Anyone know where you can get rangefinder cams for a Super Graphic (for 127mm le ns #P28) - new, used, manufactured?

A quick look through past posts see a reference to S.S. - who are they?

Didn't Midwest Photo Exchange deal in parts for Graflex equipment? I know they make lensboards, so it might be worth checking with them here (http://www.mpex.com) for cams. They sold part of the business to Fred Lustig. See here (http://www.graflex.org/news/lustig.html) for more details. Good luck. DJ

I was looking for cams for my Super Graphic, but eventually decided that using the ground glass made more sense in a lot of ways. But if your interested, Midwest didn't seem to have much to offer, though worth a try. At one time they were going to remanufacture some cams, but I think they gave up. This guy has some, but they are pricy: http://www.stephenshuart.com/ You might also have some luck with Goodwin photo: http://www.goodwinphotoinc.com/ Good luck, Roger

Also, if you're tastes run in that direction, check here (http://www.graflex.org/articles/cave.html) for instructions on how to make your own rangefinder cams for Super Graphics. DJ

My associate is a machinist and we are considering manufacturing cams for both Crowns and Super Graphics, as well as lens boards for those cameras.

If we can obtain either the exact specs, or borrow the cam(s) long enough to take measurements, we are going to produce a few to test the market.

We plan on marketing them initially through eBay, and my commercial web site.
