    This is my own 8 x 10 DEARDORFF camera. L.F. DEARDORFF & SONS, INC., CHICAGO. I used it in one of my many hobbies, taking portraits of the kids (of course) and still life and landscapes. It is in excellent condition and with good bellows. It has all the front and rear swings. And front and rear tilts. Does everything a Deardorff is supposed to. The back glass is excellent. The wood is excellent. I have never had any issues or problems with it. Comes with one lens, though I have more, including current lenses on Deardorff lens boards. When my wife W9RLH and I lived in Illinois I took a course in Zone Theory from Jack Deardorff at the Deardorff factory.

    This lens is a Cooke (British) wide-angle lens in an Ilex Acme Synchro Shutter. Focal length 6.25 inches.
    Aperture f6.5 – f32. Speeds: bulb and time to 1/200 second.

    Other lenses are available. And because I loved photography I have darkroom equipment. Also reducing backs and film holders. Price $1500 OBO. Shipping at cost. Please email me
