Thread: Sinar Norma Copy Stand

    Re: Sinar Norma Copy Stand

    My requirements are a bit different, largest flat art will only be about 16x20. So not only do I want to move in the Broncolor polarized lights for classic copying, but also reconfigure things so that I can photograph a small tabletop set, anything from directly above, really. And room to bring whatever lighting in various ways, to do what I should need to achieve my objective. I have a lot of Broncolor and FOBA accessories that help with all of that. It's quite a system for still life.


    Don't have room for a biggest 8x10 Durst as I have lots of experience with those, don't think one could fit into my plans. But I do have a 5x7 Omega "E" autofocus in my darkroom. And two 4x5 "DII" which I do use. 8x10 I contact print

    This stuff can be hard to find, but I think I know how and where to look. Repurposing what I already have is a priority.

    I do have a Plaubel Camera Stand that is similar to the ones from FOBA. I paid $100 for it many years ago and I'm happy happy. It's in use on a concrete floor and needs no additional bracing.

    Sure wish I had one or two of these Balloons when I was shooting 4x5 interiors for architect friends. They didn't exist back then.

    This is one of it's primary uses, as an overall fill light. In fact I am going to use it 45 left of subject when shooting full length portraits. Lights a big set.

    And, I can use it for tabletop :smile: Here I have attached it by FOBA Combitube to the DIMIL Sweep Table next to the Overhead Shooting Table.

    Happy Happy.

    The Hasselblad Ringlight works great on the 5x7 Norma. The Norman 200B Power Pack was modified by New York City Flash Clinic. They were famous in the photo district, all the fashion Guys were using this. If they didn't adjust the pack, the tube would "sparkle" wildly after firing. I sent in two packs for modding. Sadly they are gone

    Works Killer on the 5x7 Norma

    Sinar Norma 8x10 Overhead Reflex Rig by Nokton48, on Flickr

    I've been using this area as a work table and catch-all. Today it is cleaned off and ready to start using for photography. My 8x10 Reflex Sinar Norma 165mm F8 Norma Super Angulon Norma Shutter Norma Copy Stand. FOBA Combitubes to the right. I put two pieces of wood together makes a super steady base. Camera is solid and I have Norma 5x7 and Norma 4x5 Reducing backs for this camera. An ideal basis for a retro overhead shooting table. I can even attach the camera upside down to a ceiling rafter for really wide shooting. This is going to be fun. FOBA DIMIL sweep table to the far left, I need to get some thick flexible white plex then I can underlight with it

    The idea is to leave this set up on a semi-permanent basis. Good for any kind of shooting from basically directly above, but oblique is possible too. Plenty to experiment with at this point

    Is the 8x10 reflex a Toyo, Sinar, or ??? The 8x10 Toyo seems to be unavailable as of a few years ago. The Sinar I have heard of but have never seen one listed FS. Gowland I seem to recall once offered one, but I may be wrong. I've been looking for plans on making one for my whole plate and 8x10 cameras but with no avail. I definitely do remember seeing one page in VIEWCAMERA that showed a custom constructed 11x14 reflex finder but can't find it in my collection VIEWCAMERA mags. If someone knows of the issue that it was described, I'd love to have that info....

    This is an original Sinar Norma 8x10 Reflex Finder, was delivered in the original box. There is one in Morrocco for sale on Ebay, but this one came along and I grabbed it. Sure glad I did it's quite rare. Has the old Sinar logo on it from the Norma era.

    If you had an old bellows frame you could construct one of these

    This guy has one for sale in a beautiful Norma outfit
