Thread: I finally bought a camera

    I finally bought a camera

    Well, it finally happened. I won an auction on ebay and I am the proud owner of CC400 4X5 monorail camera. I had been the victim of last second bids on two pr evious auctions. Thank you all for the info that led to this decision. When I take my first large format shot I'll scan it in and notify the group where it is at.

    I have two words for you (well actually several):

    Polaroid Type 55and a 545i holder.

    Fuji Quickload film and holder.<P. Toyo 3.3x focusing loupe (but my fave loupe is the Pentax 5.5x loupe)

    In additon to Ellis's answer, try the polaroid 56p/n. When you take the pic you get a negative and a positive, if you expose it at ASA 25 you get a print you can use for composition and focus check, and a beautiful neg :-)). The only drawback is you need to place the neg in a sodum sulfite solution right away, but beleive me, is worth the hassle. Enjoy!!

    What is Polaroid type 56? Something new? It's not listed on Polaroid's web page.

    Yes, if I moved any slow mos would be groing on me. I picked up a lens to go with my camera. It is a Rodenstock Ysaron 127mm. I went out yesterday morning and shot a couple of chromes (agfa 100). They will be ready to be picked up tomorrow night. I can't wait.
