    The Gowlandflex had parallax correction by means of a cam, matched to the focal length of the lens, that tilted the top section based on the focal distance. I'm not sure if the Cambo 4x5" TLR had this.

    It has a very accurate parallax correction gear that compensates it. I shot close up portraits with absolute accuracy
