Thread: 150mm WA lens for 8x10 recommendations

    Re: 150mm WA lens for 8x10 recommendations

    5x7 Norma 165mm F8 Norma SA by Nokton48, on Flickr

    5x7/13x18cm Sinar Norma Camera with Sinar Norma 165mm F8 Super Angulon, 5x7 Bag Bellows, and TTL 5x7/13x18cm Sinarsix Meter.
    Norma Cables Connect the Norma Shutter to the rear standard of the camera.

    This is wickedly fast to operate for many reasons. Many times I have gotten commercial photos in fleeting light with Norma rigs.

    By the way this was photographed in my studio by Broncolor Hazylight on a giant Matthews Stand.

    Duplicate images that a local photographer took in our town around 1900-1910. We have his 8x10 view camera but not his lenses. Believe he used around a 150mm optic that had rather generous front rise movements. No idea of the lens that he used back then.

    Maybe something like this:

    Thanks, very interesting. I can make out the words "Wide Angle" and the last word "Optical" Can you make out or do you know the brand or any other labeling?
    Thanks

    Looks like Gundlach Optical... A quick search in Google Images shows a number of wide angle lenses from Gundlach; many of them look like the one in the catalog page.

    Thanks for all the comments. Plan on selling some photo items that I really don't use any more and getting a 150mm SW Nikkor. Love my 120mm Nikkor SW lens on my whole plate camera, so I'm sure that I will love a 150mm Nikkor SW on my 8x10.
