Nagaoka MK II 4X5 Camera with Schneider 90mm + 135mm Lenses + Holders


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. There is not much this camera cannot do, in the field or in the studio. Along with a nice set of lenses, this is a great outdoors 4X5 camera kit. This later model Nagaoka MK II features various upgrades, such as front/rear swings and a cut-out, to save weight and allow one to carry a lens mounted while the body is folded.
