Graphic View Studio Camera

Very good condition, fully functional

General Graphic View Information

In 1940 or 1941 Folmer Graflex followed the Corona View field-type camera with a full studio camera, the Graphic View, at a price of $97.50 USD. (Equivalent cost in 2008 would be $1,451.11.) The camera is notable for its unusual "inverted V" three-sided monorail.

Movements are standard for a monorail-type view camera

Front standard only - Rise and fall (3 5/8")

Both Standards - Shift (5/8") - Tilt (26°) - Swing (12°)

The View Graphic has a maximum bellows extension of 12", and a minimum of 3 1/2". The distinctive red bellows (made of some sort of coated canvas?) are not designed for removal or replacement; there were a few of the View Graphic cameras made with black bellows for the US Military (and released to consumers near the end of the View II run.)
A matching bellows lens hood was made to be attached to the front standard, it was hinged and could be swung up for access to the lens/shutter. 

The Graphic View was available with both the Graflex back and spring back. Graflok backs are not original to the Graphic View, but have been retrofitted in some cases. The Graphic View is easy to change from Landscape to Portrait: simply remove the back and re-attach in the desired orientation. The only size made in both models was 4×5 inch.

Camera House Price: £30.00
