Kodak Master View 8X10 Camera with Wray 12" 305mm F10 Lens + Holder

$2,750.00

This is the ultimate all metal 8X10 field camera, and one of the smallest folding 8X10 cameras ever made. It features nearly limitless movements, and at the same time is one of most rigid and durable camera designs ever made. Made of high-grade magnesium alloy, this all metal camera features amazing craftsmanship and an ever-lasting design. The Kodak Master View is one of the most usable/versatile 8X10 field cameras available. This camera has recently been gone through, with all parts cleaned, lubricated and adjusted. Brand new bellows have been installed.
