Hello

I enquired a building few years ago, and this camera and a bunch of other stuff came with it.

The camera is a Log E Robertson Comet with extra stuf and lights that came with it.
(Very Large Camera)
(I do not know much about it, and is this camera still being used or is it just a recycle metal)

Also there are (2) large vacuum table made by Douthitt Corp Model( DL - X 63195 )

Thanks
Jay

Sounds like a process camera. In which case, save the lens and bellows, the rest is probably scrap.

Ok.
Here are the images.
Were the plate is placed in back of the camera it measures 31" x 32"

Hope this helps out

The lens has some value if in good condition.

as do the safe lights hanging from the ceiling in the last photo (although, admittedly not much).

To me that looks like the copy camera the Department of Geology and Geography used when I was in college in the 70's. They were teaching students how to draw topographic maps by hand and then use the camera to copy the maps 1:1 for printing. Since I was not majoring in that field, I only saw the camera once--the students in Geology 101 were given a tour of the department's facilities. The camera took up a whole room in the building.

Hello,

We have a camera very similar to this in our facility in So Cal. It was built in 1982 and we no longer have a need for it. Does this camera have any value or would anyone have use for it?

Thanks,
Paul

I was once given a far bigger process camera. I cannibalized the lenses and the vac back. Everything else went to landfill.

Sometimes people make the guy, it's alway a guy, haul the thing out as a way of getting the thing they want which is the lens. Vacuum pumps are nice also if working and not contaminated by misuse. Even the vac back board may be useful.

It all depends and you are in a location with 1000's of possible users.

Five-year old thread. I wonder if the guy from Nigeria still needs this camera right away? I wonder what ever happened to the 890mm Nikkor.
