Hi to the forum.
I apologize for the long-winded message; I felt I had to give the background. I thank you for reading it and perhaps I can sort this out once and for all in my mind.
I shoot scenic, a 67 in the std format and cropped to panoramic, architecture and interiors using the 67, hence my need for a camera with movements. I donít want 3 cameras cluttering up my office; I can also only afford one. I donít want, or need to shoot 4x5 cut film, 120 gives a beautiful 16x20, and even bigger, print.
Here are the scenarios. If I get a Wista VX, I can use a 612 back for my panoramic, and I can get a moderate camera for architecture using a 90mm lens. Then I thought if I was to use a 6x7 rfb on the Wista, I can still shoot the ideal format, but in 67, and with the widest lens useable on the Wista, a 55mm, get close to what I am using on my Pentax 67 (45mm smc), but with movements.
My question is, would the amount of rise (mm)required for the 6x7 format be less than that required on the 4x5 to give me a corresponding effect of correcting the perspective?
If this is true, would I be able to get enough rise, using a 55mm lens on the Wista, with a bag bellows and recessed lens board because I would need less movement because the image circle would quite easily cover the 67 format, would this be the case?
Is anyone using this lens/film combination on a Wista VX or other similar tech-camera?
The Arca is hugely expensive and I canít find anything 2nd hand, it would also not give me the 612 option for my pans, but may be a better camera in the long run.
