    Around 7 pounds, around a pound less if an early one with no front swings and no bed plate.

    I would imagine that a wooden camera would weigh more in an area with very high humidity. The overall weight would also depend on the bellows type, ground glass, and whether or not it has the aluminum base plate.

    Oddly, this version of the 5x7 Deardorff brochure that I happened to see on eBay today seems to indicate that the camera weighs 7 lbs. It's not a great image, but it does look like it says 7.
