Shen Hao XPO - First one made.

Bit sad doing this, but.... In 2010, having already commissioned Shen Hao to build me their first 6x17cm panoramic field camera, I again commissioned them to prototype a unique design, this time for a 4x5” field camera that accepted a Sinar shutter. I also requested that it should have over 400mm of...

Cokin X Pro kit - $350

Cokin XPro kit. This is their largest filter series. I used this on my large format film kit, but both haven’t been used much lately, so letting this go to someone who will use it! Two key components here: First, the expanding lens hood with integrated film holder. This allows multiple filters to be...

Re: The biggest camera I can carry

I think it is easy IF I can find equivalent diameter tube.

I've already got some for another project; that's where the idea came from.

And maybe replace the metal plate on the Majestic head for a sheet of CF.

Re: The biggest camera I can carry

I've started to consider replacing the Al tubing on my Manfrotto 161 MkII with carbon fibre sections... That thing is a monster to carry, especially with the full 7x17" kit (with the 210mm Super Angulon).

Re: WISTA?? Any opinions?

For what it's worth, I'd never buy a camera that doesn't have a Sinar mount.

The Sinar shutter is an invaluable for barrel lenses.

Sinar to Wista/Linhof adaptors are easy to find.

Re: Already lusting after 16x20..

If you want, send me the dimensions of the rail anyway.

Being able to rack back would be good. Be better balanced if the lens isn't too far forward.

Re: Already lusting after 16x20..

Maybe some sort of top-hat lens board to get an extra 50mm?

Re: Already lusting after 16x20..

Did you get the rear extension for the Korona?

If not, we need to chat. I have one for my 7x17. If it's the same size, I'll make one for you.

Re: Already lusting after 16x20..

Guess I'll have to build a 16x24" camera now to stay ahead of the pack...
