Shen Hao FCL810-A 8X10 Field Camera with Schneider 305mm F9 Lens + Holder


The FCL810-A is Shen Hao's answer to the E.G. Phillips Explorer camera design: an ultra-lightweight camera, with extreme flexibility, rigidity, and an extremely long bellows draw. Setup is fast and easy, due to state-of-the-art features such as separate locking mechanisms, positive center detentes and self adjusting/zeroing struts. This is an excellent, modern camera kit with a high-end, modern lens.

Schneider G Claron 305mm F9:

305mm is a normal-angle of view on 8X10 (similar to a 50mm lens on 35mm format cameras). This is a modern, sharp, multi-coated lens. Massive coverage/image circle on this lens. The glass is clean, with exception of a >1mm nick on rear element coating (will not affect image quality in any way). Shutter fires nicely on all speeds.
