Your best bet is probably Badger Graphic Sales. If he doesn't carry it he'll certainly see if he can get it for you.


Hope this helps.

what is this extension back ?
I know reducing backs from 5x7" to 4x5", or from 8x10" to 5x7", but how can you extend a 4x5" format in 5x7" (Sorry if my question is stupid) ??????

If you need more informations, or if you want to buy it, ask Andre Mouton (TAOS PHOTOGRAPHIC) who imports and sells Tachihara cameras in France, or have a look at the store of the french website "Galerie Photo" (With both you can of course pay in euros).
André Mouton is located in the south of France, in Castelnaudary (Aude) near the spanish border.
Here is the Galerie Photo store. (http://www.galerie-photo.net/)
The mail of André Mouton is : taos [at] wanadoo [dot] fr.

you are right, this gizmo really exists.
On the Large format website, have a look to the page of the Tachihara review. (http://www.largeformatphotography.info/tachihara.html)
Then go to "The 4x5 Tachihara as a 5x7 camera", and read the drawbacks...

If you need one, try to call or mail to André Mouton in France.
