Linhof View Camera - Other



    Robert Epps and William Baldwin present iconic views of ordinary Charleston

  • the primary colors of the children's department, the architectural features of the men's fitting rooms, the Spartan splendor of the accounting office. The stately Charleston spaces like Kerrison's Department Store, Read Brothers fabric, and the Charleston Library Society that also fill the City Gallery's walls bely the raw veracity of the duo's work. Everyone who was anyone bought their clothing at Kerrison's while Epps was growing up. In 2007, Epps was working with the building's owners on structural issues when he began to take notice of the vibrant details that the department store had left... "This is a different type of history than, say, the Battle of Fort Sumter, where you're trusting someone else's view of the past. We lived it. ". Epps cites Kerrison's Department Store on King Street, the first floor of which is now the home of Anthropologie. Complete with profanity-laced graffiti and the veritable chandelier of brassieres above the bar, Epps' photos of Big John's stand out.

Made my own Petzval Lens.... sorta

Special effects lenses like the Lensbaby creates similar effects in a small package that works on the 135 format cameras but becomes way too soft at the edges to be much use than a very specific effect. It was just as simple to add the plate into the rear standard for use whenever I wanted to use my digital camera with my large format set-up. This is built from a Linhof Karden large format camera. I tried all the combinations until I found one that created a focally reduced image circle (a circle that would only just cover the frame of a smaller format camera). Composed of several steel and plastic parts with a manfrotto mounting plate to sit the camera on it. It made it easy to put it in and out of the mount. Much of the camera bellows and plates are replaced and only the movement controls were kept. How I tested each combination was using my studio office as a camera obscura. This set up allowed me to use anything from medium format lens to large format lenses on my 5Dmk3. How Lomography reengineered a large format lens to fit on the smaller format is obviously a mystery, or maybe not. I considered just replacing the standard all together, but I couldn't bring myself to butchering my large format Linhof to do that. A Petzval lens is simply two doublet lens with an aperture in between the pairs. Today I was just playing with lens combinations to see if I could shrink down that 4x5 image to fit onto a 135 format. Last year I decided to build a large format to digital rig as seen in figure 1.

I want to try 5" x 4" photography?

Using a DSLR I tend to use 20-28mm focal length mostly and of that 24mm the most. Can anyone recommend a good starting 5" x 4" film camera and wide lens combination ? "Prime lenses such as 35mm, 40mm, 50mm." 35mm - 50mm on 5" x 4" does not equate to 20-28mm - I don't want a fish-eye lens!


4x5 inch view cameras wide angle lenses are 65 mm and 90 mm lenses specifically designed for view cameras. Spend some time looking on the Schneider Optical site https://schneideroptics.com/ecommerce/CatalogSubCategoryDisplay.aspx?CID=162 The brands of 4x5 inch cameras are Sinar, Linhof, Cambo, Toyo and Calumet http://www.sinar.ch/ http://www.linhof.de/M679.html http://www.cambo.com/ http://www.toyoview.com/Products/45GII_4 5GX/45GII_45GX.html http://www.calumetphoto.com/eng/product/ calumet_45nxii_4x5_camera/cc4020

Prime lenses such as 35mm, 40mm, 50mm.

A good starting is not a 5"x4" for several reasons - Volume - The need of a special enlarger - The impossibility of digitazing negatives in regular scanner
John P | Jul 24, 2013
Is that a 'full-frame' or crop frame DSLR? If cheapish then crop frame. 24mm (not very wide) on crop frame = approx 90mm or 110mm on 5 x 4 [ or 36mm on 'full frame'], as in an old film-based 35mm camera]. If you are buying the camera and lens it is more a matter of what is available at the price you can pay.
jeannie | Jul 24, 2013
Wait....didn't I give you a good enough answer on this yesterday?????????? 90mm is a wide angle lens on a 4x5 - comparable to the 24mm you specified in your previous question: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index; _ylt=AsuCadBCTZdQciIJ008ytrXty6IX;_ylv=3 ?qid=20130722105709AA7FVeD I even posted a link to a lens conversion chart for your convenience - you could expend the tiniest amount of effort and read it. You could learn a lot. I also went back and recommended 2 cameras types and 2 lens types. A 4x5 is not a camera for the lazy. It is heavy, difficult to use, requires a lot of ancillary gear like a cable release, level, tripod, black cloth, changing bag, film carriers, loupe, measuring tape. Then there is lighting gear. Oh, and the image is upside down and reversed left to right. You will also need a handheld light meter. They don't come built into the camera. If you don't understand the answer(s), ask for clarification. Most answerers review their answers at a later time and are happy to add information. To re-ask the same question without asking for additional information is just insulting.

