I have now entered the domain of large format photography with the purchase of Burke & James Commercial View 4×5 camera.
The camera included two film casettes; a Riteway and a Fidelity Delux.
And, a box of expired ERA ISO 100/21˚ film (maybe 10 sheets).
The camera is not finished in the typically noted grey paint. This unit appears in a plain wood, yet finished with a clear varnish.
The objective is clear with no fungus. A few bit so small trash, but, those bits should be eaisly removed if I dissassemble the lens.
The lens is a Compur with the notation C.P. Goerz Berlin Dogmar 1:4.5 F=12.5cm on the element ring face.
The bellows appears to be whole, with no holes.
Now I need to get the unit in operation and take some photos.
