Calumet Cambo 45N SC 4x5 camera with Schneider 150mm lens + holders
The Cambo SC (Super Cambo) system is a highly modular and easy to use LF system. Most parts are interchangeable with other SC cameras from any other format, including knobs, lens boards, standards, rails, bases etc. The SC system was in production for more than 40 years, which makes SC system lens boards and other parts cheap and easy to find. This kit consist of an SCII-style rear standard, a 45N/SC front standard bearer (lower portion) and an SCII-style frame (upper portion).
