  2. Re: Wish I had researched a bit on the Wista 45D

    In addition to my product development efforts, I'm still actively selling! I haven't been listing as much because I get a lot of referrals, and of course, many repeat customers. I need to fund all...
  3. Re: 5x8 sheet film inserts for Rittreck View

    If you have the folding WP wooden bookform holder and the appropriate back, you can make a sheath for 5x8, or whatever size you want. Modern WP plate holders are also available, and will allow the...
  4. Re: 5x8 sheet film inserts for Rittreck View

    What I meant was that you could make a 5x8 sheath and use it easily with a bookform holder. Thse holders were made for plates, and can use sheaths for smaller size films.
    I think you mean this kind...

    Re: (possibly) taking the large jump

    I haven't seen a Horseman 5x7 back in a long time. A Sinar F2 5x7 is easier to find, and thanks to the modularity, you can always get the Norma or P variety. The Arca Swiss is a fine option, though...

    I can confirm that the Symmar-S will not fit into a Horseman HF camera when it is folded up. The older single-coated Fujinon 150mm f/6.3 and f/5.6 lenses will fit, as will the 125 and 135mm lenses of...

    Re: Seeking the perfect monorail

    Toyo still makes new cameras, though at a much smaller scale than earlier. The lead time on some models can be a few months. Parts for the VX and G and series and field cameras are available.

    Horseman made one for the VH that probably fits the earlier models as well. Wista also made an inline viewer that fits their 6x9 adapter screens and the sliding backs.

    Toyo and Horseman cameras use exactly the same kind of folding hood. The only difference, as far as I can tell, is the Horseman hood has a rubber sheet with the name embossed, and the Toyo has a...

    Copal 3 shutters generally come with a spacer ring to move the shutter about 10mm away from the lens board. This also lets the shutter controls be used easily.

    Is your Brightscreen a sandwich of a focusing screen and fresnel? If you're using an OEM GG, you need an OEM fresnel.

    Yes. The OEM fresnel can be installed and removed in a second. It has hooks that are latched on to the back.
    There is no way to install the OEM items any other way.
