    Re: New compact 4x5 camera from China

    The Harman Titan and the Wanderlust had a baby--already? Looking forward to see the 65mm helical--like everyone else. Would love to see cones, helicals, and viewfinders for 90mm and 150mm.

    I got the set today.
    It's a module designing.

    The camera was designed for Schneider 58XL lens & Pinhole only so far. I don't have the 58XL lens now, but a Rodenstock Grandagon-N 65mm f4.5 lens. I found they are almost same image distance. So I installed the 65mm on it.

    I immediately brought it with a Polaroid 405 holder to the street. It's quite good.
    I also found it to need to be improved. It's without a hole for the shutter release on the grip so far. It's very easy to dig the hole for the shutter release by myself.

    I have to add that the camera has a fixed FL cone for 58mm lens & Pinhole now. The manufacturer will launch the helicals for the longer lenses in the future.

    It's very easy to bear other 4x5 holders including the normal two-sheet holder, Grafmatic...

    The module idea is a very good one!

    Many thanks for this "hands on" orientation!

    I missed it somewhere: What is the all-up xost minus any lens?

    With the 65mm installed, what does it weigh?



    This looks like a nicey done set. Hope there is enough demand to make this a viable product.

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