Nice, working 1909 Kodak TBI Automatic FPK with. Bausch and Lomb lens and the original heavy leather case. The lens is pretty clean, the aperture and the shutter seem to be working fine. Looks like there is no shutter setting, so the shutter fires at one speed only.
The bellows are a bit messed-up in terms of folding neatly, but it doesn't seem to have created any light leaks (see the images) and appear to be in working shape. The only issue I see when it comes to actually shooting something with this camera is the focusing mechanism.
It is very difficult to see the subject, let alone focusing. You would almost be guessing how to frame the shot well. There is a rise and fall mechanism and, if you can figure out the issue with framing the shot and what type of film to use, this camera could be a lot of fun. The leather case flip closes but doesn't lock.In overall, given its age and use, this camera is in great condition and looks fantastic and, if can't be used, should belong in a fine, antique camera collection. I try to do my best. And represent each item in the most honest and professional way I can. Still, I cant know everything about everything. Please ask as many questions, as you may deem necessary, to make sure what you are purchasing is up to.
