    Re: Grafmatic Back Operation

    Just add "all the way" to your number 7. Everything else is correct. I've had 8 Grafmatics for many years and they are all I use for 4x5 (other than Kinematics, but that is another story) and I have...

    Re: When does Photo-Flo go bad?

    It's not that Photo-Flo is unconditionally bad. it's that users don't follow the instructions and use too much of it. A little dab will do you - dab defined as a drop, two at the most. Use more only...

    Re: Durst 138s lensboard question

    All the Durst terminology is confusing - it has 3 holes so I assumed Tripla. You know, I just looked at the link that had the guy at Durst listing all the boards for the Tripla and he noted they were...

    It was a 77mm to 58mm step down adapter. You just have to file the two small grooves for the retaining prongs.

  11. Re: Linhof Technika III vs later models

    If you use, or plan to, Grafmatic holders, there is a slight modification that has to be made on a III. I have 2 IIIs with no rangefinders and love them.

  18. Re: Anyone have experience fixing a Rittreck View?

    Since you are in Japan, you should be able to find an original 5x7 back for it. It is a lot of camera to lug around for 4x5. Send me your email and I'll send you an instruction manual.

    Raymond, that 152 Ektar would be ideal for 4x5 but since it is a Tessar formula probably won't stretch well to 5x7 except at very close distances. The vintage normal lens for a 5x7 would be more like...
