    Re: Suggestions for LF field camera

    As far as I know, all the Chamonix cameras have graflok compatible backs. It's nice to have the option. I use a 120 film holder with mine.

    He did say "non-extreme" macro. You can reach 1:1 with a 180mm lens on the Chamonix (Draw is 395, which is bonkers for such a small camera-- extending it to 510 is possible, but I think you might...

  7. Re: Any thoughts as to source of light leak based on this picture?

    Light leak in the SP445 isn't too likely, as long as you've got both light blocking strips in place.

    Which way was the negative in the holder?

    From personal experience, it appears the powder has discolored. They've offered to send replacement.

  30. Re: Shanel 5A Shutter missing the lock ring for attaching to the lens board

    22 inches is 55cm, so your Calumet can easily focus to 1:1 (2x draw) with the 210mm, and should handle a 450mm pretty easily.
