Burke & James Rembrandt Portrait Lens 10" F/4.5 Soft Focus Large Format Xlnt+ Nr:
This sale is for a Vintage Large Format 10-inch f/4.5 Soft-Focus Barrel Lens. I don't know the manufacturer but I think the lens was distributed by Burke & James.The outside diameter of the barrelmeasures approximately 2-inchesand thelensextends approximately2-3/8 inches above the lens board. The lens is mounted on a 7-1/4 inch x 7-1/4 inch lens board.There is a 5-3/4" x 5-3/4 inch Packard Shutter, with a 2-inch opening, mounted on the back of the lens board to control exposure.The shutteralsohas a connection for flash sync, that I have not tested,that probably fired those big oldflash bulbs.
The diaphragm blades operate smoothly and are oil free.F-stops are from F/4.5 tof/32.The diaphragmblades are fully opened but the f/stop arrow is between f/4.5 and f/5.6. This is visable in one of the photos.
The glass is clean and clear. No cleaning marks on either the front or rear elements. There is some internal dust that will not affectimage quality.There are a few rub/scrape marks on the front of the lensbarrel, just above the f/4.5 on the lens barrel.This is visable in the photos. This is minimal and the only thing I found other than the f/stop indicator.
This lens was made for making Soft-Focus images using an 8x10 view camera. You will need one heavy duty camera to mount this lens on because it weight 2.5-pounds.
Because of the age of this item, I am selling it "AS IS", so please offer accordingly.
