Cambo SC 4X5 Camera with 135mm 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, all metal version, with all metal levers and knobs.

Camera is fully articulated and features all of the movements you can think of in a view camera, both front and rear standards:

- Rise
- Fall
- Tilt
- Swing
- Shift

Camera condition:

Camera is used and shows normal signs of use, with scuffs and marks throughout.
Bellows is flexible and light-tight tested.
Focus rack moves smoothly throughout, on both front and rear standards.
All knobs lock tightly, no issues to report.
Holders are newer plastic units in nice shape.
Back easily mounted in vertical or horizontal positions.
Original gridded ground glass clean and clear.
Some bubble levels are missing/dry.

Yamasaki (branded as PRINZ) 135mm F4.5:

135mm is moderate wide/normal angle view on 4x5 (similar to a 35mm lens on 35mm cameras). Excellent, versatile lens with clean, multi-coated glass. Good working shutter, fires nicely on all speeds.
