This is a 4x5 inch large format camera system that I put together. Basically, this is the least expensive 4x5 camera you can get. I got the rail, the standards, the bellows, and 8 sheet film holders for $100. This is by no means a precision instrument, but it does have all of the lens and film plane movements (tilt, rise, shift) too allow for perspective control. Shooting polaroids and and blasting shots with the Norman strobes while this was mounted to the giant bogen was fun. The 90mm angulon is a kind of wide you can only get from large format. The front element of the 210mm can be removed to make it a telephoto.
