    Hey Steve, it does cover quite well. I had one years ago on an Arca Swiss 8x10 and it was tight on movements but in this configuration it’s perfect!

  10. Re: 4x5 wide camera, similar to a Sinar Handy or Linhof Technar

    I’ve seen your Handy, it’s quite nice! I’d love to find a 43mm finder like you did as it should be a near perfect match in both angle of view and ratio. It’s $$$ though!
