1915 Eastman View No: 1 8x10 Camera
1915 Eastman View No: 1 8x10 Camera

The jewel of the studio, a 1915 Eastman View No. 1. At 102 years old it's completely indispensable in my studio. I sure hope I'm as useful at that age.

Superb lens, a bit banged up but still producing wonderful images. 

210 mm CP Goerz Berlin Serie III no.3 Doppel-Anastigmat
210 mm CP Goerz Berlin Serie III no.3 Doppel-Anastigmat

This little lens is likely from around 1899, with a serial number just predating 1900. It's a "pre Dagor" lens, later the Serie III would be renamed as Dagor in 1904. This one is numbered with Stolze numbers on the aperture ring starting out at 4.6 which converts to 6.8 in line with the Dagor's. A lovely albeit not very fast edition to the studio, what it lacks in speed it makes up for in style.

A very old uncoated Tessar. Almost as old as the Eastman, they make quite a pair. 

Eastman Projection Lens 7 1/2" f4.5
Eastman Projection Lens 7 1/2" f4.5

An uncoated Eastman projection lens from the 1940's, not really it's intended purpose but very sharp and adds a nice glow to things.

Another Kodak lens from the 1940's, this Ektar 127mm is still going strong.

It's Big... and I mean BIG... this 35in f12 lens easily covers 16x20 and will likely cover 20x24 with ease. This one is from around 1944-1945

Packard no: 6 shutter
Packard no: 6 shutter

Powered by air with a squeeze bulb this is a refurbished one, however the design is as old as can be, it's one of the very first shutter designs, this one the no:6 was the improved "timed" version which allowed for a timed 1/15th of a second.
