History: Nagaoka workshop still makes wooden LF cameras, the master there is 82 years old now and is the last wooden LF craftsman in Japan.

Here is an article about the man himself (sadly in Japanese):

The wood is seasoned cherry wood and the metall parts are chromed brass. It offers almost any movements you might need including: swing, risea and tilt. It also offers an international back for 4x5 plateholders, which can be used in landscape and also portrait mode.

The camera comes with 2 fitting Fidelity Elite 4x5 plateholders.

Condition: This specimen comes in a really great near mint condition. It seems it was stored away safely for quite some time or never used at all. The bellows look good and lighttight, the maximum extension is somewhere around 30cm (12").

The camera comes with an undrilled lensboard. If you buy a lens form my collection for this camera i can adapt the lens to it for free and combine shipping costs.
