    Burke & James press question

    Did it originally use a Fresnel, or just the ground glass?
    I'm resurrecting a B&J press, that didn't include a gg.
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.

    Probably not. Mine didn't come with one, and when I added one, it doesn't quite fit (the stack is too tall and the hood sticks out.)
    Thanks, but I'd rather just watch:

    No, didn't use a fresnel. I added one on mine for a while, pulled it off because it caused issues.
