$3,690.00 Sold Out

This camera has been fully refurbished while preserving its amazing 70 year patina. This camera dates to ~1950 and has been very well preserved. During this process, each and every piece of metal hardware, including every single screw on this camera has been removed, cleaned and re-installed, aligned and is now better than it was when new. Note the meticulous screw head alignment throughout the entire camera. A new strap was installed at the same time.

This is a non front swing V8 camera, offering better front end stability and 2LBS weight savings.

A brand new CatLABS made bellows installed May 2022. All tracks are lubricated and movements are all as smooth as you can expect from a Deardorff.
