    This outfit includes my custom Super Compact version of the Cambo Wide frame.
    Made of hi-tech acetal plastic, I've eliminated the handle, but added a vertical tripod socket.
    It directly accepts any Cambo Wide lens panel and/or Horseman roll film holder.
    The compact acetal frame is configured for roll film/viewfinder only (no ground glass).
    I made a frosted acrylic viewing screen (AKA: ground glass) for composing with lens shift/rise.
    Unfortunately, I sat on it. Grrrrrrr. I'll post a photo if you'd like...
    I've carried this camera through the cities of Europe since '97 and will miss it sorely.

    The 75mm f:5.6 Super Angulon is clean. The helix focus, the shutter, and the diaphragm work smoothly.
    The Cambo frame with it's Graflock back are almost "like new", I set it aside unused after I made the cloned acteal frame.
    The viewfinder is clean but has some internal dust. The 6x12 mask is included.

    The Horseman holders are identical, one has markings for use with 220 film (14 exposures).
    They function flawlessly, but show the usual burnished edges found on used equipment.
    The 220 markings are removable (adhesive tape), the external counter wheel slips off of the rear holder.

    • Package #1:
    Cambo Wide frame, with Graflock back (for 4x5 cut film holders).
    75mm f:5.6 Super Angulon lens on Cambo Wide 750 lens panel.
    Horseman 6x12 roll film holder (your choice):
    Viewfinder & 612 mask
    Package price: $1850
    Opional: the second Horseman 6x12 roll film holder (if available): add $450

    • Package #2:
    Cloned acetal Cambo Wide frame: $275
    No lens, no viewfinder.
    Opional: the second Horseman 6x12 roll film holder (if available): $450

    ••• Package #3 Early Bird Special:
    Everything: $2475

    All prices + shipping (USPS Priority, Insured).

    Cambo 75mm Examples

    There seems to be a preference for 47mm & 58mm lenses for Cambo Wide cameras.

    When I bought this camera I deliberately chose a focal length that had a higher probability of usefulness for my style of photography.
    75mm gives a "normal" image rendition... (75mm is "normal" for 6x6 cameras– Hassleblad/Rollieflex, etc.), the extra width of 6x12 gives me a wider view at "normal" perspective. Here are a couple of photos showing how the 75mm lens on a 6x12 format works in an urban setting as well as a broad landscape setting...

    Here are two more examples showing how the 75mm lens records subjects on 6x12 format.
    The cemetery Halifax was shot on Konica 750 infrared film.
    The street in France was shot using the 220 modified back with FP4+
