CHAMONIX 810AV ALPINIST Vertical Format 8x10" View Camera
Regular price $5,164.24 USD
The 810 AlpinistIn response to customer requests and user feedback, Chamonix has designed the 810 Alpinist, an ultralight, horizontal-only view camera. By "ultralight" Chamonix means that the Alpinist is only 57% the weight of the 810V model. The 810 Alpinist is for the photographer that shoots mostly in the "landscape orientation," but of course, a vertical composition can be made simply by turning the tripod head 90º to the side.
The metal parts of the 810 Alpinist are anodized aluminum with black finish. The wood is used.
The 810 Alpinist view camera uses a Sinar-type lens board.
The 810 Alpinist is crafted with the same attention to fit and finish as the 810V model. Because of the very high standards of the craftsmen, a model run can take months from start of wood preparation, as described for the 810V view camera, to final assembly.
810 Alpinist cameras come in horizontal only and vertical only models.
