Graflex Speed Graphic 4X5 camera with Kodak Ektar 127mm lens + Holders + FILM #B


This Graflex camera is one of the lightest and most compact 4X5 cameras, but offers excellent stability, ease of use and reliability over time. The Speed 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.

The Speed graphic features a built in curtain shutter, for use with any "barrel" lenses or other shutterless lenses.

This camera is compatible with all conventional 4X5 film holders, all polaroid backs and roll film backs that slide under the glass.

It may also take any other lens mounted on a Graflex lensboard.
