    Re: Camera manufacturers (LIST)

    You have to really check your list before posting. You said that you wanted to make a list of large format camera manufacturers.
    Sinar makes bodies for digital. They do not make 45 and larger cameras.
    Your Horseman link goes to their 612 roll film camera, not to their monorail 45 cameras.

    I didn't check any further, but you should.

    You are right Bob. I was listing first and then was going to classify into brands still producing (at least on their catalog) and the ones that dont any more. Sorry if I didnt do that already.

    Daniel made a list for 8x10, though it could use an update.

    Sinar would be a gray zone. Their current gear is largely compatible with film options, fully interchangeable. In other words, a viable option for those primarily seeking an advanced studio digital camera, but easily capable of being converted to 4x5 film. The necessary components are abundant.

    That is true of many cameras but I was under the impression that the OP was trying to compile a list of companies that CURRENTLY manufacture large format cameras. To me, that means that a large format camera is shipped new from the factory, and comes out of the box capable of accepting 45 or larger film.
    Not which cameras can be made into a large format cameras by buying old parts.
    That means that currently Sinar/Leica does not make a 45 or larger format camera.

    As you know, Bob, manufacturers can often supply new parts or components which they might not currently still make, but still have in inventory somewhere, or
    which certain dealers themselves might have in new condition for sale. I wasn't necessarily referring to the used market.
