    Special Order of Canham Whole Plate cameras

    I'm working with Canham Cameras to put together a special order of Whole Plate field cameras.

    These are based on the popular 5x7 camera's with a modified back area and custom bellows. If you're interested in one of these custom made cameras from one of the top camera builders in the world, let me know.

    Canham Whole Plate Wood Camera $3750.

    Hi Rob,

    I am not in the market since I shoot Velvia Fuji Quickloads in my Linhof Technikardan 45S or my Toho Shimo FC-45X, but that is substantially less than the Ebony Whole Plate camera being discussed here and over at LF Forum.

    What film holders are they going to be built around? I had spoken to Keith at the View Camera conference about making a whole plate back, but he said he needed to know what kind of holders I was going to use with it.

    What would be the price of just the back and bellows? I have the Chassis and would opt for just the back.

    I vote for the olf Eastman type of back as that is very common here in the US.

    Steve,
    I just saw over on the LF forum a price of $2100 mentioned for the back and bellows.

    That sounds about like what I paid for my 5x12 back and bellows. Pretty reasonable all things considered. I'd be interested to see a larger front standard, however, as there are a lot of lenses I've got that would like to live on a Sinar-sized board or bigger that I'd use on WP, and a lot of my 5x7/4x5 lenses wouldn't cover WP, but they live happily on a Linhof board.

    Rob, what would be the ETA on these? I hope the backs are fitted to Lotus or Fotoman? Thanks. PS is the price in US or real dollars?

    offered the suggestion that anyone designing a new 6 1/2 x 8 1/2-inch camera configure its back to accept Lotus holders. See the post for reasons why. Since then it's become apparent that Chamonix will also make 6 1/2 x 8 1/2-inch holders; they will fit such a "universal" back too.

    Sal, how much of a gap (at the top I assume) would there be then with a Fotoman holder? Significant enough to worry about light leaks?
    Um, we'll also lose the top 1/16" of sky, er, I mean the bottom 1/16" of ground than we thought we had if the Fotoman is 1/8" less wide than the Lotus, no? :rolleyes:
