$1,895.00 Sold Out

This camera appears to have been used very lightly and is in near immaculate condition all around.

The Tachihara 4X5 is a superb, modern-design field camera and a testament to centuries-long Japanese woodworking tradition. This camera is made of 400-year-old, kiln-dried cherry wood, finished with a super gloss surface. This is an ultralight camera (~3.2lbs), making for an ideal backpacking kit.
