    Hermagis Eidoscope

    Hi folks!

    Based on images posted on this forum, I ordered Eidoscope No. 3. It shout be of 274 mm focal length. I searched internet for information about this lens, but all I was able to find was, that this lens is based on Aplanat design. Anybody out there with more information about Eidoscope and Hermagis?

    Cheers,
    Marko

    Here is an article about Hermagis lenses from 1907 I found and posted earlier.

    There will be plenty of (exciting) information later when the experienced get in touch with you. Use the search facility while you are waiting. The 285mm was for 13x18cm originally.

    Hugo, I saw the article you posted, but forgot about it. So thank you for reminding me. Steven, are you sure it was 285 mm? I found references for 275mm. OK it was for later Berthiot version.

    Cheers,
    Marko

    Yes. You can use either the front or rear cell individualy. I exposed a few sheets using the front cell of my Eidoscope a few weeks ago and have not developed the negatives yet.

    Tri,

    I have to use Mt. SAC darkroom facilities and they don't have programs for the winter. Have to wait another 50 days.

    Call or PM me about your 20x24 holders.

    Re: Hermagis Eidoscop

    Sorry - yes 275mm. VM is a bit confused and doesn't seem to know the 150mm too well. It looks like the list should be No.1 150mm, No.2 190mm, No.3 275mm, No.4 375mm, No.5 480mm and No.6 635mm! But elsewhere they talk about at No.3 26cm but it a place where it looks more like heresay rather than catalogue reading.

    Steven, that's odd! I saw two no.2 with focal leigh of 420mm, and Jim Galli is claiming he have no. 2 of 14,5" and no. 1 of 19". It looks like VM's numbers are upside down.

    What about historic data: the constructor; years of production; what happened to Hermagis and what's SOM Berthiot's part in this story?

    Cheers,
    Marko
