    Rodenstock Imagon

    https://www.cameraeccentric.com/stat...denstock_1.pdf

    I have 3, all complete with discs, hoods and filter

    250 mm in Copal 3 in OE box

    360 mm no shutter in OE box

    420 mm no shutter no box

    All VGC

    I just got the 420 today, it is cleanest of all, KEH EX and way cheaper than the others on sale same moment

    The literature I have read, said the 420 and 480 are pre WWII only, yet the 420 looks newest, all exact same style hoods and strainers, same expanding spring ring design. All coated? Hard to see.

    I am not an expert with these but want to match my actual vision, meaning my fuzzy eyesight in fact, in lens, on GG and hopefully in print.

    My 420 and 480 are both coated and look to be quite post-WWII. Alas, the 480 suffers from snowflake separation, and I don't know anyone who fixes such things. Pity...

    Sinar Norma 420mm Rodenstock Imagon Homemade Board by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Here's my 420mm Rodenstock Imagon. My Clockmaker friend made the homemade "forward mounting" with the appropriate spacing. This is a big lens; the flange is bigger than the board itself. The Norma Shutter diameter is about 84mm across. The rear cell on this Big Baby is about 94mm across. So the rear cell diameter is bigger than the Norma Shutter diameter.I've used this for 8x10 B&W headshots and it is outstanding. Wish I had more than just the H5.8-H7.7 disk. I'd like to have some custom 3D printed. That would be a real service.

    Hi Mark,

    Ask Jason Lane (the dry plate Guy) about it. He might be able to fix your separation?
