Al-Vista 4B Panorama Camera Repair/Use Question
I have just acquired an Al-Vista 4B panorama camera. While I can cock and trigger the shutter when the front is open, I can't do so when the case is closed. The exposure bar gets in the way.
Does anyone have a manual for the Al-Vista with variable exposure length? Keen to hear from you guys
Cheers from Oz
if you search google without the 4B
you will find this
does your camera have all the doo dads that typically came with it ?
i have always wanted a al vista
Doh! THnaks Jon,
didn't think that Butkus had a manual...should have known better...the 5B is just bigger..excellent!
got the shutter to work (needs to be in cocked position when the front is closed)
No I need to find 103 film (as the film advance only works on 103 paper...)
yep a lube and clean are next, then yes may try a paper negative is the first attempt I think.
Am also mulling over the option of making a mask for 120 and then 'mount' the 120 on larger backing paper for transport...a project for a rainy weekend..
