14x18 Camera info?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hi, I've inherited what looks to be a 14"x18" graphics or process camera from my Uncle's estate.

It doesn't have any manufacturer name or other info on the frame.

The f4.5 lens, which stops down to f16, has no shutter and the mount is marked: Haloid X 915 P 705

It appears to have been made to mount to a 14" wide track (maybe a 1" x 14" board?) of some kind, which I don't have.

There is a solid back plate, a frosted glass and a clear glass plate in the film end of the camera.

The bellows looks like it can extend to at least 2 feet without over-stretching.

And the unit is fairly clean, having been in storage for perhaps... 15 years.

I've stuck a couple photos up on the web at:



I'm wondering if anyone monitoring this group knows who made this unit, what's it called, what's it worth and where I might post it for sale... since, this isn't the place per the posting rules. :-)

Thanks in advance, Marv 310 649 3111

Put it on Ebay in the large format section with no reserve and you'll know exactly what it's worth in 7 days.
