View Full Version : 14x18 Camera info?

18-Jun-2001, 23:01
Hi, I've inherited what looks to be a 14"x18" graphics or process camera from my U ncle'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" bo ard?) of some kind, which I don't have.

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

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

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 is n'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.
