Original Description:
This is an auction for an ULF 24x24 inch ultra large format Levy Cameras dating from 1911. This camera is made of mahogany, brass and leather. This is a beautiful LIFE SIZE PORTRAIT CAMERA or COPY CAMERA or ENLARGER or all of the above. Originally 110 years ago they were copy cameras for newspapers, making screened plates for offset printing of the newspaper. These could also be made into the ultimate STEAMPUNK tables, if some ultra large format enthusiast does not put them into operat...ion. I currently am using one camera as a table, with simply a finished glass top. This camera could be used as a life size portrait camera, such as Dieter Kohn was doing near Miami Florida in the mid 1980's. I visited his shop back then. These cameras will produce results/portraits a 1000 x's better than any digital camera. The portrait camera comes with both bellows, a 24x24 inch original ground glass back, the original brass hand cranks for focusing, all brass hardware for all movements. ALSO INCLUDED is an original 19" Goerz Artar lens and lens board. The front standard as a rise and fall and a left to right movement, controlled from the rear of the camera. There are 3 controls at the rear of camera, rise/fall, left/right and front standard movement using the brass hand crank. The back standard is controlled with brass wheel on right side, as seen in foto. The other brass lever, seen in foto, is for adjusting the dot patter based on the screen {dots per inch} when doing copy work, meaning distance from dot screen plane to the film plane, independent of the back standard, this is for fine tuning the dot pattern for newspaper offset printing. This camera is built to last another 200+ years when all memories of these asinine digital cameras are long gone. This auction is for one Levy 24x24 camera, a 19" ARTAR lens and all parts, cranks, bellows, etc. for use as a portrait camera. The camera is composed of 6 main parts, 1. THE 6 foot platform with brass gears. 2. THE FRONT STANDARD. 3. THE REAR STANDARD. 4. THE BELLOWS SUPPORT. 5. FRONT BELLOWS. 6. REAR BELLOWS.  If you are one of those freaky extra large format enthusiasts, this camera is for you. This camera was formally owned by Jim Williams, owner of the Antique Camera Museum of Milford Ohio, near Cincinnati. I think he owned it for 30-40 years. I have owned it for 35 years. He also did mural work with this camera, doing giant photo murals for hotels around Cincinnati. These cameras are located 4 hours north of San Francisco near Eureka California. This track does come apart for transport. For you who want the ultimate LARGE FORMAT CAMERA, or the ultimate STEAMPUNK TABLE, this auction is for you. Email with any questions or answers.
