    Fair price for Kodak Master View 8X10?

    I'd like to buy a Kodak Master View 8X10 to replace the one I had owned for fort y years that has been stolen. I'm somewhat shocked at the prices I'm seeing for them in Shutterbug. What is a fair price for one in good to excellent conditio n?

    Thank you, Barrie Smith, Missoula, Montana

    Fair price for Kodak Master View 8X10?

    I have what is probably a permanent lust for one of these cameras. I'd like to replace the Kodak 2-D that I use. However, the price is a bit high.

    There was one on eBay today (5/5) that was at $500, the reserve had NOT been met and it was in only OK repair. I've seen good ones go for slightly over $1000.

    good luck

    10 years ago you could get them for around $750 (+/-) depending on condition and who was selling them where and what accessories came with it.

    Prices have been climbing though and the last one I bought, with case, CFH and iris lens clamp on EBay went for $1100.00. And it needed a new bellows. So far, everyone I have purchased has needed one.

    The highest I have ever seen anyone ask is $1450.00 at Lens & Repro in NYC but I believe it had a new bellows.

    I would guess that 1000.00 - 1250.00 would be par for the course, but as many have observed Ebay has affected prices with folks seeming to be willng to pay new prices for used gear.

    The Masterview I acquired three years ago cost me $1350 and I would gladly give that again for another in the same condition. Original everything including the bellows and bearly a mark anywhere on the body. Four lensboards (two undrilled) rounded out the deal. Comparing the alternatives, it is still a deal if you can find one. Although I saw a Wista 8x10 just go on Ebay that looked pretty nice for $1050. If you owned one for 40 years, you must feel lost without it. Best of luck in finding a replacement.
