    8x10 back on a 5x7 camera

    Ji

    I have a NOBA Model 5 5x7 portrait studio camera with a 5x7 back and a 4x5 back.

    I would like to know if it is possible to get or make an 8x10 back for this camera.

    I can send photos, if you are not familiar with the Noba.

    thank you,

    J Durr Wise

    Probably not without an extension of some kind to clip onto the rear standard to clear any gear tracks or rail
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Also to avoid mechanical vignetting from the [existing] rear frame.

    My answer would be yes it's possible. I worked with an 8X10 view camera we used mostly for copying flat art and needed to take 11X14 negatives for a job.
    We constructed a light weight box which attached to the back of the camera and was made to accept an 11X14 back.As this was used as a copy camera it of course didn't require back swings or tilts. This rig was used successfully for many years.The camera was a Deardorf and the "box" attached using the normal tabs used for the interchangeable backs. May have to fit a longer lens to prevent any vignetting(again wasn't a problem with our copy set up).

    have a look at this:

    which is what you're referring to - I have no connection with this item/sale
