Graflex Crown Graphic 4X5 Camera with 162mm F4.5 Lens + Holders


A "stripped-down", factory-made Crown Graphic, originally sold without a rangefinder. This is a classic 4X5 camera with a Graflok back. This Graflex camera is as light and compact as an Intrepid 4X5 camera, but offers more stability, ease of use and reliability over time. It can also carry most small/medium-size lenses inside the closed camera body, making this an ideal large format backpacking tool.
