I've just been reading some of the forum here and wow,... I'm impressed with the vitality and quantity of interest and info.
I met a very pleasant and knowledgeable guy at a local antiques mall here in Central Florida a few weeks back and he invited me to sign up here.
Ok, I'm a little slow.
I hadn't really thought too much about LF photography since I've just begun dipping into MF with a Super Ikonta C and a Zenobia 645, however, the technicalities involved in LF "movements" scares the bejeesus out of me.
Again, I reiterate... I'm a little slow.
Anyway, I just ran into a Voigtlander Bergheil 6.5x9 with a Heliar 105mm/3.5 that looks quite clean, at least through the glass case it's sitting in, for $90. The only thing obviously wrong with it is it seems to be missing the bubble finder on the rise arm.
I'm gonna go look at it again today and see if it's usable, but I don't know what these babies are worth. Would it be worth $90 bucks?
It has a ground glass back that looks ok, i think, but no accessories or film backs that I noticed.
And how expensive or easy to find are roll film backs for these cameras?
