A few questions as I am new to LF.

I have been offered a mint View Graphics II camera and have just started studying photography.

What I need to know is whether or not it will do the job.

I need it for Landscape and product photography most importantly food photography.

I would also be interested in a manual since I can't seem to find one to download.

All help appreciated.

Thanks

Congratulations on your good fortune! A mint Graphic View II is a dandy gift to receive. I would say that for product (studio) photography the GVII is just what you want. As for landscape, you'll probably find it a bit on the hefty side compared to a field camera, but aside from that it's got all the movements you'll ever need. I would hazard a guess that it would be just about perfect for architectural work, too.

You can purchase the instruction book (reprint) and service manual from the following source:

Better yet, go to http://www.southbristolviews.com, Photography, Manuals, and download the GV & GV II manual for nothing in .pdf format. I printed it out & it's great! I discovered the pleasant way that Rich doesn't mind at all an email of appreciation for making this scan available on his website!

There are two manuals for the GVII: the instruction manual, which is short (7 pages) and the service manual, which is 32 pages. "Astewart" didn't specify which one he wants---possibly he isn't aware that there is more than one. The download from southbristolviews.com is the service manual, not the instruction manual. The latter would perhaps be more useful to someone who is just starting out with a view camera. At some point, though, he will probably want both.
