Thread: Horseman Sinar compatibility

    Horseman Sinar compatibility

    Are lens boards and bellows interchangeable between the Sinar F and P cameras an d the Horseman L frame cameras? I had been told they were but others have cautio ned that the Horseman lensboards are thicker and can actually damage the retaine r mechanism of the Sinar. Anyone have the "real" story?

    Nonsense. They are, for any practical purpose, Identical. There are minor differences also in other components like bellows and film holder but compatibility is a minor issue, I am not sure for example that the two separate shutters systems horseman and Sinar are compatible but I guess isn't a very major problem. Horseman isn't always cheaper than Sinar. Another interesting thing is the Rotary back , even the model especially made for Horseman L cameras fits perfectly Sinar(you can find this at ) they stil have a few (gotta be patient their english isn't much of a muchness). Good luck!

    I have also found that Horseman boards fit my Sinar p. Didn't Horseman copy the Sinar board design on purpose? To make them somewhat compatible?

    I also have a Horseman lens board which is perfectly interchangeable with the Sinar boards that I use on my F2.
