Burke and James Orbit 4X5 Camera with 135mm F4.7 Lens + Holders


A basic version of the venerable Calumet CC400 camera system, this B&J "Orbit" is a timeless classic. It is an all metal monorail view camera design, which has lasted for decades as a solid, robust and reliable work horse. This camera is simple and easy to use. With a rotating back, bail back lever and self-locking front rise, it's a breeze to set up.
