing distance?

The back w/ground glass comes off easily with two tabs at the top of the back. Very easy. Also: Yes the bellows will come out pretty easily. No idea on min foc dist.

I was hoping someone would snag this. I sourced a Wista 45sp a few months back, and I'm really happy with it. It's not quite as refined as the Linhof Technika, but for the money saved vs a used Technika, I'd buy the Wista again for sure.
