    Wista-type GG/Fresnel for Linhof?

    Hi,
    I have a Wista RF, and it uses what I think is the brightest, clearest screen I've seen on any camera. It is used with a plain gridded glass on top.
    Unfortunately, the screen is a little too wide and short to fit onto my Technikardan.
    It's very reasonably priced at $160, and I'd like to hear from anyone who knows of a similar quality third-party GG/fresnel at a similar price.

    Thanks in advance

    The Tachihara fresnel/screen is very nice also. I don't know how much it cost.

    Thanks, Jon.
    It looks like the same kind of thing as the Wista's; unfortunately, I can't find a supplier since the Tach is no longer manufactured.
    Anyone else know who makes this kind of product?
    Thanks

    If you haven't already, you could check with Midwest Photo Exchange.

    Midwest Photo Exchange has the Tachihara 45 Fresnel listed on their website for $59. A plain, or gridded, cover glass overlay is additional.

    Email: jim@mpex.com

    He can ship internationally.

    (Tachihara is still in business).
