Ok, for those of you wanting to improve your photography or produce awesome negatives - I have an extra 4x5 view camera (body only) for sale at an affordable price. It's a Burke and James, 4x5, Orbit model. I love the camera, but I have two 4x5's and don't need two. I can send a picture to you.
email: wr@usa.com

Only $325 (does not include shipping).
- In great shape (but it definitely shows wear.
- The bellows is in mint condition.
- All movements work fine
- View camera (has front rise, rear and front tilt, no swings)
- Solid metal (a performer)
- Rotating back, nice! (landscape or portrait)
- Ground glass back is in great shape
- Metal Lens board included
- No lens (you can buy the one you think you need)
- View cameras are very versatile with only one lens
- A view camera forces you to think about everything
- The negative size is awesome (John Sexton uses a 4x5)
- Burke and James sold cameras in Chicago area many, many years ago.
- I also have a Minolta Spotmeter for sale at $300. It's their latest model for a spotmeter.
