Graflex Crown Graphic 4X5 Camera with 135mm Lens + Holders


This Graflex camera is as light and compact as an Intrepid 4X5 camera, but offers infinitely more stability, ease of use and reliability over time. The Crown Graphic can also carry most small/medium-size lenses inside the closed camera body, making this an ideal large format backpacking tool, and very fast/easy to set up.
