    Re: Tripods

    I sold off my aluminum 055, but kept my CF 055. The CF is a great tripod, and I prefer the Bogen 3047 head.

    That stated, it's now relegated to secondary status. I bought an Induro CT-303, and I...

  4. Re: Linhof Technica III (mk 5) and Nikon Nikkor SW 65mm /4 lens question

    I saw a discussion about this a few years back on another forum. As I recall, it's unlikely that the 65mm lens can be used; they recommended (I believe) a focal length minimum of 75mm, and then with...

    That's identical to mine, although mine didn't come with the adjustable feet. I got mine at a garage sale for about $20. Long since paid for itself.

    Do you have enough draw on the bellows? The Speed Graphic has about 12" of draw, and the lens may need more for closer focusing.
