  4. Re: Which field camera for usage with 90mm lens

    Any camera that you can place the front and rear frames 90mm or less apart should work. I believe that would include many (most) 4x5 field cameras.
  5. Re: I'm not sure if it's a popular size, but can I get some 5x7 camera recommendation

    For the same reason I went to 8x10. Four times the real estate and I do have both a Durst 138 and a DeVere 5108.

  13. Re: Can the Devere 507 be converted to the 5108?

    If you can get the 507 frame reasonably, that's the path I'd take since you have all the 5108 parts. No reason to re-invent the wheel. L
