The camera is based on Polaroid 3x4 folding camera and the lens range is 120mm-150mm.
Rangefinder focus and we have lenses for you to choose and you can supply your own lens
as well. The camera can be opened in one second and with practice one can quickly frame,
focus, and shoot in a few seconds.
It's a handheld camera, not recommend to use with a tripod. But there is a tripod hole at the
bottom of the camera for special situations.

There are few things customer can request or provide to suit their own needs.
1. Lens: You can choose lenses from 120mm to 150mm focal length, avoid Planar F2.8 or
F3.5 lens, because the lens is huge and can't fit on the camera nicely.

factory installed Ebony.
3. Hot shoe can be added.
