Bender Photographic

Jump to: navigation, search

Bender Photographic was a maker of view cameras based in Leavenworth, Washington. Until 2008 it made camera kits for large format cameras. According to an archive of the earlier company website[1], its proprietor Jay Bender has retired from building view camera kits after 30 years, due to declining use of film cameras.

Bender also sold pinholes precision-drilled in brass shim stock for makers of homemade pinhole cameras[2].
