Nagaoka 4X5 Field Camera with 150mm + 75mm Lenses + Holders (#2)


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 retro movement (on front and rear standards), improved hardware & more.

Rodenstock Sironar 150mm F5.6 (branded as Caltar Type S):

The 150mm is a normal-angle of view on 4X5 (equivalent to a 50mm on 35mm format cameras). Shutter fires nicely on all speeds. Front element has a minor (~2mm) coating blemish along one edge (will not affect image quality). Otherwise, glass is clean.

Super W Komura 75mm F6.3:

The 75mm is a super wide-angle of view on 4X5 (equivalent to a 24mm on 35mm format cameras). This is Komura's version of the venerable Zeiss Boigon (the most laterally corrected wide-angle lens ever made). This is an ideal architecture or interior photography lens. Front element has a coating blemish, which while looks "ugly", will not affect image quality in any way. Shutter fires nicely on all speeds
