    Wanderlust Prepping

    I got my 90 today. Very, very excited. I will be looking for a suitable 65. Maybe not the Schneider, but maybe if I can find one that's not too much.

    I'm planning to shoot 6x12 with it, so I am just a tad concerned that the 90 won't be wide enough...

    In any case, I was so excited I just had to share.

    I'm doing research on finders now. I had a Mamiya 7II system for a while and those finders were delightful. I am afraid they are far too expensive to justify for these cameras though. I have read through the original Wanderlust thread and learned a lot about what finders are available. Not quite ready to jump yet, but I have some ideas.

    Enjoy!

    Haven't decided yet what I'm going to do about a finder. In the minimalist spirit of it, I'm almost inclined to just try it with the sport finder for a while. But I did pick up a Blik.

    I have the lens. . . need a finder too.Missed on the funding/intro so hope to be able to get one of the "production" cameras when available.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    My new to me Linhof 90 f/6.8 arrived last week. I also picked up one of the cheap plastic (~$30) 28mm viewfinders on ebay that is almost a perfect match for the 90 as well as one of the BLIK rangefinders that is still in route.

    I'm all set and really excited to use the Wanderlust when it arrives.

    Got a coated 90mm Raptar to go with mine. Thinking about a BLIK. Will try the inexpensive viewfinder. Really looking forward to this camera.

    The 90 Angulon has been sitting on the desk ready for a while, now has a Blik sitting next to it. Don't know where my 4x5 holders are for sure, but I'm sure I'll run across them before the cameras ship.

    There was a 65mm Super Angulon over on APUG earlier today.

    Re: Wanderlust Prepping

    I won the auction for this viewfinder today:

    Panflex Viewfinder

    I can't find anything out about it, put a bid in on a wild hair thinking it would either work for the 90 or the 65. It's a bit of a gamble, but at $75 I've gambled on far more expensive items.

    All I can figure is that it strongly resembles some Widelux viewfinders.

    EDIT: Apparently Panflex is a Chinese version of the Noblex...ish. There are a few differences but they operate and look almost identical. Here's a video in Chinese with a man loading the Panflex camera that has the identical viewfinder to what I won.

    I've looked at a Panflex in the NYC Lomography shop, and I own a 6x12 Noblex (formerly belonging to the late Ted Harris, once moderator of this forum, in fact). The Panflex that I saw had a spring-driven motor. The Noblex has an electric motor.
