Ansco 8X10 Field Camera with Caltar 240mm F5.6 MC Lens + Holder


This is a nice, used, wooden, folding Ansco 8X10 field camera with a classic lens.

This camera was beautifully custom modified to include a very useful rear rise movement (possibly the most useful movement on a large format camera).


- Ansco 8X10 camera
- Caltar 240mm F5.6 lens (made by Komura, Japan)
- 1 8X10 film holder (used, wooden, tested light-tight)

Camera Features:

- Front movements include rise, fall and shift
- Rear movements include tilt and swing
- Large bellows draw (26+ inches)
- Camera weighs about 12LBS

Camera Condition:

Camera is used, but still retains original sheen and finish.
Camera is intact and fully functional, working as it should.
Bellows is tested light-tight (appears to have been previously patched up, but working nicely).

Caltar 240mm F5.6:

Moderately wide-angle of view on 8X10. This is essentially a Komuranon 240mm (same as Schneider Symmar 240mm), made in Japan. Glass is clean, shutter fires nicely on all speeds.
