    I went to the flea market with my wife and her father last weekend... I've been going with them for years now always keeping an eye open for old camera gear... well, I finally found something.

    I bought a gareflex speed graphic. It needs a little cleaning up, but for 20 bucks I couldn't pass it up.:hs:

    from a little research it looks like the equivalent would be 240 megapixels.

    These can sell for a pretty penny on eBay if the bellows are in good shape, and it has a decent lens. You might get $300-$1k.

    bellows in great shape. It's got zeiss glass. Only real issue I see is the focusing screen in the back is busted.

    I found a date on it last night. 1914 :eek3: Also tested the shutter and it works perfectly! I've got some pictures of it that I need to resize and I'll post them later.

    :wtc: just found out it's not a 4x5, it's a 3 1/4x4 1/4, which they don't make film for anymore. But I have read I can take a 4x5 back and shave it to fit my camera.
