View Full Version : Glutton for punishment? Century 9a

That basket case century 7 i got in the philly junkshop is still being put right. I removed & repaired the bellows, using the black fabric paint on the corners & swatches of black silk.

So then this came along, a century 9a. I thought i could make 1 good cam out of both but this actually looks pretty good on it's own. It has a back for 5x7 & 8x10. The front bellows seem to have never been extended, the finish is in good shape, I got lucky & theres seems to be a shutter, but he sold the lens & lens board.

Anyone have any opinion on this camera? and can the shutter be id'd from the pic?
