Thread: Lipstick on a pig?

    Talking Lipstick on a pig?

    Hi y'all,

    Anyone know if a Cambo 4x5 right-angle back viewer will fit on a B & J springback? Or maybe a Crown Grafloc? Or is it a case of putting lipstick on a pig? It may not improve the pig, and you'll get a dirty look from it. Probably bit too.

    Thanks.

    Not being a pig farmer, or even knowing one, I can't say for sure because I've never looked at a pig up quite that close; but my own limited knowledge on the subject is that pigs don't even have lips to put lipstick onto. So, in my opinion, putting lipstick on a pig would be something akin to putting a Cambo 4x5 right-angle viewer on a B & J spring back, so to speak.

    Ha! Chris,

    Good one. The pig allusion was just for fun. But the question about the finder on a B & J is real. Anyone know?

    Chris, did you ever get that really, really big tripod?

    I think what Chris was saying is that the B&J lacks some hardware needed to attach the Cambo viewer -- just as a pig lacks lips on which to put lipstick.
    If a contact print at arm's length is too small to see, you need a bigger camera. :D

    Hi Steve, yep I DID get that huge tripod. It goes up twelve feet. I feel very manly whenever I raise it up to its full height. Unfortunately it doesn't stay up that high for very long though, especially when being blown, by the wind I mean. It shakes and jiggles around a lot, and eventually ends up lying on its side in the back seat of the car...

    Pigs have lips, chickens don't. That is what makes stir-fried chicken lips such a delicacy.
