    Since moving up to 8X10, I've decided to let go of my beloved 4X5 kit.

    1. Shen-Hao HZX 4X5-IIA Camera: I bought this camera about 2 years ago and used it for several projects. It shows some normal wear but is very very clean. It works perfectly of course. This is a great sturdy camera with ample movements. It comes with the Shen-Hao compendium lens shade, and the wide angle bag bellows. I'll also include a Shen-Hao #0 lens board, and a BTZS 4X5 focusing cloth. I keep the whole kit in a Lowepro Commercial AW camera bag. This is a large and very strong model that is now discontinued. It looks very nice and is great for carrying the kit in the field, along with a light meter, 8-10 film holders, and odds and ends. The bag cost me $250 new. With a comparable camera bag, this kit would retail for about $1600. I'd sell for $850

    2. 4X5 Film holders. I have about 30 holders, all very clean, and always stored and carried in individual ziplock bags, assorted brands, $6 each.

    3. Schneider 90mm f5.6 Super Angulon in Copal 0. This is my standard lens. 75% of my 4X5 exposures were taken with this lens. It's in great condition, and works perfectly. I've tried the other major brands at this focal length and always returned to this one for the sharpness and contrast. The shutter works as it should. Comes mounted on a lens board. I'm asking $400.

    4. Schneider 75mm f5.6 MC Super Angulon in Copal 0. Not much to say about this one. It's beautiful, works perfectly, and is incredibly sharp and contrasty. I used it when I needed a little more field of view for smaller interiors. I'm asking $375. Both lenses cover 4X5 with movements.

    The buyer pays shipping and PayPal fees (if any). If someone wants the whole kit shipping is FREE (only for Canada and the US). It would even be better to ship the camera with lenses and some holders right in the camera bag for safety.

    Would you be interested in just selling the camera and nothing else? I don't need the film holders, bag, etc. I will pay for shipping and professional packaging by FedEx.

    ziyanglai, by camera alone do you also mean the bag bellows and compendium lens hood? The compendium lens hood fits into a metal plate that's screwed into the top of the front standard...
