    That's what I was looking for, thanks Bryan.

    Feeling the love for this camera, so I posted a WTB ad.
    Gotta admire a product, and the guy behind it, that inspires such quiet, fierce loyalty.

    I used it in France for a project... itís an interesting camera. Like Carl, if I had kept it... it would have gone straight to Ritter for new bellows. For long exposures I made over there I had to make duplicates because I could actually see the front standard creeping backwards from the pressure they were under. I guess if youíre using a 240mm or 150 and never racking the bellows it ainít a problem.

    Which lenses were you using?

    It was a 210 but racked close... basically, if the camera sat on its first rail, it was fine. The minute the front standard went onto the second track, eshhhh... felt like a real handmade garage camera.

    Just as a counterpoint - I had no problem with a longish exposure and my Wehman setup like this. Yes the *bellows when extending clearly exerts pressure backwards, pulling the front standard, but I've never seen mine flex after things were locked down.

    If anything speaks to the crapshoot of variability between models and when they were made etc

    Re: Wehman 8x10 Front Rise

    Back with another question:
    On this page: https://web.archive.org/web/20161101...om/camera.html it says that a Sinar adapter can be used, which would be larger than the 5 1/4" Wehman board.

    So is it possible to change the receiver board that's built into the Wehman?
    I'd be happy if a Wehman could accept 141 Arca boards as standard, not with a board adapter, if that makes sense.
