  1. Re: How do I recognize lenses that will cover an 8X10 plate with no vignetting

    120/8 Nikon will do it with mm to spare, i.e., no movements.

    So will the 120/14 Berthiot Perigraphe VIa. Look for them on leboncoin.fr and ebay.fr. These lenses are in barrel, can be stuffed...

    Re: Lousy Dagor

    Oh, come on, John, the original complaint was about a 180 mm (7") that wouldn't cover 8x10. That your longer Dagors cover 8x10 is irrelevant. Artars are even less relevant.

  7. Re: Can you add Cambo SC rails together, to get more extension?

    I just measured. Mitutoyo dial caliper calibrated in inches. 1x1, possibly a hair smaller. Did the same with no-name dial caliper in mm. 25.35 or so x 25.40 or so.

  8. Re: Can you add Cambo SC rails together, to get more extension?

  13. Re: Can you add Cambo SC rails together, to get more extension?

    That's nice. Does it work for you? Mine do, and that's why I recommended 80/20 1010 stock.

    I'll say it again. 80/20 brand size 1010. https://www.amazon.com/80-20-Inc-T-Slotted-Extrusion/dp/B001F0F10I/ref=dp_fod_1?pd_rd_i=B001F0F10I&psc=1

  17. Re: Can you add Cambo SC rails together, to get more extension?

    Oslolens' suggestion is the usual and Cambo makes brackets (C-278 monorail connector) to do just that.

    But there's a potentially less expensive way to get a 60 cm rail. 1" x 1" 80/20 brand...
