The Bulldog 4x5 Self-Assembly Camera Kit is a large format field camera that is sold completely disassembled, because it's more fun that way.

It a is wholly satisfying and rewarding experience to construct one's own camera, as well as being an affordable entry into the world of large format photography. The Bulldog 4x5 accepts sheet film holders, roll film backs, and instant film backs that adhere to the international standard. It uses 50-125mm focal length lenses, and the kit also includes a 0.5 mm pinhole for lensless photography. The front standard is designed to hold Linhof Technika-type lensboards.

The tool requirements are minimal; some gluing, sandpapering, painting or staining and some light drilling are all the requirements to complete the camera.
