Tachihara 8X10 Camera with Fuji 250mm F6.7 Lens + Holder


The Tachihara 8X10 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, as well as brand new high-tech bellows, this is an ideal 8X10 field kit.
