Thread: Lens Board Compatibility with Horseman LX4x5

    Question Lens Board Compatibility with Horseman LX4x5

    Folks,

    Any pointers on what lens boards would work with the Horseman LX 4x5 Camera? I have found references to a page on S.K. Grimes web site in my searches, but that page does not appear to be there any more.

    Thanks for your help!

    Cheers.

    One way to learn about gear, is to watch many eBay listings

    But don't buy them all...

    I watch the limit of 100, for years

    Sinar/Horseman adapter boards to accept Technika boards are readily available, while adapters to other types turn up now and then. SK Grimes can also make adapters to almost anything smaller. I have Sinar/Horseman adapters for Technika, Toyo/Canham and Horseman field boards.

    If there's a chance you'll end up with an outfit that includes both the Horseman LX and a compact field camera, it makes sense to standardize on a more compact board such as the Technika type, which is used by many field cameras, and use an adapter for the LX.

    I wish I had the resources to even approach distantly buying them all! :-D That is a great pointer. I will do so. Thank you!

    Thank you, Oren! I am not currently planning a field camera but my wife assures me that I'm insane enough and that this will happen! :-)