Lenses for a large format camera don't have the same angle of view as lenses of the same focal length on a full frame DSLR. Here's a conversion chart which shows equivalent focal lengths depending on the film format: http://photo.net/photo/lens-table As you can see 90mm on a 5x4 is approx equivalent to 28mm on a 35mm camera.

What camera to use in photography at college?

I'm a high school student taking a college class and I have another question open for specifically what camera to get here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index; _ylt=AlfR9vz0TsfpfOSFrT8iBFIM_dw4;_ylv=3 ?qid=20130515160029AAjVN0G But I'm more interested in those that took the class. What kind of camera should be used? Any digital camera? A professional camera? A mirrorless camera?


When I was in school studying photography, we were required to use the cameras we would later use in our careers. The list of cameras used were these * Linhof, Sinar, Cambo, Calumet and other 4x5 view cameras * Hasselblad 6x6 * Nikon and Canon 35 mm SLR' ... since 2002, students now use Nikon and Canon dSLR cameras Which camera you need for your first classes may be a 35 mm camera, but you need to talk to your instructor. It would be a shame to spend your money on a camera you will not be able to use in your first classes

This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Adapter, 4x5 Field Camera to Nikon Camera, for Cambo, Linhof, Calumet, Horseman, Omega, Toyo, Kodak and and other Graflok 4x5 Cameras (Camera) This product is as good as it gets, I suppose. This is as described. However, you will have a little bit of vignetting problem if you shift too much. You cannot cover the whole 4x5 area but it is quite decent. I have made various images with it and they worked out great. Its indispensable if you want to keep the flexibility of a view camera and the convenience of digital image (at an affordable cost). I used this on Cambo 4x5 to mount Nikon D800e.

    0 5/5 Michael F ONeill - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Adapter, 4x5 Field Camera to Canon Camera, for Cambo, Linhof, Calumet, Horseman, Omega, Toyo, Kodak and and other Graflok 4x5 Cameras (Camera) After reading the other reviews, it seems clear that they were based on earlier digital camera systems. This adapter allows one to stitch multiple images using a large format camera and a digital SLR. The main limitation is that you can really only use a lens that is about 120mm or longer, due to the design of the adapter, but with the right subject, this shouldn't be a problem. This camera system will really excel in situations like studio tabletop photography. I was able to stitch huge files using this adapter ( 300+ Megapixels ) but it is important that you are using a camera that has live view capability ( almost all the digital SLR's produced by Canon in the last few years have this option ) and a heavy duty tripod is a real plus. I recommend this highly for anyone needing to create high resolution captures of static subjects.... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, September 16, 2013

    Almost major fail

    First of all - i do own wee bit different version of it, one that accepts M645 backs. Its got one more weak point than this one.Secondly - you basically buying machined piece of metal. Be warned - there is no magic about it. Its a bit of metal.It slides left and right so you basically getting center-based crop of 4x5 image. If you happen to own FF body - it will be as if you put 35mm roll on the center portion of your 4x5 negative. If you got cropped body - even smaller, for obvious reason.You will have to do focusing IN camera (so you may consider buying on of those chips for like 20$ to glue on this adapter - and presto - you got AF confirmation.. why Fotodiox didnt do it for you? no clue) . Your film plane is way off now from your ground glass (or you can fiddle with your rangefinder of course, if you got one).If you do use old Graphic camera with Graflok - you fine.
