Pre-Owned Wista 45N 4×5″ Metal Large Format Camera


Pre-Owned Wista 45N 4×5″ Metal Large Format Camera. This camera has been left with us by a long-standing and trusted client.

Highly regarded by large format photography fans, Wista’s range of 4×5″ metal field cameras are tough and robust cameras that fold down into a compact size. With heavy duty body casting and metal body panels. It’s a clever and sensible design with a rotating rear so that you can change from Landscape to Portrait by activating a lever. Opening the front panel, allows the focusing rail and front standard to be moved into position.  Focusing, shift, rise and fall are controlled from the front. The front standard is suitably heavy duty and capable of carrying heavy lenses rigidly. Everything can be locked tightly by either knobs or lever. It’s also fitted with a chunky carrying handle.

Opening the rear of the camera exposes the focusing screen but also reveals the built in hood. The hood provides a useful degree of light shading. though a dark cloth may still be needed in very bright light. The ground glass screen is gridded as well.

It accepts Linhof/Wista lens panels. The panel release catch is suitable obvious and heavy duty. It’s spring loaded and lenses can be mounted and removed with ease and confidence.

The Wista 45N is the earliest version of the Wista metal folding cameras and does not have swing. However depending on use that will not be an issue for architectural photographers. It’s in very good condition. There are signs of usage and wear on the body work. All the controls still engage and lock perfectly. All the movements can be locked tightly. The leatherette body panels are in great condition, a testament to the quality of Wista design and manufacturing that decades later, they are not peeling or frayed. The focusing screen does have signs of scratches however.
