A very neglected 1930s Lyra Six made by Fuji Kogaku, Japan. It does need lots of repair, the letherette is brittle, the metal has lots of oxidation, bellows as you can see is no good. BUT.. to me it has potential to be fixed back up. Suprisingly the lenses are clear and shutter is slow but working. I am very happy to have this in my collection, as it is also the earliest Japanese pre war camera in my collection. To me.. it is worthy to be salvaged as best it can.
Linhof Twin Shank Tripod CLA complete and now available on my website. After an extensive 12 hours of rebuild service, this tripod operates very smoothly again. Shown with the beautiful Linhof Master GTL 4x5.
Super strong, great for all sized large format cameras. An excellent example with minor wear only, these vintage tripods are often found in rough cosmetic condition with almost always with stiff movements due to age (they are now 40+ years old!). This one is ready to use and the only fully serviced vintage one to be found online. .
SOLD! I have more coming available soon.
Dedication to preserving the best large format cameras ever made.
When I’m not shooting I have the (absolute) pleasure to work for the best camera repairman in Florida(😃). Just wanted to share a little behind the scenes and also say - go follow us on our new Instagram @kiwicameraservice 🤗
