Who wants a 4x5? YOU DO!!!

Hello blog readers! Looking for the perfect gift for that special someone this holiday season? Well, look no further... Buy them a 4x5 camera!! Here is my 4x5 that I have decided to sell after many years of fun together. I originally bought it with the intention of converting it for wet plate but I never got around to it and now I've got my eye on something new. The asking price is $900 but I might be a little flexible with a local (someone in South Carolina) buyer. Email me at jennaleighbrown[at] if you're interested. Also, check the posting below for a list of what's included.

Hello all,
My wife has decided to sell her 4x5 camera to move on to some other projects. This camera is in good condition overall with good movements, clean glass and light tight bellows. Some of the creasing on the bellows is a little off but they are dark and work fine. The lens is a Fuji W. 135 f/5.6 (range is f/5.6 - f/64). The glass is clean and clear and all speeds seem accurate (B, T, 2-500) but I haven't tested them other than just listening to them. Exposures have always been accurate with this setup so I have no reason to believe it doesn't function. It does look like there is some dust in the lens, but I haven't tried to take it down to clean it as I don't know much about the 4x5 systems.
Included are the following items:
• ToyoView Camera
• Fuji 135/5.6 Lens
• Carry/Storage Case
• Dark Cloth
• A User's Guide to the View Camera 3rd Edition
• 7 4x5 Backs (Various Brands)
• Various Films

Please email or PM me with questions or offers on this item and I'll try and get back to you ASAP. The price is negotiable. I am only interested in domestic US sales at this time because of the size and weight of this item. I'm asking $25 for shipping by UPS Insured Shipping (which probably isn't enough, but we'll eat the rest). If it doesn't sell in a reasonable amount of time, I will consider international sales, but shipping will be on the buyer.
If you want to discuss it over the phone, I would be glad to PM anyone my phone number and we can discuss it in-depth at that time so I can answer any questions or concerns you may have in real-time.
Thanks so much!
