    Yeah, that's definitely a problem. I shouldn't have bought this body. Paid $100 for the stupid thing. Got caught up in the last minute bidding frenzy and overstepped my mark. But it would have been useful if the first camera was as crummy as the seller had said, so what can I say...

    Yes, they are. Unless you insist on a Heliar, just about anything in a #1 shutter will fit on a 9x12cm Bergheil - and a #0 shutter on a 6x9.

    The difficult part is getting hold of a bayonet lens mount. Someone on the German LF forum had some made a year or so ago.

    Keep it going, Søren - we need all the private consumption we can get to fend off the eco-downturn! Assume your SP-tillæg will be allocated to new camera purchases too? ;-)

    BTW - am I at all allowed to post in this thread? I only own 4 cameras.

    I started buying cameras on that aweful auction site one year and five months ago. I'm slightly over 50 cameras now. They are in every room in the house, you can't find the dining room table and I'd really like a few antique portrait cameras. I've shot almost all of them, a Premo plate camera took me forever to find a film holder for, I'd part with about 2. Don't know what to tell ya.

    No, four are roll film cameras and three are 9x12 plate cameras.

    One of my littlest problems is finding film for a 4.5x6cm plate camera...

    My advice: Stop buying more cameras and USE those you already have! I have told myself that for years but I always refuse to listen.

    Now I'm waiting for another AVUS 9x12 with a standard for #0 shutters that I'm planning to use with my Steinheil Orthostigmat or maybe Zeiss Doppel-Amatar, plus more film sheaths and filters. :rolleyes:

    Tsk tsk, I'm sure you know that, for example, http://www.wephota.de happily would cut and sell you some. You're just looking for an excuse to keep the camera on the shelf.
