  1. Re: Wisner Technical Field 11x14 Lensboards

    I'm sorry Richard. I didn't mean to speak out of turn. If anyone should know, it's you. And, too, in conversation at one time, Ron Wisner explained to me that his choice of a 5 1/4" lensboard size...
  2. Re: Wisner Technical Field 11x14 Lensboards

    The "large" Wisner lens boards are nominally 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Wisner made no larger.
    Don't ask me how I know!

    If your camera truly measures differently, you might want to get a second opinion....

    Michael,
    Have you found reliable external dimensions anywhere for the 2519? I agree the inside dimensions are most critical to fitting the camera. But then the case has to reside somewhere, either...

    Re: 10 3/4" Dagor for 7/17?

    Yes, the 10 3/4" Dagor absolutely covers 7x17. And it is a great focal length for that format.

    I no longer pursue 7x17, but when I did, it was a favorite focal length. The lens I had I purchased...

  11. Re: 210 for travel and landscape: Heliar or Schneider?

    Based on the info given, the Schneider will save you a cool 300g. So, if weight is a priority, as stated, it would seem that you answered your own question.

    Me, personally, I'd chose a Heliar any...

  17. Re: First and hopefully only lens for landscape?

    Good recommendations already. But you can never go wrong with a Dagor. 12" Dagor is appropriate to a lot of situations. You won't regret it!

  18. Re: Nikkor SW 150 on Canham 8x10 Lightweight?

    I believe the 8x10 lightweight used lensboards 110mm x 110mm, so you should be OK. But at the same time I strongly advise you to contact Keith Canham and ask him directly.
