Deardorff 4x5 Special 5x7 Film Back Large Format Field Camera. This Deardorff 4x5 Special 5x7 Film Back Large Format Field Camera, #972, is in very good cosmetic condition. It has minor wear and marks, especially on the base plate with the medallion.
Given its age, and the rigorous use these cameras are often put to, it is in very attractive shape. I rate it cosmetically at a (9). The original leather carry handle is in good condition.
The bellows are in excellent condition with no apparent tears or pinholes. The ground glass is clean and undamaged with some minor wear and marks. One of the brackets that holds the ground glass tothe frame is missing, but this does not impact functionality. Mechanically, this camera is in proper working order. All movements, adjustments, and locks function properly.
The 5x7 back removes, rotates, and connects properly to the camera. This camera comes with a lens board and what appears to be a custom-made 4x5 Graflok back.
This back is in good cosmetic and functional condition, but the pins that allow it to be attached to the camera do not quite line up properly with this camera body. This Deardorff 4x5 Special with 5x7 Film Back is ready to shoot!
