  2. Re: Newbie Question - 150 Apo-Sironar-S on 4x5 cameras with Digital Backs

    The sensor isn't much larger than a 24x36mm full-frame or 35mm camera so figure on your 35mm focal lengths plus maybe a 1/3 more, just to ballpark.

    I see some references to techniques where you either remove and soak the heads or inject them with cleaners. Anyone have any experience with this?

    How about finding service? I live in Upstate NY.

    Ripping the top off a Crown Graphic

    I've stripped the side-mounted Kalhart rangefinder off old Crown Graphics - no big deal - but how should I attack a top rangefinder model? What's underneath that brittle old plastic?
