Prinzdorff V5 5X7 Camera with 121mm + 210mm Lenses + 4X5 Back + Holders


This is the ultimate 5X7 field camera. The Prinzdorff was made in India for short while. This camera is made of teak wood and chrome-plated brass hardware. It is an almost identical copy of the Deardorff camera of the same era, with front swings. Most parts are interchangeable with original Deardorff parts. This camera has seen very little use, which is evident in its very nice finish and overall condition.

*5X7 back on this camera is an original Deardorff back.
