Kodak Master View 8X10 camera with Wollensak 305mm OR Nikon 300mm lens NEW BELLOWS
The ultimate all metal 8X10 field camera. One of the smallest folding 8X10 cameras ever made. Made of high grade magnesium alloy, this all metal camera features amazing craftsmanship and an ever-lasting design. This camera has recently had a brand new bellows installed, is in good working condition and has almost limitless movements. It is one of most rigid camera designs ever made and one of the most usable/versatile 8X10 field cameras available.
Camera shows some normal signs of use, as you would expect from a 60+ year old, used camera.
