4x5" Large format

          • If you already know a thing or two about pinhole photography or large format film photography in general this is the camera for you. With the increased film size the images this camera creates are of better “quality”* and usually look sharper. The ONDU 4X5” Large Format camera is compatible with the Polaroid 545 back which accepts the NEW-55 FILM as well as the standard 4X5” film holders available from the web and retail shops worldwide. 

            The camera has a fixed focal length of 65mm and a pretty wide angle of view of 100° which means that it will take some getting used to while framing your first shots. To make this easier we have engraved vertical and horizontal field of view engraving lines as well as two leveling bulbs again vertical and horizontal, the same goes for tripod mounts, one vertical one horizontal.

            The 4x5” standard film back is secured to the camera via magnets and wooden film retaining clips while the much heavier Polaroid 545 back requires screwing knobs to hold it in place during exposures. All large formats are hand painted inside with a black matte acrylic paint and sealed with black flocking material to prevent any light leaks from entering the camera.
