    Looking into buying this body, no lens.
    WIll as standard film holder, i.e., a 4x5 fidelity, fit this?
    Thank you much.

    Yes, standard holders will work. I had one of these Calumet cameras when I first started LF. It will do anything you need it to do as far as movements. The rotating back is nice also.

    Yep, standard 4x5 holders. It was my first view camera also. Looks like it's in very good shape. I think one of my arms is longer than the other from hauling it around, even 30 years later. You can't find a better starter view camera. It does it all.

    Hey that is a modern camera! :smile:

    The "T-distance" has been standard for quite a while. My 1920s Century works with modern plasitc holders.

    If the price is right I'd buy it. 135mm and 150mm lenses are pretty common and should not be hard to find.
