    Want help - Busch Pressman

    My Busch Pressman (MF) has no focus screen or holder for one. I've had the camera 4 years and would like to get it functional when I return to the UK

    Either I need a frame & screen, or just the frame, failing that a medium format film pack holder which I can convert.

    Postage to the UK

    Ian,

    A 2x3 Pressman? I think I have a 2x3 graflex spring back floating around somewhere.

    That would be very helpful Dan, let me know if you can find it. I can buy a Busch Film pack holder very cheaply but the sellers postage price is to 5 times the actual cost, amking it uneconomic.

    Ian,

    I might have a genuine spare Busch Pressman 2x3 spring back and groundglass too - I have zero need for it though. I'll look when I get home...

    Marc!

    Thanks Dan, hope I've not put you to any trouble looking. Marc's back is obviously ideal as it's an original. Thanks for your help.

    It really is fotch. It's a fantastic resource that often people don't make enough use of. It probably needs a new thread - you can start it

    I've posted quite a few wanted adverts now and one persons spare is someone else's need. It's about helping each other it's not just sales and wanteds though. Last year while back in the UK I helped a student get started with LF for his University work also with his LF scanning, I've done similar before when people have been unsure what type of 5x4 to buy. I've also lent spare equipment, LF lenses etc and across International bondaries.

    There's a need to improve the sharing of skills & knowledge as well as shifting spare equipment in the right directions, that comes from us though not Sean. This is a great site and we as members need to make it better.

    Possibly the major area that needs addressing is helping new, I'll PM you that bit
