    Re: Chamonix 45H-1

    I had the same question and their official reply was that the extension board isn't for the H-1. But if you just need that 50mm extra length, I guess you'll do well with any of the extension linhof...

    Re: How does the Sinar F2 compare to the P2?

    So the f2 is one that is with the proper front and rear standards? That would be as heavy as the p2 setup, I would imagine!
  11. Re: Anyone Know Where to Find a Manual for the Sinar P2 8x10 Metering Back?

    Did you mean the lever that locks down the probe when inserted into the back? It's used to hold the meter cell at the place where you want to take meter readings.

    Re: How does the Sinar F2 compare to the P2?

    The F2 4x5 is nice, but the 8x10 is probably too unwieldy. You don't actually achieve meaningful savings in weight (7.9 kg for the F2, and some 8.5 kg for the full set P2 8x10 - meaning that if you...
