Calumet/Cambo 45N SC-Nr 4X5 Camera with Schneider 150mm Lens + Holders


The Cambo SC (Super Cambo) system is a highly modular and easy to use LF system. Most parts are interchangeable with other SC cameras from any other format, including knobs, lens boards, standards, rails, bases etc. The SC system was in production for more than 40 years, which makes SC system lens boards and other parts cheap and easy to find. Originally sold under Calumet's home brand, this camera is fully articulated and features all of the movements you can think of in a view camera, on both front and rear standards. Additionally, it is fitted with a rotating back, which also includes a bail back lever (for easy loading of film holders).

Schneider Xenar 150mm F4.5:

150mm is a normal-angle of view on 4X5 cameras (similar to a 50mm lens on 35mm cameras). This is a very sharp, high-speed lens. One of the fastest in its class (max aperture of F4.5). Electronic Compur shutter is extremely reliable and offers timed speeds of up to 32 full seconds. Fresh battery installed (these batteries are readily available and last for many thousands of actuation's).
