Meridian 45A

Jump to: navigation, search

The Meridian 45A was a nicely-made, metal press camera from Meridian, circa 1947. A notable feature which quickly IDs the 45A is its round lens boards. There is a provision for back tilt by using locking struts, as seen on some Linhof cameras (or later, the Mamiya Press).
