4×5 self assemble camera from Standard Cameras

Drew Nikonowicz of  Standard Cameras has launched a Kickstarter  for an assemble your self 4×5 monorail camera.

‘It is affordable, lightweight, and durable, without sacrificing the rigidity and movements you would expect from a large format camera.

It is affordable, so it is easier to get started. It is lightweight, so you have more freedom to go where your photographs take you.

It is durable, so you can focus on being a photographer, not on protecting fragile and expensive gear. And because the design is modular and 3D printed, it’s incredibly fast and easy to upgrade and repair.’ Drew Nikonowicz.
