• Gaoersi 8X10 camera
• Rodenstock Grandagon N MC 155mm F6.8

Camera Features:

• Specifically designed around the Grandagon 155mm lens, though other ~150mm 8X10 capable lenses maybe used (limited to a Copal #1 shutter)
• Helicals for other focal lengths can be found
• Movements include rise and fall
• Focusing helical allows for very close focus all the way to infinity
• Camera can be set up for vertical or horizontal shooting
• Built in ground glass protector
• Removable spring back

Camera Condition:

• This camera is used, tested, and working as it should
• Cosmetically, this camera is in good shape and shows minor/normal signs of use
• All knobs and latches are working as they should
• Focusing helical is smooth
• Spring back assembly was missing one of the spring struts - and has been replaced with a spring steel - works very nicely though not original - back can still easily be removed as needed
• Film holders slide under the glass as with any other 8X10 camera
• Plain ground glass is clean and clear, though does have some minor marks on matte side
• Ask us about upgrading to a custom ultra bright fresnel/glass combo (add $270)

Rodenstock Grandagon N MC 155mm F6.8:

• 155mm is a normal-angle of view lens on 8X10 cameras (similar to a 50mm lens on 35mm cameras)
• One of the only lenses of this focal length that covers 8X10 and definitely the brightest
• This lens is used, tested, and working as it should
• Exceptionally clean, multi-coated glass
• Shutter is in good working condition and fires nicely on all speeds
