View Full Version : Using 5X4 in my Fotokor

18-Oct-2011, 23:51
I realise this may not be that easy.. but I think I will give it a go!. Because 9x12cm film is as scarce as hens teeth I have been toying with the idea of modifying one of the Fotokors glass plate holders so 4x5 sheet film can be used..

Problem one: form the measurements I have already done it's clear the focus will be out by 5-8mm.

Problem two: cutting one of the holders down so the side are wafer thin.

Wish me luck... Colin:)

Stage One... Go eBay shopping for some double dark slides
Two.. Cut away the centre of a Fotokor plate holder
