Graflex Super Speed Graphic 4X5 Camera with 135mm 1/1000th speed Lens + Holders

$759.00 Sold Out

The Super Speed was Graflex's last iteration of their long line of folding field cameras, featuring an all metal design with a revised front standard which enables swings and bi-directional tilts.

Combined with the "Graflex 1000" shutter system this is the fastest large format leaf shutter ever made along with a superb Rodenstock 135mm lens.

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 Super 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. Entire kit, with lens, weighs under 8LBS.
