For sale is a Japanese whole plate camera with a 5x7 back in excellent operating condition. All movements are smooth and the locks are firm. The focusing screen is clean. The bellows is light-tight and supple. The back has a bail arm so that holders can be inserted and removed easily. The bellows extends from a minimum of 100mm to a maximum of 490mm. The lens board is a simple piece of wood, ~105mm square. There are some minor scuffs and marks. The camera weighs only 2.9 kilos, about the same as a metal 4x5 field camera.

If you want use this camera for whole plate, I have a Rittreck Hope back for film and a bookform style back for plates at an additional cost. The Rittreck back is shown in the last photo. I have film and plate holders for both these backs. I also have Fidelity 5x7 and half plate film holders (with the same external dimensions as 5x7 film holders) for this camera.
