Graflex Crown Graphic Special 4x5" Press Camera
with Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 135mm f/4.7


Just Sold


Serial number : 932041

This model is fitted with a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar Compur-P 135mm f/4.7, offering speeds from 1s to 1/500, and B  function.

All shutter speeds are very snappy. The One second sounds accurate.



In good overall condition, the leather showing only some faint marks.  All other metal parts are present and shinny.

Lens and shutter:

The compur shutter has received a full service (disassembly, cleaning, lubrication). All speeds sound correct.

The lens has been disassembled and cleaned, it is free from fungi or haze. There are some cleaning marks on the front element.

The rangefinder has been disassembled, cleaned and adjusted. It is now bright and accurate. It can be fitted with batteries to lit it up in dim light (tested and working).

The focussing glass and the panel wing shields are intact. The focussing glass is in good condition.

The bellow has some holes (see pictures). These have been repaired in the past with black tape inside.  Tested with a torch, no pinholes could be seen.
