Calumet CC401 4X5 Camera with Schneider 150mm Lens + Holders


The Calumet CC401 camera system is a timeless classic. All metal monorail view camera design, which has lasted for decades as a solid, robust and reliable work horse. This full featured 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. Plenty of front and rear movements make this a versatile tool, in the field or studio. Fitted with a nice original ground glass, this camera is an excellent choice for the first steps into LF, but will serve the pro just as well.
