Korona and Collars

It’s amazing what one can find in the storage space on top of the darkroom.

James had called in to pick up a portable darkroom project and as I was pulling down some boxes I found this camera I’d stashed up there a few years ago and forgot all about.

A full plate Korona Home Portrait camera. I vaguely remember taking it apart.


All it really needs is a clean, reassembly…. oh and a new bellows.


Theres also a 5×7 back and a nice pneumatic barn door shutter made by Conley.



So whilst I was at it I had a look what else was up there of interest….. over 20 frames, a crinoline and a “box” of collars!




I really must have a clear out. I know, I know, I keep saying it.
