Vintage Korona By Gundlach 5x7 Camera With Extension Rail & 4x5 Back Xlnt :
This sale is for a 5x7Korona by GundlachField/Studio camera inExcellent Condition forits age.Itcomes with a 5x7 back that can be changed from horizontal to vertical. It also comes with a 4x5 reducing back and a bedextension that extends the bellows to 24-inches. The bellows look like they have been replaced and I see no light leakage. All the controls operate smoothly and lock securely.The camera come with two undrilled lens boards.One is wood and the other is metal and are not original.
I do not think this is an all original camera. The body has nickel plated hardware and the 5x7 back is brass but the finish does match the camera. It seems tofit the cameraand rotates without a problem. It could bea Korona back from a camera with brass hardware.The 4x5 backcould be original because it doesmatch the camera's nickel hardware and the overall finish.The extension rail is original and has matching numbers with the bed of the camera.Also, the lens board opening, on the front standard, has been reduced by someone. And also, I think the leather carrying strap has been replaced because it is now black.That's all folks!
The front standard has a Scissors mechanism for on-axis tilt, geared rise, sliding shift and swing. The rear standard has geared tilt and sliding swing and the back is reversible for landscape or portrait orientation.
