  1. Re: Toyo sliding back adapter -- what kind of roll film holder?

    Toyo makes/made two versions of the sliding back--one that fit only Toyo cameras where the back assembly was swapped for the sliding adapter and another version that fits the international G back...
  2. Re: Rollholders on 6 x 9 technical and field cameras

    I've shot a couple of rolls through the Adapt-A-Roll holder discussed above. This can perhaps best be described as a 6 x 9 version of the Calumet rollholders for 4 x 5. They have a very thin film...
  3. Re: Front swing modification for Pacemaker Graphic

    As a followup to this discussion, I've found the information I was looking for. There are several articles in older issues of View Camera:

    archphoto, I had seen an article that described what I wanted to do and it seemed like a reliable procedure. Before attacking my Crown, I wanted to review the details. Last night I had spent a...

    Re: Kodak Ektar 127mm f/4.7 - opinions?

    The 127 Ektar has very limited coverage for 4 x 5, though some of the examples show only some softness of focus, but not falloff of illumination at the limits.

    For those shooting rollfilm on their...

    Ground glass and fresnel sources

    Suggested sources for ground glass focusing panel for a Graphic 23. Bright but not obscenely expensive. Fresnel lenses of the same quality.
  10. Re: Accommodating short lenses on view cameras.

    Another addition:

    I recently bought an older 47mm f /8 Super Angulon. While I am futzing around trying to make a recessed lensboard for my Horseman VH, I tried mounting the lens on a Graphic 23. ...
  11. Re: Rollholders on 6 x 9 technical and field cameras

    Jeff and Oren,

    I think you are both talking about my concerns in attaching focusing panels and rollholders. When I first started using Graphics in the mid-50s, I guess I found it acceptable to...

    Re: Complete Newbie to LF Photography

    Brooks,

    Many of us have been down this path. It is filled with periods of ignorance and information overload, and often frequent swaps--all part of the fun and adventure.

  15. Re: Accommodating short lenses on view cameras.

    Minimum extension for focusing short focus lenses is a primary spec to be concerned with; standards movements based on bellows compression is another concern, particularly when using 4x5 cameras with...
  16. Re: Rollholders on 6 x 9 technical and field cameras

    As a followup to Oren's original mention of the Linhof Rapid Rollex, I just note the current price on the B&H site--$1509.95. That is about 75% of the last retail price I saw for the Horseman VH and...

    Re: Swinging with a Wista VX?

    Not sure how much Wista VX's changed over their production, but mine has a relatively short two part focusing track that keeps the bed out of the frame with a 65mm lens. Wista suggests a little rise...

  24. Re: APO Grandagon 55, Horseman VH, Recessed Boards

  25. Re: APO Grandagon 55, Horseman VH, Recessed Boards

  26. Re: APO Grandagon 55, Horseman VH, Recessed Boards

    Just to put some closure on this...I bought an Apo Grandagon 55mm and there is no hope for making a recessed lens board that will enclose the #0 shutter. While it may be possible to laboriously...

  30. Re: APO Grandagon 55, Horseman VH, Recessed Boards

    Thanks for the information.

    I will probably go ahead and get a 55mm Grandagon, since it will work nicely on my Wista VX with the recessed board. It will be easier to come up with a prototype...
