not sure the maker of my camera, I've had it ages and have yet to gather everything to try it. I'm still in need of film holders .- I guess wooden ones like the camera? it has a #25 on the bottom but that's all I know. I'm learning slowly
sorry for the crappy cell phone shot- this is the camera-
Hi! In the WTB category I figured I could post what I WTB so I titled what I was looking for-next time I'll type out more so there isn't confusion. Thanks- I'm not concerned with the maker of the camera, wanted to post to show it for the type of holder I'm looking for. This is the first time I've posted in this area of the forum so I may not do things right.
Yes, it looks like a Korona and will take modern film holders as well as vintage wooden holders. Modern plastic holders have the advantage of being far less likely to warp than wooden holders. Wooden holders are more compact and lighter, and, yes, will look "right" with your camera. Good luck with your search, there are a lot of old holders out there. The trick is to find the good ones!
There is one for sale on the LF forum, a 305mm G-Claron, which is a great lens (I own one.) I know the seller and he's an honest guy, and the price is spot on. It is a process lens, so at f/9 it is slower than other lenses, and for that reason only might not be ideal for portraiture, but I use mine all the time for landscape and architecture. It is capable of covering an 11x14" negative, so plenty of covering power for 8x10.
Hi! I've got a lens & shutter purchased from a fellow lg. format member. He's getting a lens board all ready for it as well which is very kind of him. It's a Wollensak Velostigmat 9 1/2" Series II f4.5 in a Betax 4 shutter.
