  1. Re: Not understanding Toyo Base Tilt Front and Rear

    From looking at the link to the camera specs, I think they're being a bit less that straightforward in how they describe this. If you drop the bed 15 degrees and then level the bed, the back will be...

  5. Re: 210 for travel and landscape: Heliar or Schneider?

    I bought a 305 Repro Claron that I used on my 5 x 7 Kardan Bi in 1970. I loved it - I did a lot of fairly close-up photography - not quite macro, but close. I still love it even though it may be a...

    I shortened a Linhof Kardan Bi rail so I could carry the 5 x 7 on the short rail all set up and ready to mount on the tripod then just add a rail and shoot. Worked fine. But I shortened it TO about 6...

    Re: 300mm lens 4x5" landscape

    I still use my "ancient" f/9 Repro-Claron 305mm. I bought it new around 1970. But lately for a long lens I use the Nikon 360 - 500 - 720 set (720 on 5 x 7, 360 & 500 on the Technika.) Very sharp,...
  9. Re: Should I build a LF TLR? What would it take?

  11. Re: Epson V850 Pro Scanner and 5x7 film & other

    Hi Sandy

    Did you mean that the mounting station wasn't available for the 750 when it was ORIGINALLY sold? Because when I got my 750 it included the mounting station.

    The flange itself adds a lot of strength to the board. By the way, my next project is to print a back for my 5 X 7 Linhof Kardan Bi. I've lost track of my 5 x 7 to 4 x 5 reducing back so...
