    Re: 4x10 how does it work and what do I need

    90mm Super-Angulon XL, stopped down, just barely. Long ago, Keith Canham built a handful of 4x10 box cameras around the 90 SA XL in a helical focus mount. Most users will want the center filter.
  2. Re: Nikkor SW 150 on Canham 8x10 Lightweight?

    In current Canham production, all of the cameras up through 5x7 and 4x10 still use the Toyo field-sized board. However, 8x10 and larger are now made to take Sinar/Horseman boards. As noted, this is...

    Re: new (and first) 4x5 camera

    The 45CF is not metal - the body is made of polycarbonate/glass fiber composite. There were numerous reports early on of quality control issues with the 45CF - don't know whether they ever got that...
  4. Re: Looking for advice/guides on digital to film (not inkjet)

    The cost of having a service bureau write an LVT negative is so high, it's hard to imagine that there are many who are doing so routinely for their personal work and are in a position to comment on...

  7. Re: Which would be easier to build - 8x10 SLR or TLR?

    Aye! :)
  8. Re: Which would be easier to build - 8x10 SLR or TLR?

    I think you'd have to fabricate extended risers for the front and rear standards so that you could build one for yourself.

  11. Re: Which would be easier to build - 8x10 SLR or TLR?

    Don't need a diagonal roof prism. Look down on the viewing glass on top of the camera, as with a Graflex.

  14. Re: Should I build a LF TLR? What would it take?

    Peter built TLRs in larger formats too - some 5x7's and even a few 8x10's.



    Compared to the 4x5, the 5x7 is big and the 8x10 is really big. :)

    Re: Monorail vs. Folding Camera Weight
