I purchased this Zone VI view camera new and never used it. Never attached a lens to the lens board. It has all of the swings and tilts plus I believe 18" of bellows draw. It's a great camera. Asking $800.00 plus $25.00 shipping be priority mail. Prefer pament by us post office money order or certified check from US bank or Wells Fargo. Please add $25.00 if payment by Pay Pal to cover their fees. Can all include a couple of film holders.

I have a Sinar-f 4 by 5 but at nearly 80 years old will never use it as I have no more dark room. Someone will own a very nice Zone VI view camera. I wish I were 40 years younger - I would consider this.

This camera is a beautiful piece of equipment. Hopefully you can find a buyer that has skills and knowledge to make the best use of it.

Keep us posted on the sale of this absolutely beautiful camera. If I were 40 years younger I would buy this camera and take up "wet" photography again as I did in the 1960s and 70s.
I see the camera was made in Newfane, Vermont. I have friends who now live there. Nice country up there.

Sadly our local camera store closed - it had sheet film and developing/printing services. That is a beautiful camera - a historical piece of art and engineering. I had a 4x5 view camera for several years - it was steel and very, very heavy, but the images I could create were awesome. The photography class at the college I attended had view camera kits for each student in class to use. You HAVE to learn photography when you use a view camera! And when it can take 20-30 minutes to get set up for one photograph you have to learn composition - even if the image IS upside down!

I guess the sentiment here is that's it's a beautiful piece and it should go to a home that will appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship. And yes Newfane VT is a lovely area in southern VT. I take RT 30 out of Brattleboro up to the family property north of Dorset

Yes, God's country indeed. We would take Route 30 out of Brattleboro and stay at the Windham Hill Inn in West Townshend, VT. Very colorful in October but not so in April (mud season).

Absolutely God's country, it's different in VT. some sibs and cousins etc all own property in either Wells, or Poultney around Lake St. Catherine, been going there since day one. The Rt 30 corridor is great anytime of the year, even in mud season!

There are lenses made for view cameras such as Rodenstock or Schneider. Also Fujinon makes great lenses for these cameras. They must cover a large negative. I have a Fujinon-w 135mm f5.6, also for sale, for about $200.00 , also, Rodenstock 210mm f 5.6 for about $350.00. Photo's from 4 x 5 negatives have incredible detail. Hope this helps Thanks for asking.

These lenses sure bring back old memories for me from the early 1970s.
