Nagaoka 4X5 Field Camera with 90mm + 135mm + 210mm Lenses + Holders

$1,750.00

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-geared retro focus and a more stable front standard design.
