    Re: Walker 4 x 5 Wide XL camera

    I use the Walker 5x7 Wide XL camera - the bigger brother of the 4x5 version so the comments I can make are easily likened to the smaller camera!

    Wista and 120mm f8 NIkon

    Just wondering ... is anyone using a Nikon 120mm f8 lens on a Wista 45 DX? Wondering whether the large rear element will fit through the aperture in front standard?? TIA

    Re: Ever made plexi ground glass?

    I'm 99.9% sure that Mike Walker uses acrylic/plexiglass for the screens in his cameras? They are very bright! I am speaking with him this week so I'll double check this fact!

    The Schneider 110mmXL will just cover this format - but no movements as such.

    Re: 8 x 10 camera used in David Burdeny clip?

    I would stick with either the Canham 6x17 or the Shen hao (5x7) 6x17 - don't go down the route of a reducing back with a Shen Hao (5x4) 6x17 - far too fiddly!
