I'm hoping to buy a Graphic View II and it may be necessary to purchase from an overseas seller. Can anyone tell me what a GVII weighs?
Thanks
Brian

The first "Graflex View" model, without a lens but with the pan-and-tilt mount, weighs a few ounces less than eight pounds. A "View II," with its longer rail (and, probably, more complex "Graflok" back) might weigh a couple of ounces more, but I don't think the total weight would exceed 8 lb., or not by more than an ounce or so at worst.

Add some for box and packing material. I just received a couple of books from the UK and it took longer to unwrap them then it took for the boat from the UK-)

I'm curious that nothing else is available locally? Even if you have to pay more for the camera you'll save the shipping.

Okay, got my curiosity up

Just weighed my GVII on the kitchen scale.

Comes in at 9 3/4 pounds!

This camera has standard lens, graflok back, tripod mount and compendium hood...

The compendium hood seems to weigh in at just over a 1/2 pound... So a complete camera, minus the hood, would be about 9 pounds...

I sold a GVII, just about a month ago, through the dreaded auction site and all packed and shipped the receipt said it weighed in at 11 pounds and 10 oz, so with packaging, I would be you would be safe at 12 pounds...
