    Up for sale is a very clean Calumet Wide Field camera. This wide field camera will take wide angle lenses on flat lens boards and give you more movements than you will have IC to take advantage.

    The ground glass is original as well as the bellows. I checked the bellows and there were a few pinholes that I repaired with liquid tape and it worked very well.

    Comes with Copal 0 lens board and a Calumet Ground Glass Protector both are not pictured.

    All movements work as intended and would make a great dedicated wide angle camera.

    I would like to get $150net + shipping for this very clean example.

    Not a great camera for portraits as it has a fairly limited bellows draw.

    These are great architectural cameras though. I had one of these throughout the 90's, it was a great bombproof camera that I took all over.
    I could use a 65mm on a flat board...!
    (I'd be thinking about it if I hadn't just splurged on an unnecessary Arca Swiss...)
