$3,650.00



Classic Canham traditional/wooden 8X10 field camera with many extras and custom modifications.

this Canham camera, which was previously owned and meticulously maintained and modified by a master photographer, who was recently featured in the award winning short film "through the ground glass" (Search Google or Vimeo, Ebay no longer allows active video links). One of the most versatile field cameras ever made.

Includes:

Canham wooden 8X10 camera
Homemade 4X5 reducing back
#3 lens board (brand new)
Sinar DB shutter (custom fitted to this camera)
Rear extension frame
Custom accessory clamp
innovative custom modifications made by the previous owner:

Home made 4X5 reducing back. This is a bit rough looking, but works and fits the camera nicely
Modified Sinar DB shutter with cable release. This unit is modified to fit behind the front standard frame, and allows the front frame of the bellows to latch on to the back of the shutter. Along with the included custom built wood rear frame extension, this set up allows the user to fold the camera with the shutter mounted, without having to take it apart every time. Very handy in the field, especially for anyone using barrel lenses, Sinar DB copal shutter works
Accessory clamp mount for adding lens shade or filter carrier
***Currently, the camera is set up as it would have been when it left the factory (with exception of added braces and drill holes to accommodate the above), and can be used right out of the box, as is. The new buyer will need to install any of the modifications if they wanted (very fast and simple installation).
