    Chamonix 45N-1 Accessory Requests

    Ok, here's my wish list for Chamonix 45N-1 accessories--feel free to add your own suggestions. Maybe we can give Hugo and the Chamonix factory some ideas on what we'd like.

    Bag Bellows -- Being a wideangle guy, this is my number one request. The bag bellows should be very light and flexible. Need this one badly and soon.

    Compendium hood -- A super lightweight compendium hood would be great. It would attach via the accessory shoe and would have its own accessory shoe so the displaced bubble level would have a spot.

    Folding focus hood -- This is a maybe, but if it were superlight, I'd be in for one.

    I bought this camera because I want a superlight kit, so I expect the accessories to be light and compact as well.

    marks on the back of the rear standard to see while using the camera from the photographer position. so i do not have to go around to the front to find the zero makings for both rise/fall and shift. so far that is all.


    My YouTube Channel has many interesting videos on Soft Focus Lenses and Wood Cameras. Check it out.

    Eric the carbon fiber lens board i received with my chamonix 1417 is beautiful with inset velvet like material strips in the back of it. So in my observation the accessories mirror the level of craftsmanship of the camera. Hope this helps.

    4X5 Carbon fiber lensboards and wooden film holders was original on the accessory list, but due to the high cost, it might not be available. I have seen the prototype lens shade clip, which in my mind is better than ebony's.

    I'd be up for the lens boards too.

    I had asked previous about the folding focusing hood. I would love one.

    I'd be up for the Bag Bellows, it would be great

    - A thin and supple bellows like the Ebony SV45U bellows
    - T screw and not knobs like the Phillips for the front standard
    - Better marking on the front bed
    - An attachment for a reflex finder like the Cambo T20 would be great
    - Bellows focusing hood with removable magnifier like the Ebony one
    - An extension tube kit (like the Ebony one). I use this one for my 360

    Being able to attach the Cambo T20 reflex finder would be great. (The T20 is lightweight, reasonable compact, reasonably priced and available -- other manufacturers, like Canham on the DLC45, have also adopted its use.)
