Extremely Rare – Graflex, U. Military, “Still Picture KE-4 (1)” 70mm Combat Rangefinder Camera. The body is made of cast magnesium, and is finished in drab olive. It uses 70mm double sprocket-ed film in cartridges which are like oversize 35mm cassettes. It measures 10.5 inches wide, by 5.5 inches tall, and with the 205mm lens is 10 inches deep. With the lens on, It weighs in at a hefty 6 pounds, 12 ounces. EXCELLENT CONDITION – Seems to have all the necessary parts and should be working, however the crank/advance on the bottom won’t move and the shutter doesn’t fire. I know it’s a spring fed “motor”–maybe it needs film in it to fire? I don’t have a manual for it so I don’t know. The camera body looks great, with no dents or scratches and very little wear. The 205mm lens is almost perfect with clear and clean glass, except for for one very small nick in the front element. The camera number is “477745” stamped on the inside of the camera back and on the removable back. The lens is a Kodak Ektar Lens 8in. And used by the U.
