    Re: Schneider Symmar S 210 5.6 help

    Re: Help with Super Topcor 5,6/120?

    The Super Topcor 120mm f/5.6 lens has an image circle of 160mm, as marked on the bezel around the lens. If the flash sync port is on the board it means the lens is mounted on a Horseman 80mm lens...

    1. Toyo and Fidelity slides are not interchangeable - one is wider than the other. I will check tomorrow and confirm which one. If the Toyo slides are wider, it should be possible to sand...

    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.

    Re: Copal 3 Shutters on Chamonix 57N

    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.

    The fresnel on Sinar cameras is installed on top of the focusing screen.
