Deardorff copy (Rajah) 8X10 camera + Rodenstcok 240mm F5.6 lens (Front swing)

$1,650.00



An excellent 8X10 field camera. Compact folding, very nice craftsmanship. The Rajah was made in India for short while as a lower cost Deardorff copy. This camera is made of teak wood and brass hardware. It is an almost exact copy of the Deardorff camera of the same era, with some minor differences. This camera looks like it has seen very little use which is evident in its very nice finish and overall condition.
