    Question To build a Large format lens w/ an aero military lens & a shutter

    Hi everyone ! im wondering how could I build a full working lens with a relatively cheap aero lens like surveillance lens and put some shutter blades (like the sinar P shutter) on it to have a super sharp tele lens for my chamber? (I shoot in 4x5 format)

    Thanks for your advices folks

    Where are you located? In many parts of the world, itís cheapest to be patient and get a decent 4x5 setup thatís already together.

    Hmm. OP, which aero lenses do you have in mind? Most, and especially the longer ones, are poisoned gifts.

    Too big/heavy/longÖ. or poisoned with radioactive elements? Haha.

    Or a bit of both like my f2.5 12Ē Aero Ektar in working Fairchild shutter. Itís 25 lbsÖ. and a chunk of that is thorium.
