The Busch Pressman Model C is a finely crafted 2-1/4 x 3-1/4 inch press camera manufactured by Busch Precision Camera Corporation of Chicago, Illinois during the 50's and 60's. Viewing options include a ground glass screen, an eyelevel optical viewfinder with parallax correction, and a wire-frame sports finder. This is a sturdy, precise, smoothly functioning American-made vintage camera that closes down to a compact and neat package. Engineering, materials and assembly are first-rate.

For image and perspective control, the model C features rise, shift, and tilt movements. The drop bed provides drop movement and helps control vignetting when a wide-angle lens is mounted. The lens is a Wollensak RAPAX with range stops from f4.5 to f32. The shutter speed operates between 1/400th to 1 second, with a bulb and manual setting.

If you are an avid collector, or you just love photography the way it was meant to be done, with full control of all aspects of focus and depth of field, this is the camera for you!
