For sale is a Calumet Wood-Field 4x5 wooden camera apparently made by Nagaoka Seisakusho. The camera is in generally good operating condition. The bellows is light-tight and supple. All movements are smooth, with none of the wiggling that is occasionally found in the older cameras. The knobs turn smoothly and the locks are firm. The ground glass is clear.

There are a few rust spots on the hardware. The lens panel is missing the bottom metal strip to hold the lens. A thin aluminum or brass strip should be easy to install. I will add a Wista Technika type Copal #0 or #1 lens board of your choice as recompense for this small missing item. Note that the Calumet lettering on the label is partly missing.

I have one of these. Do you have a source for lens boards for this camera?

This camera takes Linhof Technika type boards, of which I have many, with holes for many different size shutters. Send me a private message if you would like to buy any.
