Ciao ragazzi!

After some weeks i’m ready to show you the new X camera 4×5″ by StenopeiKa, your new super light professional camera!

Yes!!! because with its 1.5 kg is one of the lightest large format cameras on the market, plus with its very small size 23x20x7.5 cm make it one of the most easily transportable, in fact I use it in a bag for Ipad!!!

So, I’m very excited about this presentation, I worked a lot on this camera, I had it tested before Silvano Magnone (here the link to the video of the trial), and to Giulio Speranza, and only after passing these two tests I decided to present it!

Ciao Ragazzi

After many requests i make an adapter to use the Linhof lens board on Hyper camera 4×5 https://www.stenopeika.com/hyper-camera-4×5-the-new-affordable-folding-camera-297e/
