    Question Do I need a recessed lens board for the Fuji Fujinon SW 90mm F8?

    Hi everyone!

    This is my first post here. I've been photographing professionally (34mm) for more than 20 years but currently I'm doing a PhD and not photographing much.

    I decided to get myself an Intrepid Camera (just for fun) and I just ordered the Fuji Fujinon SW 90mm F8. I already have the Fujinon 180 F5.6.

    My initial plan was to buy the camera from a friend who ordered one to shot som wet plates but decided no to go forward because of the toxicity of chemicals. I did get his camera but the focus plate wasn't working and I turned it back...

    I'm going to order a new one from the intrepid site and I'm not sure if I can get their lens board or if a need a recessed one?

    Thanks in advance

    Alex

    You don't need one, but a recessed board will allow more movements than a flat board if you need them. A 75mm does require a recessed board.

    I have my 90 mm 8.0 Nikor on a inch recessed board and it have better movements (on my Toyo AII) than my 90 mm 8.0 Super Angulon, which are on a flat board.
