FOR SALE! Brooks-Plaubel Veriwide 100, Serial Nr. 5292433 with Rare Leitz Leica Finder $2500 USD with Free Shipping
The camera was made from 1959 till the mid 60’s, and less than 2,000 were produced. On the camera you can see the inscription: Brooks-Plaubel New York – Frankfurt a/M. It produces 6 x 10 (56 x 92mm) images on 120 film, equivalent to 90 megapixels. It's one of the smallest medium format cameras ever made, weighing 1kg and slightly bigger than a Leica M3. The 100 refers to the visible angle of view in degrees.
The design was by Frank Rizzati for the Burleigh Brooks Co of New York. The body by Plaubel Feinmechanik und Optik Corporation of Frankfurt (Germany), the superb 47mm f/8 lens by Joseph Schneider and Co. of Kreuznach (Germany), Synchro Compur shutter by F. Deckel (Germany) and 21mm bright-line finder by Leitz/Leica (Germany) engraved “Veriwide 100 Brooks New York.
The camera is in excellent working condition, lens is mint condition with no fungus or marks; all shutter speeds are fine. Camera is clean inside and outside and is fully functional. Comes with leather soft case by Voigtlander, original Leitz leather hard case for the finder, rare 1959 Burleigh-Brooks catalog released same year as the camera, original Veriwide instruction book, original Brooks Zip-Grip designed to work with the camera's base and two spare locking plates. There are very minor scratches on the camera, and all original leather in good condition. The only thing missing is the small rear finder for the sports wire finder, but as I have the Leitz finder this isn't necessary.
The Voigtlander Bessa III soft case was $400 new in box when I purchased. The original leather hard cases are almost impossible to find, and the case perfectly protects the camera when carried in a camera bag. The Leitz/Leica finder is very rare and hard to come by, and generally sells around $6-700 USD. I will throw in a box of (cold stored since new) Fuji Velvia 50 film to get you started.

The landscape of Mie Prefecture and the scenery of Sakhalin(my grandmother's hometown) seem to be very much...
