Ansco 5x7 View/field Camera Very Good Working Condition (no Lens) For Sale

Ansco 5x7 View/field Camera Very Good Working Condition (no Lens)

Very sturdy and reliable Ansco 5x7 View/Field camera, circa 1930s. I've used this camera extensively over the last couple years, but not much recently since I took up wet plate collodion photography and do more 4x5 and 8x10 with film. In fact, it's because I just bought a whole plate camera for wet plate that I selling my 5x7.
I love the design of this camera--easy to use and relatively lightweight and compact for a double extension view camera (extension is built in and slides out to about a 20" bellows draw). It has front rise and tilt, and rear tilt and (some) swing). In those respects I think it's better than my Kodak 2D. The bellows are in great shape and light tight. Gears are smooth. Wood has nicks and scratches from use but nothing to cause any problems. The previous owner filled in a fissure in the rear standard (photo #5) and I've never had any problem with it. The only other small issue that I can think of is that the left focus knob is stripped (and could be fixed), but right one is intact. Again, that never kept me from taking great shots with this camera. I have a set of shots with it on my Flickr page--if you want to see them, just ask for the link ( won't let me post it here). Photo #6 shows where the previous owner marked focal lengths along the rails; if that bothers you you can buff them off.
There is no lens included, but I am including three lens boards. Two match the body and originally came with the camera. I reamed them out to fit my lenses. The third (black) I had made for a particular lens. Among these three you should be able to adapt your own lenses.
It also comes with a nice 4x5 reducing back with ground glass. I never used it, but it does function as it should.
All in all I'd rate the camera a solid "8" -- it has its user marks, but that means it's been well used. I certainly intended to use it for many more years. As a bonus I'll throw in an unopened 2011 expiration date box of Efke PL 100 bw film (50 sheets) that I've kept in a fridge since purchase. Efke (in Croatia) apparently shut down not too long ago so this film is getting hared to come by (I paid $60 for it). Efke happens to be my favorite large format film.
I will ship USPS Priority and have set US domestic shipping to be $40. I have to set International at $85, but I will refund you if it is less (you won't pay more than that). I could ship slower economy mail if you would like and if it's available for your location.
