Tachihara 5X7 Camera with Schneider 120mm + 210mm Lenses + Holders

$2,500.00

The Tachihara 5X7 is superb, modern design field camera, and a testament to centuries-long Japanese wood working tradition. This camera is made of 400-year-old, kiln-dried cherry wood, and finished in an amazing "Japanica"-encapsulating resin, creating an incredible high-gloss finish. Coupled with the best ground glass and fresnel available, this is an ideal 5X7 field kit.
