Some of you might already know, I am downgrading my collection of wet plate gear.
Over the years I have collected quite some wet plate stuff.
But I have decided to sell most of it as I always use the same lenses and same camera.
So it's Time to let them go and have them used by others.
All 4 lenses are nearly the same size, 21-22cm in hight
and rear lens part is about 9-9.5cm in diameter
Hermagis convertible Petzval Lens
Comes with Original Flange
300mm F 4.8
early serial number 9339
Nice sharp petzval ( I prefer to use Hermagis)
previous owner opened the back part with quite some force,
using "heavy" tools.
So the back glass has some chips of and look quite beaten of.
BUT, the projection on the ground glass looks just great.
Crispy as every hermagis.
And if you don't know you will never notice it as this part will be inside the camera.... :)
Asking price: SOLD!!!!
Very rare Alexis Millet cone Petzval
This petzval has access with a bajonet connection.
Aparture is inside the lens with rings.
330mm f 5.2
Very clean crispy glass.
No scratches besides the normal tiny cleaning marks.
Rack and pignon sometimes slips, but who will ever use that??
Asking price: 1100,= euro
French Gasc & Charconnet Petzval
Ff you take out the fixed aparture it will be a fast 4.5
