 Embracing simplicity and elegance, Primer cameras feature a clean design, free from redundant elements. Each component, from wood particles to rails, screws, and buttons, is meticulously designed for both functionality and aesthetics.

3. Innovative Solutions:

While rooted in time-tested design principles, Primer cameras integrate innovative features. A groundbreaking collaboration with Zebra Dry plates introduces a seamlessly fitting square holder, requiring no adjustments. The custom screw-focus mechanism and tracks enable infinitely precise movements.

4. Versatile Plate Compatibility:

 The Primer 8×10|10×10 camera supports both 10×10 inch plates on the 8×10 camera and 12×12 inch plates on the 10×12 camera. This is made possible by the introduction of new standard holders for square plates in partnership with Zebra.

Engineered to effortlessly accommodate heavy lenses, the Primer camera can bear the weight of lenses exceeding 5 kg. The 169x169mm lens plate provides a stable foundation for your photographic equipment.

Leveraging top-quality German linear guides and rails, Primer cameras ensure smooth and precise movements, guaranteeing a seamless photography experience.

 Beyond durability and design, the Primer camera is designed for intuitive use. With all movements facilitated, except back standard shift and rise/fall, photographers enjoy a user-friendly interface that enhances their creative process.
