Calumet Cambo 45N SC 4x5 camera with Schneider 135mm lens + fresnel + holders
The Cambo SC (Super Cambo) system is a highly modular and easy to use LF system. Most parts are interchangeable with other SC cameras from any other format, including knobs, lens boards, standards, rails, bases etc'. The SC system was in production for more then 40 years which makes SC system lens boards and other parts cheap and easy to find.
