This is a great working condition MPP Micro Press large fromat LF 4x5 5x4 camera, which works well and exposes beautifully. This comes with an in lens shutter as well as the focal plane shutter in the camera body. I don't think I have seen a better version of this camera or that of its generation in a long time. This camera has a Graflex/Graflok back with the spring loaded hood and viewing glass, so you can use most Graflex compatible film back such as Polaroid 545 back, normal sheet film or grafmatic back (no backs included). The rangefinder is horizontally alighted well as shown in photos with view through viewing glass matched focus on rangefinder (the rangefinder photos so one in focus and one out of focus deliberately to show contrast). The rangefinder could do with a vertical alignment but I have never had a problem with this as photo is done using the horizontal plane.
The condition of the camera is used but it is in beautiful (almost collector) condition and functioning very well . There is of course a bit of dust in the lens but this is normal for any camera lens of any age. The shutter timings for the lens sound dead on and the shots come out well exposed. The cloth focal plane shutter also seems to be working nicely.
This is the perfect way to get into large format film photography. ( Also M.M.P 5X4 FILM BACK 6x9 available look my other adds)
