Nice fairly clean looking, Kodak Eastman View No 2, Improved Model of the Century, 8X10 Camera. 5 slides are included with the camera, as well as the Wollensak #4 camera lens. The camera appears to be opening/closing sliding on its track smoothly, just as it should. The bellows looks to be original and shows a little minor wear.
I'm not sure that those rubbed spots you can see in the photo create light holes or not. They look like they might just be on the creases and folding mechanism inside.. Cosmetically this camera as a whole is looking fairly nice. All I did was wipe it down with a clean shop rag, so there might be some more extra minor cleaning needed in a few places. Other very very minor age related wear might possibly be found as well.
The camera measures roughly 17.5" long when extended x 11.75" wide x 14 tall. The 5 slides are all set up for 8X10, and all of them have the glass pieces in the middle except for one. One slide appears to be in perfect mint condition, then the others each have some visible wear. The lens is a Wollensak Optical Company Optimo 8X10 Large Format Lens. I can't make any promises though. PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT MY OTHER ITEMS FOR SALE, AND ADD ME TO YOUR FAVORITE SELLERS LIST! Please note - There are.
