Thread: Fastest Speed of all 4x5/9x12 Sinar Norma

    120 Angulon Lens Pair TLR 5x7 Norma 1 by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Two more lenses that were both in the Sinar Norma catalog. A matched pair of Schneider 120mm f6.8 Angulons. Bottom viewing lens is in barrel, top taking lens is in compound shutter. This works great configured for 5x7 or shooting reduced down to 4x5. The 5x7 version works as well as the 4x5 version. It is quick and intuitive to use once you get used to how differently it operates.

    The second 5x7/4x5 original Sinar Norma Reducing Back just arrived from Germany. I have another Norma era Reflex Viewfinder coming from the UK and will be here shortly. Glenn Evans had a nice Norma Monocular still with the original eyecup so that is all coming together nicely. I see this camera as a studio only portrait/speed camera. So now I understand why Sinar promoted it as such. Certainly it must have had merit back then and I am slowly rediscovering that this is true. This is fun

    Terror and Holy Terror by Nokton48, on Flickr


    I think it would be perfect for photographing animals. And squirmy kids :smile: When you only get one shot...............Terror and Holy Terror by Nokton48, on Flickr

    "The Boys" visited my studio back then. I got this -one- shot. They behaved for one minute, and would do what I say. After the first "pop" they were all over the place, and then you have to chase them down. This is a 20x24 canvas print that has been hanging for nearly thirty years. Mamiya C33 105mm Sekor Chimera Softboxes Broncolor Impact strobes.

    This is the type of photography that this camera was designed to do. Shot above could have just as well as been done in 5x7 versus 6x6. One shot!

    More Norma TLR Matched Lens Pairs by Nokton48, on Flickr

    I've been slowly working towards building up my lens bank of matched Norma TLR pairs. I have 4x5 and 5x7 TLR Norma cameras at this point.

    Top Box From Top Left: Norma 150mm F9 Rodenstock Apo-Ronar Aperture Controlled pair, 240mm F9 Apo Ronar Aperture controlled pair, 300mm F9 Apo Ronar barrel pair, 360mm F9 Sinar Apo Ronar Aperture controlled pair.

    Bottom Box from Top Left: 520mm F9 Rodenstock Apo Ronar barrel pair, 90mm F6.8 Angulon shutter and barrel pair, 120mm F6.8 Angulon Shutter and Barrel Pair, 200mm H5.8 Rodenstock Imagon barrel and shutter pair.

    I am repurposing what I have and adding to it.. What you see here is about 90% ready to use.

    Having a lot of fun with this TLR project.

    Sinar Norma 5x7 TLR 520mm Apo Ronar focused close up by Nokton48, on Flickr

    "Construction Unit Design" means that I an extend the camera using extra Norma parts. Here I have added a second Norma 4x5 Rear Standard and added a couple of the 4x5 Regular Bellows. Camera is solid and will be useful.

    Here's I'm setting up my Sinar Norma 5x7 TLR with my longest lens so far; the Rodenstock Apo-Ronar 520mm F9 Norma matched pair. Focused on a very small area extreme close-up. Keith at Custom Bellows in the UK, is making a matched pair of original Sinar Norma 5x7 Extra Long Bellows (50% longer than standard 5x7 Bellows). At the same time, I asking for an extra long (50% longer again) 8x10 Sinar Norma Bellows. The bellows frames are going out the door today. Shouldn't be long shipping has been quick from the UK on some things. 4x5 Regular Bellows and 5x7 Norma Bellows fully extended in this digishot. XTRA long bellows will suit my upcoming uses very well.

    Hooray for S.K. Grimes!

    I am putting together a matched pair of 480mm F9 Rodenstock Apo-Ronars, and I needed a couple of 72mmx1 lens flanges. I called S.K. Grimes, and in five minutes Adam had my order, and three days later, I had exactly what I need in my hands. They do beautiful work!

    I wasn't aware that they stock some flanges. Now I can finish up a few lenses that have lots of use left in them.

    520mm 20 inch Apo Ronar Pair XTRA long 5x7 new bellows 1 by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Keith at Custom Bellows UK just made this 5x7 Extra Long Norma original bellows pair. I told him I wanted the original Norma pattern but 50% longer than the regular Norma 4x5 bellows. The camera is focused on a target the size of a Norma lensboard. And of course the camera can be infinitely extended if need be. Apo-Ronars are brutally sharp that's why Sinar offered them in the Norma catalog

    520mm 20 inch Apo Ronar Pair XTRA long 5x7 new bellows 2 by Nokton48, on Flickr

    My 5x7 Twin Lens Reflex Sinar Norma testing and comparing groundglass views. Yes there is a difference in viewpoint but that is minimal in my opinion. The bottom is the view lens and you can see the "flash pop" on the groundglass for a micro second in the taking lens, hence you can catch the exact peak moment. The option is viewing the image obliquely at an angle and it's just not the same. This is the 520mm 20" Rodenstock Apo-Ronar matching pairs, my longest pair (but not longest LF Apo-Ronar lens) that I own. To get nearly identical views, simply use the front and rear rise and fall to tweak both images exactly where you want them.

    Ring Around F16 to F45 HP5+ 4x5 Norma TLR 520mm Ronar pair by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Testing the 5x7 TLR Sinar Norma (reduced to 4x5) 520mm f9 Rodenstock Apo-Ronar matched pair, HP5+ EI 400 2/3 stop bellows extension, and 103mm Light Yellow Sinar Norma Filter. From top left: F16, F22, F32, and bottom right, F45. Developed in D:23 1:1 Unicolor 8x10 black Unidrum with Uniroller. Developed 12 minutes at 70F. Four perfect negatives. For silver printing I would pick F45 or F32. For Alt processing F22 or maybe even F16. Useful test. Soft lighting, soft development, and hard raw optical sharpness are the first goals

    BTW I am viewing continuously the lower ground glass, so I can watch the expression and see the "flash" in the groundglass so I can see if I got "it" or not. Which is the whole point of this odd rig, this is unlike any photography I have done before. Good for anything involving "Action"

    480mm Apo Ronar matched pair SK Grimes Flanges by Nokton48, on Flickr

    I've owned the top 480mm Apo Ronar nearly forty years and it's an old friend. Just recently I bought a second one (took a while to buy one cheaply) but now I have a matched pair for my TLR 5x7 Norma Reflex camera. 5x7 is something new for me I am slowly investigating. S K Grimes made the matching pair of flanges

    BTW I discovered that if you remove the threaded ring on the front of these Apo Ronars, they can be directly reverse mounted onto the flange! Something I just now realized, this info could be useful to some!
