    Re: 5x7 Gandolfi with 4x5 Back

    A friend of mine had a Gandolfi with a 5x7 back, I don't know if it is the same model as yours. So they were definitely made however I think it will be hard to find. Gandolfi cameras are not common...

    Re: 4x loupe

    Peak makes an inexpensive 5x loupe for about $15. It works pretty well and if you drop it or step on it in the field you haven't broken the bank.

    Re: 150mm - 165mm for 4x10

    It's actually interesting question. The image circle for 4x10 is about 275mm. So any lens that comes close to covering 8x10 (312mm image circle) will cover. However most lens manufacturers usually...

  11. Re: Best 4x5 camera to accommodate a 65mm lens?

  31. Re: How Large Can I Print a 4x5 Drum-Scanned Negative Before The Resolution Degrades?
