Horseman 45HD

The Horseman 45HD is my first “modern” large format camera. It is remarkably similar to the medium format Horseman 980 that I already own. I use view cameras widely for landscape and architectural photography, but was struggling to find a lens wide enough on medium format.

Enter the 45HD – it takes all the same accessories as the 980 but gives a wider angle of view for the same lens. I think we’re going to get on very well.
