For sale is this very unique and rare Photosphere Conti 9x12cm plate camera by the french Compagnie (Cie) Française de Photographie. It is surprisingly light, weighing only 650g with a plate holder! IT is in good condition overall for a camera that is more than 120 years old. The patina is nice and smooth and there is no trace of corrosion. The shutter mechanism cocks and fires in the right position.The tensioning mechanism is very primitive so the chances that the shutter speed adjustment lever is out of spec are very high if you ever want to shoot plates with it but it's already not the most convenient medium anyway ###128521; the wooden plate holder is double-sided and the darkslide is chipped in the corner on one side. The chip is included and shown in a picture, it can probably be glued back in with no issues at all. The red velvet that acts as a light trap is not in super good shape and could be changed if you wish so.
It's your chance to get this unique and deliciously weird piece of photography history! Feel free to ask any questions you might have regarding this camera, I will be glad to help you. Have a very nice day! L'item "Photosphere Conti 9x12cm camera. Rare collector travel camera from late 1800's" est en vente depuis le samedi 10 octobre 2020.
