Generic photos - kit will be the same or NICER
Each kit comes with a lens cap and lens shade (original or after market).

This Graflex camera is one of the lightest and most compact 4X5 cameras, but offers excellent stability, ease of use and reliability over time. The Speed Graphic can also carry most small/medium-size lenses inside the closed camera body, making this an ideal large format backpacking tool, and very fast/easy to set up.

The Speed graphic features a built in curtain shutter, for use with any "barrel" lenses or other shutterless lenses.

Coupled with the famous Kodak Aero Ektar lens with its super bright and wide fixed F2.5 aperture, this lens offers amazing shallow depth of field and focus control.

This camera is compatible with all conventional 4X5 film holders, all polaroid backs and most roll film backs that slide under the glass (not compatible with graflock only type devices as this camera lacks graflock sliders), will take any lens mounted on a Graflex board.
