    Re: Shutter for Hermagis Eidoscope 150 mm 4.7

    Rudi, just saw this...

    As far as I know there are only two types 150mm "Amateur" Hermagis Eidoscopes, the 1:4.7 and the 1:4.5. Both were produced and sold at the same time. The choice between...

    Re: Voigtlander Portrait Petzval, but which one?

    LOL No, I measured from the ground glass to the Waterhouse slot.

    Yesss, I have a 15" Voigtlander! :)

    Re: Voigtlander Portrait Petzval, but which one?

    Dan, measuring extra carefully back focus is 11 5/8".

    If I add the distance to the slot (3 1/2") focal length is 15 1/8". That is much closer to a #6 (14 5/8") than to a #7 (18 3/8").
    If I add...

    Re: Voigtlander Portrait Petzval, but which one?

    Hi Dan, combined focus confuses me too. I think what is meant is the focal length measured from the Waterhouse slot. That is where I got my 16" focal length from. The distance from the slot to the...

    Voigtlander Portrait Petzval, but which one?

    I found the lens pictured below a few days ago. It is a large(ish) Voigtlander Petzval lens that, according to Dan's list of serial numbers, can be dated to 1863.

    The lens is 28 cm tall (11") and...

    Re: Help needed identifying Petzval style lens

    Okay, I will bite (a bit),

    Your lens hood looks like it is mounted reversed.

    1. Your lens could very well be a Petzval design, it could also be a magic lantern lens. It can be both. None of...

    I agree with Ian and Jim.

    For someone from Europe, looking for a sturdy vintage 8x10 camera this is really not an unrealistic price.

    The examples above are mostly late 1850's lenses. I think it is reasonable to assume that it took a while before most lens makers adopted the Waterhouse solution. So even in 1860, many lenses were...
