    My 5x7 B&J Grover wooden tailboard camera works and was cheap to buy, which accounts for its strengths. Having the rear rail stick out behind the rear standard works fine for normal and longer focal...

    where to look for used gear

    The trade here in used cameras, lenses and accessories seems to have slowed way down, even before the virus disruption. Did it move elsewhere or have we traded ourselves into a steady equilibrium?

    If the extension rail slides out from the back instead of being a separate piece that screws on then you likely have one of the Agfa/Ansco models. Very similar, better built but a bit heavier. My...
