Beseler C-6 4X5 US Army 4X5 Camera with 135mm Lens


Extremely rare camera, even more rare in fully working and serviced condition. Very few ever made, and all require a complete service to use today. This camera has had a full service to the internal focal plane shutter and rangefinder system, and is fully functional and ready to use. Far above any other press camera, this is one of the best options out there.
