This camera is a 4x5 field camera and seems to have a fair amount of movements. The only thing that is missing that I would like to have is front shift. The maximum bellows extension is about 12 inches.

I have put a bunch of pictures of it in the Non Gallery Pictures area.

Please take and look at the pics and then put your suggestions under this thread.

Thanks,

Eric

if it doesn't have rear rise, I would say it is a Calumet Woodfield.

It is unusual to have the rear focus. If the bellows goes out to 14" with the rear extended, I'd guess it is a Toko. No, not Toyo, but TOKO. I had one in the 80s, sold it and then bought another in the 90s. A friend has one, too. They were all different colors of stain, but the hardware was the same. There were a couple that had 16" bellows, but very rare. I'll give it a closer look.

I have been thinking that a lot of these Japanese field cameras are made in the same factory and just have different name plates put on them.
