Monster Camera

Woah. This camera weighs a whopping 3.5 lbs and it was once called a portable.  It’s bigger than the Hellraiser boxed set and it’s portable.  It’s a Japanese made TLR camera from the early 70’s on into the 80’s.  It’s a brick.  It’s a mechanical monster —no batteries here folks.  Rack-and-pinion focusing, with a bellows, gears, knobs, cranks, levers and a cavernous housing for holding 120 medium format film.  Not a bad find. They don’t make ’em like they used to.
