Thread: Show off your Large Format camera!

    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    Plaubel Peco Profia Camera Stand in my studio. One of these days I am going to finish off this space.

    Every studio needs a camera stand.

    I have a couple geared rise standards. They lost parts and screws prior to my stewardship. Perhaps shipping vibration. Parts are impossible to find for these years. I bought single standards for parts. Knobs are a weak point.

    Beware of the tripod foot as I see them as under-engineered or is it over-engineered. They break and nobody seems to have a spare. A better one could be machined easily. My first one had a very long chrome rail with bad rust, I almost made a new one, but found the superior triple rail.

    Today I have NOS 5X7 mit Linhof case. First session in new studio.

    Tha't an absolute beauty. The main tripod column seem floating on top of the dolly. I now understand your earlier comment on the dolly.

    This was shot not long after I got the Canham 5x7 from a member here. There's way more snow now than in this photo. Fuji 210 5.6 (inside lettering)

    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    My camera and tripod were itching to go for a walk today. I shot 10 sheets of tmy2 with the speed graphic (what I brought), 1 roll in the rolleiflex, and a handful on my cell phone after the Rolleiflex ran out of film and it was too cold to change it.

    It was 0f and windy most of the day, meaning a -20 windchill. Wind slowed down a little at the end of the day and I was glad to get out and get fresh air. It was unpleasant for the first 10 minutes till I get the blood flowing with exercise, and then it was a pleasant winter afternoon shooting and hiking.

    A 60 years-old Linhof brochure, showing off their new upcoming 'Mark-3' Kardan Color 8x10'' Triplex Configuration (the whole system is highly modular allowing the mix of parts from differetnt models) - A West-German print advert, Munich, June 1959.

    Moe, please note the different design of the knobs - compared to the traditional Faucet-Type knobs (which I prefered most).

    Unlike the older type, the newly designed knobs could not be taken apart from the machine, as they all had a locking-pin, near the knob's neck.

    This is brobably done to prevent a known occurence of knobs cracking or shattering if loosen away from their fixture and falling of a hard surface.

    Yuval,

    I have 1962 and 1966 Linhof full catalogs. 1957 is online. I tried to find a Gigant studio stand for a while. I think they are all scrapped as they were electrical hydraulic and that stuff always fails, making the thing worthless. Except now...

    Here are some of my Linhof lensboard mods. I have plenty of lensboards!

    Dustyman has one http://dustyman.com/post/12315064213...or-8x10-camera

    Here's my first one in my old studio. https://www.photrio.com/forum/thread...rst-day.96541/

    Here's the first iteration, a prototype, maybe on 1 or 3 made. I have seen it in an old movie. Perhaps 'Funny Face' Audry Hepburn. I may have the wrong movie.

    Bob Saloman a member here and former Linhof rep says the First Linhof Kardan Color 8X10 was too costly to manufacture. Notice the ball gimbal on the standard to rail connections. They can move in a very interesting way.

    This is a picture of my Toyo 810MII camera. Since it was taken I had SK Grimes mount the 610 Apo-Nikkor in an Ilex 5 shutter that I purchased from a forum member and replaced the two rail endcaps with new ones obtained from Toyo. Even if I end-up not taking a picture, it's a beautiful camera to look at.

    Note: Picture taken with the rear lenscap in place.

    I saw a Gigant on sale on Ebay Germany for 175 Euro about two weeks ago. Not all Ebay Germany's listings will appear on Ebay global, because those listings which will not ship (only collected locally) are pointless to publish outside Ebay Germany, and most Ebay Germany listings will only ship inside Germany but not abroad.

    Shipping such a monstrum is a whole new opera.

    There are of course, all kinds of active web-auctions in which you sort out by wise Google search-phrase.

    Next time I'll see a Gigant on auction or on sale, I will send you the link on private mail.

    The best way to collect Linhof parts is to actually go to Germany and look up into the local market.
