    B&J Press front swing?

    Is there a way to modify the lens stand of a Burke & James Press camera to get front swing? I've heard of a trick to do it with a Speed Graphic. Anyone got any ideas?

    I have a B&J Press.

    One possible way is to turn the camera on its side, rotate the back back to the position you want it and use the tilt as swing. The shift then becomes a rise if it is necessary.

    It would be hard to do both tilt and swing at the same time although a slight amount of swing can be accomplished by locking standard at an angle (provided it is against the infinity stops.)
