beseler press camera? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread


I have found a Beseler 5x4 Press camera in a local shop. Are these any good? There is no lens and the focal plane shutter does not appear to work - it appears to be electrically operated - is that right? The front panel has good movements & the bellows are in good order. The rangefinder half works. The camera has a lot of darkslides with it, and a large fiberboard (green) case. Might it be ex-military?
