An amazing ORBIT Brand 8 x 10 monorail view camera in fine vintage condition for its age. Dating to the 1950's this large format camera makes for a stunning display piece. Lacking some of the simple components required for taking photos - we have priced the piece accordingly due to its age and condition. We find the bellows to be in great shape - showing no sign of cracking or stiffness - moving freely and without force. All focusing wheels turn smoothly and allow proper tilt / shift control. It is important to take note of the broken ground glass (see photo 2).

The accompanying Star D Vintage Tripod by Davidson Co. is in fine working condition - perfectly capable of all necessary adjustments. With all of the above in mind - it is still in our best interest to reccomend this as a display piece to be sold AS-IS with no guarantees on performance. With historical value and sculptural beauty - this piece will surely bring an overwhelming nostalgia to any studio or living space!
