The Walker Titan XL 4x5 Field camera is primarily a wide angled camera with a fixed back which addresses the inevitable problem that afflicts all view cameras when used with extreme wide angle lenses, namely parallelism of the front and rear standards; critical  depth of focus declines as focal length diminishes as does the need for swings and tilts. 


The body is made from ABS using both injection moulded and machine cut parts.  As with all Walker cameras, it is finished with a very durable non-slip coating and all fittings are made from stainless steel.

The movements are simplified with rise and fall axis tilt and swing on the front with an option of having shift on the front.  The rear standard is fixed apart from focussing.  The Bellows are interchangeable.


The International/Graflok back will accommodate all standard cut-film holders plus a number of roll film holders.  The focussing screen is a one piece acrylic screen with etched surface on one side and Fresnel on the other, with a separate cover glass which has a grid pattern plus markings for roll film.


It will accommodate lenses from 35mm to 180mm, the widest on a flat panel being a Schnieder 47XL.
