Berthoit 18 inch f4.5 Petzval Lens for Wet Plate Collodion

Berthoit 18 inch f4.5 Petzval Lens

a real nice Berthoit 18 inch f4.5 Petzval for you. it makes awesome images. i have had this lens for many years.. the glass is very nice. the flange is included. please note the hood was screwed on years ago a bit cross has been that way since. you can still remove all the glass form the lenses for cleaning etc. the focus dial is missing.....but you would have to have REAL long arms to use the focus knob on an 18 inch lens shooting portraits! no name on the barrel but it is written on the front and rear glass. this lens weighs over 8 pounds. the flange diameter is 6 1/2 inches.

i have taken some of my best portraits with this lens. it is an excellent lens for wet plate collodion and film. do not miss this lens. you do not see them very often.

This would make an excellent addition to your collection and would also create beautiful images on both film and wet plate collodion.

please note that shipping overseas fully insured from the USA is very expensive . i am sorry about this but i have no control over this. be assured the lens will be double boxed and professionally packed to help ensure it arrives safely.

I am happy to accept a return on this item if you do not want it. Your purchase
