Lotus View Camera manufactures lightweight field cameras made from cherry wood, high-quality metal, and high-tech material. Available from 4x5" up to 20x24" as well as in metric sizes.
Looking at Lotus View Rapid Field Cameras weight, handling, and focussing possibilities are ideally balanced, which makes them equally suitable for work inside and outside the studio.
Most important features:
The movements are geared by racks and drives made of black Delrin™.
For the sizes 4x5", 4x10", 5x7", 8x10", 12x20", and 14x17" reducing frames or panoramic backs are available for switching to smaller or panoramic size.
The ground glass frames for landscape or portrait format are interchangeable (excluding panoramic sizes for which we recommend our Vertical Mounting Device).
All wooden parts are made from cherry wood, we don't use rain forest wood.
Metal parts are made from powder coated or black anodized aluminium or from brass.
Due to the shape and texture of all knobs and levers they are very
pleasant to handle.
We deliver all our cameras with one lensboard included.
