    You got a very good deal. A functioning Copal #1 shutter by itself is worth at least that much.

  4. Re: Widest Angle Lenses Possible For 8x10 120?

    My widest lens for 8x10 is a Berthiot Perigraphe 120. It's a tiny lens, two cemented triplets. Mine is coated. At f:14, it's not the brightest lens for focussing, but it provides an inch of...

    Re: Cable Release

    Gepe releases (at least the ones I have) have long throws. Mine work fine with large Alphax and Ilex Universal shutters, which require quite a long throw to fire.

    Re: Cable Release

    Gepe and Linhof both make very good, durable cable releases. The Gepe ones are more economical, but the Linhof releases are Linhof, what more needs to be said.

    Re: Options for a lightweight folding 4x5 Camera

    That is what the current Tachihara's weigh. The early ones like mine, without the rear focus mechanism and sturdier rear folding hardware weigh about 3.3 lbs.

    One of the main reasons there is less flex in the rear standard of the JMC810 than in the MQC57 or DLC45 is that the JMC810 rear standard has no swing or shift, only tilt.
