Thread: ULF backs on auction site

    ULF backs on auction site

    Has anyone tried out one of the backs sold by lapka37 on the auction site? He says he makes all sizes and they fit onto the back of a Sinar P. He is in the Czech republic. He calls them Cassiopeia but I don't know why.
    I was wondering if they work well.

    Somebody needs to jump in and try him out, I am tempted, but I am committed elsewhere.

    I think he has sold one back and holder for 20x24 for $1000 and then he raised his very low price to $1300, which is still insanely low.

    Good luck and why not, the price is right, film is what's gonna cost ya.

    I exchanged a few emails with him about making a reduction back, he sounded ok. I know he was selling some ULF stuff to Hongkong or someplace like that and that he primarily specializes in converting old Vageeswari cameras to modern sizes and back / holder styles.
    Website of sorts, as well as ipernity thing.

    There is Ritter for ULF in USA.
    Use to work with 14x17" and a 8x10" reduction camera back from his production,
    without any regrets.
    Ritter is not always easy, but camera parts once you have them, they work as it should.

    Hello I have bought to him a 20x24 back with two holder and a longer bellow than he now propose (mine is 2,4 meter long). The camera is well made but the sinar P bearer that I have used is not strong enough to use the camera, but it is easy to compensate. I have used 2 manfrotto 359 and will buy a third one as I will used very heavy lens and long bellow. I have asked other modifications... I can send you pictures if you want. Just give me a private mail.
    He is very helpful, I recommand him.

    Hey, could I get some pictures of the 20x24 back on the sinar?
    I have a sinar p2 and I'd like to mount a 14x17 back on top of it, do you think that'll hold?
    My mail is lumografia@gmail.com
