Fine Vintage 1930's Rodenstock Astra 9x12 Compact Bellows Camera Outfit:
THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE offerDING FOR: Here's a vintage Astra self-casing folding bellows camera, marketed by Rodenstock of Germany in the 1930's, for 9 x 12 cm exposures on glass plates or sheet film in standard European style single holders (or on #120 roll film if you can find a Rada or similar adapter that fits). As you can see, it's in gorgeous cosmetic shape with nicely detailed external leather covering, and it features smooth rack & pinion focus, a supple light-tight bellows, clean ground glass and pop-open viewing hood, waist level reflex viewfinder, an additional frame finder, and a razor sharp Tellonar 135mm f/3.5 lens in a superb Ibsor shutter with a full range of accurate speeds. It comes in the original heavy leather outfit case with three original plate holders and a film pack adapter. Wow! Just an outstanding example of a classic compact German folding bellows camera from the first half of the 20th century! Check out the pics below...it's a fine old beauty!
