    FS: Aero Ektar lens board

    I had a batch of lens board for Aero Ektar 178/2.5 lens made, custom-machined from aluminium, and with a nice finish.
    Some are already spoken for, but I have a couple left.

    So: custom-made, rugged Aero Ektar lens board, for mounting on Pacemaker Speed Graphics (lens board with lip on the edge).

    You get the lens board with front distancer, rubber o-ring (prevents slipage/turning of the lens on the board) and the flange - everything you need to mount the lens on your Speed Graphic - as shown in the last photo.

    Price: 65 EUR (approx. $87), plus postage from Croatia (percentage of sale goes to apug).

    - The lens shown in one of the photos is NOT for sale

    I've put up a short illustrated guide on mounting "The Beast" (i.e. Aero Ektar lens) on this board that I'm offering.

    Hopefully this will make some things clearer.

    The guide is on flickr, in the set "AE lens board - mounting the lens":

    And arrived and installed....
    I've yet to shoot with it, but it was easy to fit and mount on the camera and looks a very neat solution. This is it on my camera.

    Sill have a couple left - both for Pacemaker and for Anniversary Speed Graphics!
    Others who bought these seem quite satisfied

    Any idea if the Pentac 8-inch aerial lens uses the same thread?

    Hi,

    Wouldn't know, I've never seen a "live" Pentac lens, only photos. The back of the AE lens with the threads has an OD of about 77.5mm, if that's any help.

    However, I think we can make a lens board for the Pentac lens, but we'll need precise measurements and photos, plus the actual thread specifications...

    BTW, Jo Lommen, who makes really nice boards for the AE and Pentac, says that the Speed Graphic/Aero Ektar board can also be used with Pentac, with a "few inches of teflon tape": see THIS LINK


    I guess that means that the Pentac threads are a bit smaller (therefore the Teflon tape). I can't vouch for the results, though - haven't tried it myself (don't have a Pentac lens, like I said).

    Denis
