Graflok back Graflex RB Super D 4x4 Film Camera Kodak 152mm f4.5 Lens converted from 3x4. This allows you to use 4x5 film and get 4x4 square images from it.Condition is gorgeous for both body and lens, especially for the age. This has a converted back by 20th Century Camera that allows Graflok 4x5 backs to be used that creates a 4x4 image. This is due to the rotating back allowing 3x4 in either direction, so a 4x4 image is created by the beautiful 152mm f4.5 Kodak Ektar lens. The original 3x4 back is included, as is a 3x4 film holder so the conversion is fully reversible.
There is a small crack in the 4x4 conversion back so only graflok should really be used (not the spring back attachment that Graflex made). Of course you can use at your own risk, but I would stick to the graflok (and of course I will not accept a return for this if broken where I show the weakness has occurred). You may be able to glue this and use it but this again is at your own risk.
All shutter times sound good and the shutter cloth is in lovely condition, but I would suggest a CLA to ensure they are on point. I have tried slower speeds but not the fastest (1/1000) but exposures came out beautifully on these speeds and this lens creates stunning imagery.The 1/1000 sounds really good though (it wasn't bright enough to test). Grab yourself an absolute bargain as this is a rare example, and the perfect way to get into premium large format film photography.
