    Re: Sinar Norma 1966 Price List

    Thank you for making this information available. I should still have the 1966 price list in my archives; this is a bit easier to access.

    Bernice beat me to posting what $468 is in 2020 dollars.

    Re: Sinar Norma 1966 Price List

    Yep, 1966 was the year I bought my 4 X 5 SInar, Brooks Cameras, San Francisco, $468. Not an inconsiderable sum then. Had just gotten a job after graduating from UC Berkeley. That was a bad year to...

  5. Re: 24" Artar Red Dot Real Coverage For 14x17

    A circa 1967 Red Dot Artar brochure I have gives a "plate diagonal" of 20.4 inches at infinity. Also gives a "Full Field Angle" of 46 if you want to check this with trig.

    Re: Old ICA lens question

    For the lens cells, dial-set Compurs were threaded 40 threads per inch rather than a metric pitch. The reason why Deckel did not use a metric pitch is, as far as I know, lost to antiquity. If you do...

  11. Re: Can you guys recommend any good replacement Ground Glass/Fresnel Lens for my 4x5?

    The first item is a fresnel only so you would have to also get a ground glass. The last item sounds a lot like the Super Screen being an integral fresnel and (acrylic) ground glass plus a protective...
  12. Re: Can you guys recommend any good replacement Ground Glass/Fresnel Lens for my 4x5?

    Unless you plan on using roll film backs, I'd suggest Linhof's 021804 ground glass. This has just a grid of squares of one cm by one cm. Their ground glass 021805 which seems to be the current...
  13. Re: Can you guys recommend any good replacement Ground Glass/Fresnel Lens for my 4x5?

    I'm sure Bob will clarify this as soon as he sees it. The Linhof website is correct about the current fresnel lens, that the grooved side should face the lens. As I understand it the Super Screen did...

  25. Re: Wista 45SP -- Focus Screen withOUT grid lines?

    Fairfield CA is in northern California. But on the I-80 corridor between Sacramento and the east bay, not up in the far north counties. So yes, still much milder weather than the upper mid-west.

    Re: Photos From Nikkor 360/500/720?

    Arne, does the Technikardan have enough extension that the 720 Nikkor-T can be used with a flat lensboard? And do you use the "Tele-/Macro Bracket" (Linhof #002740) with this length of extension?
