    Dove head first into the abyss

    As a follow-up to my new and need help thread, I purchased a mint Sinar Alpina with case and 135mm w fujinon lens. Looking forward to using it in the next couple of weeks. I know the Alpina is the entry offering by Sinar with a different rail, but all other accessories seem to work.

    Is there any indispensable accessories you recommend?

    Focus loupe comes to mind. A cable release makes things easier.

    Film perhaps?

    But for sure you will need a few 4x5 cassettes.

    The single most important thing: Shoot with it.

    Get used to manipulating the controls, load film, compose and focus, determine exposure, implement corrections if necessary, commit to the image capture . . .and trip the shutter.

    Do it and learn from the negs/prints. Then do it again.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
