"Speak softly and carry an 8x10"
"I shoot a HYBRID - Arca/Canham 11x14"
This is a Mentor reflex camera that was completely updated for using standard 9x12 cm and 4x5" film holders. Very nice and comfortable to work with. Allows maximum comfort while shooting portraits !
This is my 8x10 Kodak Century No.1
" truth is at its most potent when it is on the knife-edge between dark and light." -Graham Ovenden
I did not varnished the brass parts, because I like the natural look of it, even if it is a bit oxyded but, often, I have to clean it again with a soft polish liquid.
Now, this is a tremendous, beautiful, restoration work, did it yourself?
I spent some time with a tape measure and made a crude scale to use my MPP Mk8 hand-held with my 90mm Super Angulon by focussing on the ground glass and double checking the distances..
The wire frame finder is originally from an MPP made for the military.
Can anyone recommend a lens hood?
