    Re: Shutter for Heliar 300mm 4.5

    I will consider packard, thank you!

    The Chinese Sinar shutter release do work, and might be a small spare: tiny, but short. $57.95

    Re: Shutter for Heliar 300mm 4.5

    Read through, no mention of the Sinar shutter, which in my opinion is the only reason for the "tiny" 140mm sinar lens board. A Linhof Kardan at 162mm is still on the small side, I could barely fit my...

    Re: Schneider Symmar S 210 5.6 help

    This looks like a good-enough centered back cell for portraits, and could even work for landscape. I think the machinist had the time he needed. Nice portrait!

    Re: Focusing at 1:1 magnification

    With a 4x5" you will cover 4x5" at 1:1. To cover the same 4x5" subject, use the 121mm lens at 484mm bellows and ca 242mm distance. Focus as described further up.

    If swing are not used, instead of a clip, use something similar to the wehman front standard bottom. Or just ask Wehman himself if this has been done. It look like his website is down, though.

    An 150mm XL is so much smaller, but you might have a bit less dark corners with a 165 f8.
