    I just ordered a 57 shen hao from China and would like to know if the camera comes with a lens board and if so what size is it?
    Thanks

    Badger Graphic sells the 4 x 5 and lists the lens "panels" as die cast....$30.00....are they the same board as on the 5 x 7 ?

    Assuming nothing has changed since I got mine.

    You get an adapter to fit Linhoff style boards [96mmx98mm?]

    One #0 board which fits the above adapter.

    You've got two choices to find out what you're getting. Email the factory. Or treat it like Christmas and wait until it arrives :D

    You can specify the hole size you want. At least I could when I bought my 4x5..

    shen hao 5x7-

    I have a 5x7, am selling it- I have too many cameras- the camera uses a sinar sized board, but it comes with an adapter to accommodate Linhof boards. I found that I had to fiddle with the screws on the adapter to make some linhof boards fit, but it works ok
