- Critique My Images
I'm new to this group but not photography, I would also consider myself as the lucky owner of Gandolfi Tailboard with a 5x4 back as well as the bookform plate back. The camera has not been used in many years and needs a clean although the bellows still seem light tight upon inspection with a highly directional light source. From reading online information guessing the age is a problem although it has bevelled bellows. Could it have been made by the legend himself, there is no mark on the camera I can see but the 5x4 back has a name stamp. Any ideas on the best way to clean the wood? would you leave the patina on the brass or polish it up. Where can I find a new lens panel, I have been looking for quite a while. Ideas and suggestions would be much appreciated and sorry to ask so many questions on a first post.
