I'm selling my Crown Graphic 4x5 press camera kit.

Kit includes:

Crown Graphic Camera with Kodak Ektar 127 f4.7 lens
Combiplan T 4x5 development tank
4 Graflex flash cords
rh/8 120 roll film back
Graflex bulb adapters
Graflex 3 cell flash
Fuji pa-145 holder
two 4x5 holders
1 box(25 sheets) of unexpired and unopened Artista EDU 100iso
3 boxes of flash bulbs

For full pictures of all accessories, go to:

Camera is in pretty good shape for it's age. Shutter speeds seem accurate and bellows are perfect. Little bit of wear on the leatherette box, and some minor dust in the lens, but that's it. No haze or fungus. Scratch or two on the ground glass but not that bad.

I cannot, however, testify to the working condition of any of this gear. The little range finder thing works, the shutter clicks, and the bulb flashes, but as I've lost the ability to develop at home, I never got the chance to actually shoot with this kit and develop with that tank. Therefore everything is sold as-is.

Please contact if you have any questions or want to see a better shot of anything.

Also, I'd trade this entire kit for a working basic Hasselblad 6x6 body with 80mm lens, back, and waist-level viewfinder.

Welcome to 1948!!!!

The 127 Ektar is in the legendary category. Compared to 35mm its a wide normal lens......

Good luck for a grand old timer!

It really is a very nice camera, and I spent at least two years now assembling the kit piece by piece just to finally realize that I'm never going to really use it. Street photography is what I like doing with film and the Ikoflex TLR I use is much more suited to how I shoot, as (maybe) would one of the smaller 6X6 medium format SLRs. While I love cameras I cannot be a camera hoarder, so if the 4x5 doesn't/won't get any use, it's gotta go.
