    Ground Glass focusing screens including custom sizes from Young Camera Company

    Hello:

    Young Camera Company now offers for sale common and custom size ground glass focusing screens. These screens are actually ground using loose grit and custom made glass grinding tools. These are not cut rate sand blasted or acid etched screens. They are ground. All other methods tested by Young Camera Company have resulted in glass screens that were not flat. Because of this we have refused to produce our ground glass in any other way than to laboriously grind it. This method quite simply makes the best screens.

    No extra charge for custom screen sizes.
    No shipping to pay, prices quoted are always FREE SHIPPING to domestic US addresses.
    No delay, we ship within 2 business days
    No tax, except for Washington state residents at 10.1%
    Satisfaction guaranteed. If you are unhappy with your focusing screen for any reason return it within 14 days for a complete refund. If it arrives broken you will need to pursue an insurance claim
    with USPS.
    PayPal payments accepted.

    4x5, $20 USD including shipping
    5x7, $35 USD including shipping
    8x10, $80 USD Including shipping
    11x14, $154 USD including shipping

    add $8.00 USD for clipped corners

    Custom sizes near these sizes (smaller) no extra charge

    Thank you

    Hi Kenneth:
    11x14 with square corners is $70 USD including shipping to domestic US addresses. With clipped corners the price is $78 USD including shipping to domestic US addresses. I am sorry the we do not currently offer grids, but that is in the works.

    Thank you for your question

    I can provide 4x5 or any size close to it for $20 USD with square corners or $28 USD for clipped corners including shipping to domestic US addresses. Please measure carefully to see if a 4x5 inch screen before ordering. Please indicate what measurements inch or millimeters will fit your Arca F.

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Ground Glass focusing screens including custom sizes from Young Camera Company

    As has been mentioned often here, a difficult quality of ground-glass is its granularity. Some of us find a GG such as Satin Snow, the most highly refined product, is nonetheless difficult to focus upon while more granular screens are more accurate for others. So, it is not all about metrics we can write about, but what we find useful.

    So, try and buy... and look into aerial focusing which I prefer - a completely subjective thing.
