The 8x10 version of the SV45U. Constructed entirely of quarter-sawn Honduran mahogany heartwood (SV810U), or quarter-sawn Macassar ebony heartwood (SV810UE, pictured above), each aged for at least 20 years. As with all Ebony cameras, the metal parts are made of solid titanium. The uniquely thin and supple yet durable calfskin bellows are hand-made to Ebony's specifications. The hand-strap is made of genuine cordovan leather.

Mahogany (SV810U) or ebony (SV810UE) and titanium construction: no vibration or sway, even at maximum extension. Complete stability is assured.

Asymmetrical tilts and swings replace center tilts and swings on back standard allowing perfect focus to be maintained during adjustments.
