4X5 Cameras

Click the photo to see my most recent 4×5 work.

One of a kind hand-held large format rangefinders.

New55 instant films are here! A replacement for the discontinued professional Polaroid 55 single sheet 4×5 films with instant printable negatives.

What better to shoot new, fresh and spectacular instant 4×5 films than with a camera that started it all more than 60 years ago!

Without a doubt these are the most versatile camera systems available utilizing the International Standard 4×5 Graflok. Superbly lightweight and compact compared to most other 4×5 Graflok systems. Go from focusing directly on ground glass in the studio, to hand holding it on the street.

To get an idea of how a handheld large format camera compares:

  • Polaroid Model 250 Land Camera – 2lb 10oz (1.19kg)
  • Un-modified Polaroid 110A/110B – 4lb 8oz (2.05kg)
  • Converted Polaroid 110A/B 4×5 Compact Graflok – 3lb 11oz (1.67kg)
    (4lbs 8oz with focusing panel ground glass attached)
  • Converted Polaroid 110A/B 4×5 Compact Body & Graflok – 3lb 6oz (1.53kg)

Utilizing the standard 4×5 system means that every single 4×5 film back and attachment will fit. If its made for 4×5 cameras it also fits on these conversions.

Shoot 100% full frame 4×5 sheets and be able to switch to 3×4 instant packfilm or 120/220 rollfilms easily. All lenses available for these cameras cover 4×5 without vignetting even wide open! If you are interested in swappable lenses please see my custom lensmount page.
