    Here is something that will appeal to those who value portability above weight.

    This is a Hasemi wooden camera in good condition. I believe the Nagaoka and Anba Ikeda are comparable models. There are a few scuffs and scratches on the woodwork, probably from storing it, rather than using it. The camera looks to be very little used. The chrome plating is untarnished, and the bellows is as new. What is wrong is that the front support struts have become unstuck from the base. This is the only problem with the camera. Find a way to stick them back on, and you're in business.

    The bellows extends to 300mm, though being a wooden camera, you really don't want to stress it too much with a heavy lens. It takes standard Technika type lensboards - no odd sizes required. The rear has a nice bail back, and has a glass protector. And the bonus is a well-made sliding back that takes Mamiya RB backs. Can't standardize any more than that! Also included are two very nice wooden 4x5 film holders that have a metal backing inside, rather than wood, making them easier to keep clean.

    And if you want any lenses to go with the camera, I have those too.

    33,000 JPY, (~300 Euro/400 USD) including worldwide EMS shipping and Paypal fees.

    Please email or PM me if you are interested.

    Thanks for looking,
