    Two short cameras = one long camera

    See http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-...?msg_id=00CycD

    Dan, me thinks that you may have just a tad too much time on your hands!

    Very cool though...

    It looks like two insects mating or something. Does the female eat the male after you take the picture?

    Dan-

    I saw this on the original photo.net thread...very cool. I use that same lens for 8x10; it's a killer-sharp lens. No shutter on mine, but I'm not bothered by that.

    So, how was it for shooting? "It works" is one thing...but was it manageable? Did you get the kind of images you thought you'd get?

    Thanks in advance.

    Be well.
    Dave

    Dan-

    I am amazed (and intimidated).

    Please post some images taken with it!

    Let's see now - I have a 610mm Apo Nikkor - maybe I can hack it to my Visoflex...

    If I see your killersetup I think be carefull otherwise they think you belong to Osama and his killers.
    But if I see it I just know again why I like my Sinar modular system. I can get with my P and F1 and an adidional standartframe easy up tp 1,60m bellows extention and can focus my 610mm APO Nikkor a bit more the to 1:1 if I would like it!

    No, Bob, frustration at not being able to get close enough to some subjects.

    David G., it depends on the insects. The cameras, alas, are aged and long past sex. I've talked dirty to them, shown them camera pornography, and they just won't do anything. Nothing arouses them anymore.

    Mongo, its fairly easy to use. Setting up takes a couple of minutes and some fiddling to get the lens to its infinity position. How does it shoot? Fair question, we'll know when the first films come back from the lab. I have high hopes, as usual, could be badly mistaken, also as usual.

    Tom, I have a 600 Apo Ronar that weighs 8 pounds. Wanna trade? I've designed additional bracketry for mounting the Apo Ronar, am convinced that on my setup it it will cover nominal 6x6 at best. The nicest thing about the additional bracketry is that I can fabricate it myself. Had to farm out fabrication of the current set of brackets and especially the coupler that goes between the cameras.

    Armin, I like your Sinar system too, just as I like Tom's Wehman. But given that I have the two Graphics and not much desire to go up in format, I think my approach to using longer lenses has some merit. Less capable, certainly, but also less expensive.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    OK Dan, time to quit messing around and get "Big Bertha"!



    Of course those were 1959 $$ when a new Ford was only about double that so 20 grand ought to do it. I don't think I can survive another day without 40 inch TTL focus on a rollfilm back!

    Jim, helpful suggestions are always welcome. Cash money, the more the better, is more welcome.

    Cheers,
