Toko Nikki II 4X5 Field Camera with 135mm + 90mm F5.6 Lenses + Holders
This is a beautiful, modern, wooden field camera, ideal for hikers and backpackers. The Nikki II offers a compact and lightweight design, made of 400-year-old Japanese cherry wood. This rare camera model was made by the Nagaoka camera workshop in Tokyo, for the TOKO international design house. The camera borrows the best possible features from three similar cameras of the era (latest versions of the Wista DX, Tachihara and Nagaoka). Additionally, this camera features a sturdier build, longer bellows extension (360mm) and geared retro focus, all while still maintaining a feather weight of around 3LBS.

Nikon MC W 135mm F5.6:
The 135mm is a moderately wide/normal-angle of view lens on 4X5 (equivalent to a 40mm on 35mm format cameras). Excellent, compact, sharp lens. Good working shutter and clean glass.
Schneider Super Angulon 90mm F5.6:
The 90mm is a wide-angle of view lens on 4X5 (equivalent to 28mm on 35mm format cameras). This top of the line lens offers massive coverage for some extreme movements. Other than some minor "Schneider-itis" (which does not affect image quality), this lens has clean glass and a good working shutter.
