Nagaoka 4x5 Field Camera

The folding wood field camera is still used by nature and landscape photographers. The cameras are very light in weight and fold into a compact package perfect for backpacking. The large format 4 x 5 inch film yields a large high quality negative perfect for the production of art photographs. The Nagaoka is virtually identical to the Tachihara 4 x 5 field camera with the exception of brass fittings rather than chrome plate.

Large format cameras can accept a variety of lenses which are mounted on a removable lens board.
