Cambo SC 4X5 Monorail Camera with Schneider 210mm 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. This is an earlier version with all metal levers and knobs. This camera is fully articulated and features all of the movements you can think of on a view camera, on both front and rear standards.
