Nagaoka 4X5 Camera with 150mm + 210mm Lenses + Holders

$1,500.00

This Nagaoka 4X5 camera is one of the lightest and smallest field cameras ever made, at 2.6LB (1.15KG). This camera is the ideal tool for hikers and backpackers. Along with a nice set of lenses, this is a great outdoors 4X5 field camera kit. There is not much this camera cannot do, in the field or in the studio. This later model Nagaoka features various upgrades, such as rear-tracking retro focus and a more stable front standard design.

About Ilex "Acu" Lenses:

These were the worlds first ever CAD-designed lenses, made with the best possible materials available at the time. These lenses are generally overlooked gems, that offer performance superior (in pretty much every aspect) to any equivalent German or Japanese lens of the era. The innovative computer design, coupled with superb lens coatings, make these some of the best lenses made in the U.S. Not many were made before Ilex and Wollensak folded, and they are every bit as good today as they were then.
