K.B. Canham JMC 8X10 Field Camera with Fuji W 300mm F5.6 Lens + Holder


This is the single most advanced camera design ever manufactured. The all metal JMC is made of aircraft-grade machined aluminum, and offers the ideal combination of versatility, sturdiness and lightness. There is nothing this camera compares to. Every single aspect of its design is unique and innovative. This camera is capable of massive extension, yet folds down to one of the smallest 8X10 field camera packages available. Features such as the rear geared focus and precision movements make this camera a pleasure to use. The fresnel/ground glass combo are some of the brightest and sharpest available.
