    Neat! So you'll know, Commercial Ektars are all f/6.3. I don't b'lieve there was a 12"/4.5 Ektar.

    You are right. I think I mis-typed. I believe the camera is a Commercial View. The lens is not the 6.3 commercial Ektar, but rather the Kodak 12" Ektar 4.5 in an Ilex 5 shutter. I believe these were the continuation/renaming of the Kodak Anastigmats. Either way, Im happy to have the extra stop, though I am a bit worried about a top shutter speed of 1/50 with the Ilex 5.

    I recently came upon this Burke & James view camera and after seeing the condition, essentially unused, and the low price I had to grab it up. The only apology is a few paint flakes in the underside of the bed likely causes by wood expansion and contraction over the last 50 or 60 years. The area that is usually the most worn on these cameras is the lip of the back where the film holder is inserted. This camera didn't have any wear in that area at all. Everything is rigid and clamps down nicely and the bellows are looking great. I also made a conversion lens board so I can use my Linhoff style boards on this camera.

    I figure that we are all proud of our cameras in one way or another. It may be your first camera as you just start to learn, it may be that shiny new toy that the gearhead in all of us gets excited about, or it may be a trusted companion that's been with you for years. Regardless - our cameras are our conduit to making the images that we care about.

    So here's your chance - show off your baby!
    (LF cameras only, of course)


    I love 4x5 camera, but I always have to sharpen everything in Photoshop.

    I've waited 7 years for this... a few years back I had a back and forth conversation with Rod and even had an invoice ready to go but before I proverbially swiped my credit card, I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I was in graduate school, unemployed, my wife was carrying my behind.

    Now, I teach full time and we are back to a normal life. Life has a funny way of presenting you with opportunities and this beautiful Arca Swiss 8x10 / 4x5 complete kit (with rails, adapters, bellows, etc) fell into my lap. I've been waiting so long for this camera that the minute it arrived and I unpacked it, I deleted my social media accounts (with the exception of IG) because there's no going up from this beautiful machine.
