    WTB copal 0 lens board for graphic view II 4x5

    Looking for an original copal 0 lens board for a graphic view II 4x5 view camera. The one I have is copal 1 and is a molded metal painted grey-silver. Needs to fit my Nikkor SW 90 f/4.5. Thanks for your help.

    Also still looking for a jobo lift cog for a straight drive shaft CPP2 processor.

    Thanks all!

    A 4"x4" piece of 1/4" plywood makes a fine lens board for the Graphic View II if you can't find the real thing.

    PM sent, I have a recessed and a flat both with Copal 0 holes. They're black if that makes a difference.

    No might about it. I have the 90mm f8 Nikkor-SW - it won't focus without the recessed board.

    Per the Graphic view manual, under ACCESSORIES: "#9234 Recessed Board for the 90mm"

    Also:
    "For Wide Angle photography the front and rear standards are both placed ahead of the pan-tilt camera support clamp to provide a clear vield of view. The accessory recessed metal lenmsboard permits the use of modest adjustments of the swings and tilts even with a 90mm wide angle lens."

    Thanks everybody for your help. I'm glad I didn't try to buy a flat board. That would really ruin a good afternoon with the camera. Nice pictures ic-racer! Any of those for sale? This recessed-lens-board talk makes me think I've got too much lens for this camera. Is there one better?

    Back 'in the day' the Optar 90mm was a fine lens for this camera. But kind of dim with a small image circle compared to your Nikkor. If you don't like the Nikkor you can always sell it and buy five of these:

    ic-racer, that sure looks a lot smaller than the one I bought below. You think it will fit?

    That's certainly a lot of lens for a camera... Here's a 72mm f/5.6 XL on my Busch Pressman. Definitely well hung
