Graflex Speed Graphic Press Camera
A couple days or so ago I made a thread about me getting this relic from the past from a friend for free.
I've found out that this camera is well worth over 600$ in it's condition, it's from as early as the 1940's (the Kodak lens on it is from 1946 using the CAMROSITY date code).
Fun fact also, the flash that's on the side of this camera, the round cylinder to be specific (think of the flash bowl being removed and just the rod there) was used for the lightsaber base in the first few Star Wars movies. Pretty cool right? The actual prototype that was made before production began was sold for over 200,000$.
Here's a picture of my Graflex that I will be giving to my brother as a gift.

He's not a young faggot like most of the users here, he actually has the power of rational thinking.
With the work he's going to be putting into this camera to restore it to a nice clean practically new state, he won't want to get rid of it.
