    Re: Speed TLR

    Have any spare Meridian Lens boards like that to sell? I could use one for one I have that had a generic 4x4 lensboard...

    (I recall we may have corresponded about those in the past...)

    That's my only Meridian board. I think it looks pretty cool so I'm keeping it! Sorry!

    i am a lucky owner of this beast:-) with 2 Apo Sironar S 240 on bord. This unit is simply awesome for portrait and people shooting. Yo never get out of focus handheld shooting with flash. The apo sironar S lenses are the finest you can get these days!

    I once had a gray beast (B&J?) with 2 180 Paragons on board. Can't remember that I ever put any film through it.

    Cambo was all into modularity and reusing parts, so it's quite possible that the grip came from or was adapted from another Cambo model.

    Just to bump this thread, I recently got one of these with a pair of tiny 150mms on it. (Componar and Xenar, both modern versions), along with the cam, clamp, etc. One of the OEM grips did show up on ebay a month or so ago, but it went for more than I wanted to pay. I have a spare Linhof grip I will probably fabricate an adapter to mount it to the Cambo.

    Does anyone have spare lens boards for these? They are relatively unique and not easy to fabricate... and likely no longer made by Cambo I'd have to guess.
