    (another) 4x5 Wide Camera similar the Linhof Technar or Sinar Handy

    Here it the second wide camera made with the other salvaged Cambo standard (the earlier 65mm wide camera that I posted was made from the front standard). This has a 65mm helical mounted lens on a spacer then mounted to the lens board. The board also holds the hot shoe bracket for the removable 21mm finder. A permanently mounted left hand grip is clear of both front and rear standards and robust enough to carry the entire camera via shoulder strap. This camera also has a Bosscreen which came with a fresnel but in all honesty, the focus seemed to pop better w/o out the fresnel so I kept it off. The only thing needed to finish it off is the Cambo folding focusing hood (part number C-929) to replace the ground glass protector and and make focusing in daylight a bit easier. Although both the 90 degree and straight Cambo magnifiers work on the Graflok back. I tracked down an old school Arca Swiss plate and mounted in horizontal to the camera body so you didn't have to rotate the Arca clamp if you are shooting digital and 4x5 together.
