    Re: Very light 4x5 camera with 125mm lens

    A Crown Graphic or Busch Pressman only weighs FIVE POUNDS, and since you can hand-hold it you won't have to carry a big, heavy tripod.

    Re: Very light 4x5 camera with 125mm lens

    Got some money coming along and I was looking into a (very) light 4x5 camera with a 125mm lens. Why? Well recently I spend a long weekend in Holland and had the Wista and 3 lenses along. It never...

    Indeed he does. John Blakemore seems to have settled on a 180mm.
    Personally, I prefer the 135. It offers a slightly wider field of view, and is so close to the 150 that a little cropping is always...

  12. Re: Why is the Chamonix lens board hole off center?

    Yes. On my Nagaoka 4x5 it needs to be centered, which can be done by using the front rise (If I don't forget to do it).

    Linhof had to put the hole in their lensboard low to center the lens fairly close to the center of the ground glass. This occurred because they raised the position of the front standard when they...

    Re: Petzval and Linhof Technika (once more)

    It would be easier and just as good to use the lens that you've got now, and kick the tripod during the exposure.

    Re: 5x7 diy beginner questions..

    I'd start by buying a standard 5x7 camera and us it for 6 months before building your own. There are lots of Eastman Kodak 2D camera available as a good place to start.

    Re: Will this lens cover 5x7?

    It's hard to believe that you're using a 162mm lens on a 4x5 Graflex RB. The minimum swing on the mirror is about 180mm, allowing a 190mm lens minimum.
