Horseman LX 45 4X5 Monorail Camera with Rodenstock 180mm F5.6 Lens + Holders


The Horseman LX is one of the most advanced 4X5 camera systems ever made. A highly modular and versatile camera system with fully geared movements, on/off axis tilts, telescoping rail and micro-geared adjustments/movements (limited only by the bellows). Most parts are interchangeable with other Horseman (and some Sinar) camera components, from any other format and product line (lens boards, standards, rails, bases etc.).
