    An interesting camera. Please start a new thread on this camera as a sort of review.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    Re: New (?) compact 4x5 camera from China

    Post moved to new thread. Pierre506, please tell us more about the source and availability of this camera. So far as I can tell by wading through the Chinese pages, the website at the URL inscribed on the camera does not appear to have any information on it.

    What's the URL? I read http://kangrinpache.com/ but that's not it?

    That's www.kangrinpoche.com - it won't work without the www. But there's no info on on the camera, only ball heads, right-angle brackets and a lens spanner. Perhaps Pierre506 could share some links?

    Re: New (?) compact 4x5 camera from China

    Thanks for the corrections. The links seem to be dead, but looks like they have plans for 617 and 4x5 camera, with the 617 allowing midroll lens and film changes (i.e. a darkslide?) and a tilt-shift model. (I read Chinese) http://www.kangrinpoche.com/daohang.asp

    The camera is not on the market so far.
    I'd contacted the manufacturer. He gave me some pictures and description of it. More detailed pictures will arrive in the near future.
    And he will send me a camera. I will get it in two days.
    let's see the pictures in advance:
