A rare chance to own a new old stock (demo unit) custom ordered Tachihara 4X5 camera.

The Chrome hardware over ebony wood finish was only available as a special custom order from the factory, and only a handful of cameras with this finish ever made.

This is a new old stock or demo unit, which was hiding on a back shelve at a camera dealer for years, and is a rare chance to own this superb camera in such amazing condition.

The Tachihara 4X5 is a superb, modern-design field camera and a testament to centuries-long Japanese woodworking tradition. This camera is made of 400-year-old, kiln-dried cherry wood. This is an ultralight camera (~3.2lbs), making for an ideal backpacking kit.
