    8x10 Field Camera which uses Sinar Lensboards?

    I've been a Sinar F, C and P user for decades. Looking for a wooden folding field camera which will take Sinar lensboards, or uses a readily available adapter for the Sinar mounted lenses.

    Don't know of any wooden cameras, but the Canham JMC810 uses Sinar boards.
    And any camera that uses Sinar-size boards or larger can have an adapter made for it.

    I just ran across another maker which also seems to use the standard Sinar board. An Italian maker named Stenopeika. Seems like their lightweight cameras are made out of plywood but have no other info on them. My last field camera was a Wisner Technical field I had made in 1988. Sold it some years back. The monorail Sinar is just to cumbersome to be hauling into the field.

    My Chamonix 810WWA-c uses Sinar boards and I believe current Chamonix 810 cameras also use Sinar boards.

    Off the top of my head:

    Currently available new from the manufacturer: current production Canham (earlier took Toyo), Chamonix, Shen Hao.

    No longer made, so available only second-hand: Phillips, Tachihara, Wista, Ebony.

    The Intrepid 8x10 is compatible with Sinar boards.

    I do what i think a lot of people do.

    I have Linhof lens board adapters for the Sinar and the 8x10 Shen Hao. Lenses that go back and forth between the systems are mounted to Linhof boards - which seem to be the LF version of 35mm's "M-42 universal screw mount."

    K. B. Canham...

    or replace Toyo 810M front standard with a Sinar front frame. This has the great benefit of using the Sinar shutter and Sinar related on the Toyo 810M which is a excellent 8x10 field folder.

    VDS 8x10" uses Sinar board. Can also be customised.
