View Full Version : Ultra wide angle lenses on Field cameras?
What are your experiences with using ultrawide angle lenses on field cameras? Us ing a recessed Linhof Technika board I was able to use a 47mm (non-XL) Super Ang ulon on a Canham DLC. I did not check for movements, although it looked as thoug h some rise/fall or lateral shift (as well as tilts) is possible, as the lens di dn't produce a large enough image circle when focused at infinity to cover 4x5. waht are your experiences with different cameras & lens combinations? Has anybod y tried the 45mm or 35mm Apo Grandagon lenses?

I did manage to use a Fuji 65mm on a 5 X 7 Wisner tech, but it weren't easy! It covered stopped down, but I didn't use adjustments as the camera was pretty well tied in knots anyway. It was a pretty "straight-forward" shot as such things go.

I use a 58mmXL on a Wisner Pocket Expedition. Works fine with the regular bellows. Just covers 4x5 with minor movements. Can get about 10mm of rise using the sliding lensboard. I agree with the previous response. When you get this wide, most shots are pretty straight on. Minor tilts and slight rise are all I ever use on it. The DOF takes care of most problems

We have people using lenses as short as the 35mm Apo Grandagon on the 45 Technikardan with the SPECIAL recessed Linhof board for the 47 and wider lenses.
There isn't just 1 Linhof recessed technika type boa
