Folmer Schwing Banquet 12X20 camera + Dagor 14" lens + two holders NEW BELLOWS
Late production Folmer banquet 12X20 camera, paired with a nice Dagor 14" F6.8 lens, and 2 brand new (old stock) Golden Busch holders. Brand new bellows installed.
A very complete and intact, turn key 12X20 kit - just add film and go shooting.
12X20 is available from Ilford, Bergger, Shanghai and others, as regular or special order items.
Lens glass is clean. Aperture moves smoothly with no oil on the blades.
Original black paint barrel in good shape with a minor ding on the front rim.
Spare lensboard included as well.
We have several good working Packard shutters, which can be fitted behind the lens at extra cost. Ask us about adding this option. Installation will have to be done by the new owner.
Note about film the holders: These two 12X20 holders were purchased new from Golden Busch a while back and were never put into use. They do show some shelve wear, but otherwise are basically new. They are not an exact match for the camera, but do provide a good light-tight seal inside the camera back. As with all Banquet cameras (and any 100+ year old camera), it would be ideal to use a darkcloth over the holder/back when pulling the dark slide. Otherwise, these holders are amazing.
