I've been restoring this for about a year now, thinking it'd be great for street shooting.
And it is.
Trouble is, I'm not. To bastardise Austin Powers, "it's not my bag, baby"...
So, off it goes.
This is a beautiful example of this camera. The photos should show just how good it is.
I replaced the back for a decent one. Great condition.
I replaced the viewfinder.
I rebuilt and calibrated the rangefinder. Spot-on now for the 127mm.
The lens is in pretty good shape. Shutter is fine, but I use it with the focal plane shutter.
FP shutter seems spot on. No issues with exposures I've taken.
The only thing that I can see wrong with this is the metal strip on the right hand side of the camera is missing. This is purely a decorative.
There will be few Speed Graphics in Australia this good...
Includes the flash. (Amortise the cost by selling it to a Star Wars fan?)
$400 plus postage.
I'm happy to discuss delivery if you're in Melbourne.
