Century Graphic (149/365)
This is a 1950’s Century Graphic 6x9 camera. It’s my second press camera the first one from Graphic would be the full sized Speed Graphic seen in BOoOOOKKkkkkEEEHhhhhh to the right of the photo. This particular one uses the 101mm F4.5 Ektar lens, similar to my 4x5 (uses a 127mm).
This was bought today at a camera show, I was originally looking for a “23” Graphic back to use it on my Mamiya press Universal and there were many dealers who were selling that but they were all asking like 80-120 dollars depending on condition! This came with one of those AND a ground glass and the camera for 175. So what I’m saying is that for about 55 more dollars I have a very nice cap for my “23” Graphic back.
These are AMAZING camera’s by the way, if you ever have the chance to own one of these DO IT. They are the most fantastic value for money, there is no other 6x9 camera that will be as fun to use, and have as much freedom or as much modularity for so little money. The thing is also TINY to boot, it’s smaller than the Fuji GW690 and lighter as well and it folds up into a tiny tiny box.
Strobist: Canon ST-E2 controlling a 580EX (to the right of the frame bouncing off a wall), a 550EX in the rear lighting the background, a 430EX to the left of the frame as a kicker, and a 430EX to the left bouncing up.
Camera: Canon 5D mark II with 50mm F1.2L (@F1.8)
