Ica LLOYD 660 9x18 Stereo Panoramic Rollfilm Camera Kodak Stereo Hawkeye Era
This is a ICA LLOYD 660 Stereo rollfilm camera, produced by the Ica Company of Germany during the early 20th century. The camera has exceptional craftsmanship, and also has many features associated with modern viewcameras: a lensboard that can be removed (although with some difficulty), a focus scale, and a Compur shutter. Both shutters are synced to go off at the same time. I just checked the shutter, and it runs well. The times may be off, so a CLA is always in order, but they seem right and synced correctly to me. There is also a ding on the lens on this side. The glass is clean and clear. The exterior leather is in good condition, although there is a small tear (pictured). As for the bellows, they are clean, subtle, and light tight. There are a variety of options for this camera. Beside being a collectible, it could still be modded and used. Film is no longer produced for this camera, so you will either have to find re-rolled stock, or adapt 120 film. The back has a divider for stereo photography, and the film gate could be modified for 6x12, 6x14, or 6x17. You may also be able to mount a flat wide angle lens to a separate board (like the 120mm Angulon or 80mm Weitwinkel Aristostigmat), and use this as a panoramic rollfilm camera with a 6x17 film gate. The baffle for shooting stereo is a little perplexing. It does not extend automatically, and it seems that you have to put it in place before you start shooting.
After extending the bellows and getting the baffle set up, it doesn't extend back and forth automatically when opening the camera. This means you'll have to keep the camera open until you are done with each roll of film. Alternatively, you could find 9x18 holders, and use sheet-film cut to size. The scale has one side for cut-film, and one for sheet film.
