    Hi. I am looking for some parts for a Horseman 45FA. I need a replacement for one of the black plastic handles on the front of the levers that you squeeze to move the front standard, and the two tiny screws that hold it in. It is the right-hand handle, looking from the front of the camera. I live in Australia, and tried the Australian agent listed on the Horseman web site (L&P Photographic); they were unable to help.

    Can anyone recommend a source, anywhere in the world?

    Great camera but oh boy good luck. I tried to get one screw for the release button on the back of the folding hood. Horseman service in New York did not want to hear anything other than send in the camera. I got lucky and found that a screw from an old Vivitar lens was a perfect fit. When the sale is made, the service is over.

    You might try Calumet - a few years ago I was able to get some small parts from them for a Horseman VH. They haven't sold Horseman for a while now so there are no guarantees, but it may be worth a try.
