    Gandolfi Variant MDF 4X5
    This folding 4X5 is made in the UK by one of the world's oldest camera makers. The MDF material that is used to make the body is a marine product that produces a waterproof and rigid structural frame. This frame is outfitted with aluminum rails, locks and slides completing a finely crafted tool.

    From the moment that you unfold the camera the quality hits you. All functions are smooth and consistant with stops and detents where you would expect them. This is truly a precision instrument that gets out of the way and allows you to release your creativity.
