23S

 
23S

A lightweight multipurpose view camera of the non-folding type with extensive movements and a wide range of usable lenses. The 23S is hand-made from 20-year-old quarter-sawn Macassar ebony heartwood and solid titanium, and features extremely supple calfskin bellows and a genuine cordovan leather hand-strap. The unique bellows design allows full movements with wide lenses without causing any bellows shadow.

Ebony and titanium construction: no vibration or sway, even at maximum extension. Complete stability is assured.
