Busch Optical Mfg. Co., also known as Busch Precision Camera Corporation was a camera maker in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The company was known for its versatile press cameras. Characteristic metal bodied Busch press cameras provided an optical finder and a big sports finder for image composition, and most models had also a rangefinder.

These folding bed view cameras had movable lens boards and accomodated professional flash photography. At least one model was sold under the brand name of a retailer. The cameras came equipped with fine lenses and shutters. For example the Tower Press camera with Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar lens in fast Synchro-Compur shutter.
