Original Ansel Adams Arca-Swiss 4x5 Camera up for grabs . . .
« on: November 20, 2018, 06:12:18 pm »

As part of its annual Hollywood memorabilia auction, Profiles in History is auctioning off an Arca-Swiss 4x5 monorail camera owned and used by The Master himself.  No lens, but it seems to be in fairly good shape.  www.profilesinhistory.com will allow you to download the catalog, where it is item #245. The auction starts on 12/16.

It is now Dec 30--is there any update on the selling price?

It turns out that this auction occurred several YEARS ago.
