Build your own fully-functional large format camera with our Standard 4x5 Kit. This unique experience allows you to see firsthand how a 4x5 works inside and out. When you finish, you will be left with the pride of having built your own camera and a better sense of how to use it.
Whether you’re brand new to large format or have been shooting for years, there is plenty to love about The Standard 4×5. It is a simple 4×5 with the features photographers need most. With anodized aluminum, Carbon Fiber, and 3D printed parts, the camera is lightweight and durable while maintaining the rigidity and movements you would expect from a large format camera. The camera body can quickly detach from the rail, making it compact and easy to transport. Its compatibility with various film and Graflok backs allow you to explore shooting smaller formats, polaroid, and more.
The camera is designed with upgrades and modifications in mind – it is segmented into several sections that can be independently altered without affecting the entire system. This also means that repairs are quick and easy. So the next time your kid uses your camera for their science fair project (it’s a volcano), you won’t need a brand new camera.
Our black bellows are constructed in-house with durable, water-resistant nylon and synthetic materials. They have a draw from 70 to 300 mm. The bellows are an independent component of the camera that can be swapped or replaced using only a 2.5mm hex key.
