The ultimate field camera, made of cherry wood and aluminum. Handcrafted to perfection in Marion, MA, USA, by master camera builder Ron Wisner with precision and tolerances that defy belief.

This camera is one the last made by Wisner, with a custom flat finish and custom black toned bellows.

This camera packs every advanced feature Wisner cameras are known for, including the patented off axis geared tilts on both front and rear, rear rise, and a geared front rise/fall micro adjustment.
