  4. Re: 210mm G-Claron Cells - confused or not... ?

    Thanks, returned for a refund
  5. Re: 210mm G-Claron Cells - confused or not... ?

    Thank you for all your insightful answers.

    Outside diameter of the rear element group is 58mm.

    The engraving is definitely 210mm. There are no markings at all on the rear cells at all.

    The...
  6. 210mm G-Claron Cells - confused or not... ?

    I purchased this lens from ebay to take the rear cell and replace my shuttered version which has some residual cleaning marks internally. The rear cells are quite different and all the other 210mm...
  7. Re: Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    Thanks for your input, interestingly I have decided to keep a narrower set. 80/110/150/203/300 in shuttered lenses and a 350/460 barrels with the luc shutter. This is a nice small kit with coverage...
  8. Re: Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    Thanks for your considered responses and not mocking the question. 10x8 has done something funny to my photo head - its become much more about the emotion and the character in my work and part of...
  9. Re: Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    I am a landscape man predominantly taking main inspiration from the likes of Dykinga and Cornish. Transitioning from colour velvia to b&w at the moment and recently moved up format to 10x8 to focus...
  10. Re: Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    I perhaps should have added that >95% of the time I take out a 3 lens kit unless a specific project is being shot, for 10x8 its often only one lens.
  11. Lens rationalisation - forum as a sounding board please

    Over the years I have shot 2x3, 5x4, whole plate and 10x8 and as a result have ended up with an odd mix of lenses which I could do with rationalising down to a set that I use. There isn't a bad lens...

  15. Re: Whole Plate film holders: expensive, nonstandard, and...available?

    I am in uk & have a spare Kodak wp back and some holders which are sat in a cupboard gathering dust at the moment. Not sure what they are worth but pm if interested.
  16. Re: The film holder nightmare we all dread and what to do

    Elastic or rubber bands work pretty well. Put one on when first exposed, second when both.
  17. Suggestions for 400mm-500mm lens for copal 3 shutter

    I am looking for a cheapish barrel lens that will fit into a copal 3 shutter without modification. Needs to be useable on 10x8. I currently have a 480mm Nikkor with a front fitted Luc shutter but it...

    Evan, many thanks - good news. My later rails have some teeth missing where the join is and I wondered whether that was significant.

    I have a 45cm rail which for packing purposes I would like to split into a 15cm and a 30cm rail. Apart from ensuring absolute accuracy in the cut will this give any problems ? Alternative is to find...
  25. Re: Gandolfi Precision 4x5 w/ case, lenses and several backs.

    Turned out to be a whole plate.... with newish bellows. Back and holders are whole plate (different size) from a Kodak camera.
  26. Re: Gandolfi Precision 4x5 w/ case, lenses and several backs.

    Thanks for that, I did correspond on the other one he sold but lost the auction race ! If its Ok then the price is good, my initial thought was 5x7 but the proportions didnt look quite right, looks a...
  27. Re: Gandolfi Precision 4x5 w/ case, lenses and several backs.

    I did manage to buy one yesterday on fleabay which I suspect is whole plate or 10x8 but not advertised as such. Just looking at the scale next to bricks it isnt a 5x4.
    Should get it tomorrow so...

    Thank you for the comprehensive answer. I am so happy to be back with an Arca again, feels so right in the hand.

  34. Re: Arca F Field MEtric 141 - offset for front ?

    Answered one of my dumb questions. I had the camera set up slightly offset in the carriers so it looked like I need to lateral shift to center.

    Question I still have is - how much rise is needed...

    Could someone tell me the precise offset for the front standard on a 141mm metric 5x4 rear please ? Both axis - looks to be 5mm on the lateral and 3 notches on the rise !

    Many thanks
