Toko (Nagaoka/Tachihara) 4X5 field camera with 90mm+135mm lenses + holders

$1,385.00



This rare camera model was made by the Nagaoka camera workshop in Tokyo for the TOKO international design house. The camera borrows the best possible features from three similar cameras of the era (latest versions of the Wista DX, Tachihara and Nagaoka) and adds a sturdier build, while still maintaining a feather weight of around 3LBS.

It is a beautiful, modern folding field wooden field camera, an ideal tool for hikers and backpackers. The NTOKO offers a compact and light-weight design made of amazing 400 year old Japanese cherry wood and various modern improvements such as teflon washers and an ultra bright ground glass/fresnel lens combo (by WISTA/TACHIHARA).
