Thread: Show off your Large Format camera!

  1. #3871

    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    Here's a DIY 5x7 conversion kit that I just made for my existing Toho FC-45X monorail, with all parts bought off new off the Internet except the custom aluminum supports that I had a machinist plasma-cut locally. I've moved most of the photos and description to the LF DIY section per the other poster's suggestion.

    Joseph thats brilliant! (should be in DIY section?) My own version of this (once piece 5x7 back/bellows/board adapter), while very sturdy and useable, and of roughly equal weight, is very clunky compared to yours:

    I was lucky in having a Toho FC-45 around to serve as a base unit. Otherwise, it would not have been as feasible. Toho did all of the heavy lifting back when... Yours seems just as serviceable and workable, and that's what counts in the end.

    I bought this Graflex Graphic View II in the summer. It came with a handy adapter to mount my lenses in Pacemaker boards on the Graphic View, which takes anniversary boards.

    That is exceptional!
    I really like my Toho; went hiking with it just this week.

    I just completed restoration of this 4X5 Toyo Robos and the Quickset camera stand with Quickset Hercules Industrial Pan Head. The camera was unused but the bellows had deteriorated and was leaking. I cleaned and re-lubricated the camera and replaced the bellows with a Dynatect product. This Robos (my second one) is a joy to use and I am very happy with the Quickset stand as well.
