$1,698.00

The Wista 45DX 4X5 is a superb, modern-design field camera and a testament to centuries-long Japanese woodworking tradition. This is the "early Zone VI" rebranded camera, which was modified by Zone VI to include a superb ultra bright ground glass/fresnel combo as well as better tripod mounting points and a few other changes. This camera is made of 400-year-old, kiln-dried cherry wood. This is an ultralight camera (~3.0lbs), making for an ideal backpacking kit.
