RARE GRAFLEX NATURALIST 4X5 CAMERA

Specifications

This auction is for a rare Graflex Naturalist 4x5 camera. The Naturalist was produced in limited quantities from 1907 to 1921 by the Folmer and Schwing division of the Eastman Kodak Company. The Naturalist camera was designed for nature photographers who needed the ability to use longer focal length lenses. Essentially an elongated Auto Graflex, the Naturalist has a focal plane shutter with T, 1/10 to 1/1000 shutter speeds. The Naturalist will accept lenses from 12 3/4" to 26" in focal length on a 4x4" lensboard.

 Graflex serial numbers are hard to date, but this camera's serial number is 36009. It is not the 1907 version Naturalist, because this camera has a two position viewing hood, which was not introduced until 1908. Cosmetically, for the rarity and age of this camera, it is in good condition. There are scratches on the leather in various areas on the camera but it there is only one area where the leather appears to be missing, which is a 1x16cm strip on the rear of the camera (check pictures). The bellows are in good shape and appear to be free of light leaks. This particular camera's focal plane shutter will need to be serviced before use. The shutter will fire and the curtain will move most of the time, but the speeds are certainly not accurate. The shutter curtain material in in great condition with no rips, tears or holes and could be reused. Service for this camera can still be obtained at various repair facilities. Please be aware that there is no lens, lensboard or film holder for this camera. Please ask all questions before bidding. Thanks for looking.
