    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    My go to camera is still my Busch Pressman Model D. If necessary, I will pull out my Sinar but that hasn't happened too many times.

    Re: Show Me Your Night Shots!

    You can point a laser at something (not a person or animal) and focus on that. Actually you can do that at several places in the scene for near and far.

    The focus is in meters. Goes to .55 meters minimum focus.

    I usually set mine to 8 meters and leave it for most shots.

    Re: Lenses to fit inside a Busch Pressman

    Kodak Ektar 100mm/6.3 Widefield was frequently used in the past.

    As to 210 mm lenses none of the newer ones will work that I am aware of. The 203/7.7 Kodak Ektar has a excellent reputation.
