    Everything you need to shoot 4x5

    hello i'm selling all of my 4x5 kit, here we go:

    -Shen Hao HZX45-IIA, it misses a small screw, i replaced with some screw that is not the same but works, apart from that is perfect.
    -210mm Caltar Pro Series 6.1 as new!
    -150mm Linhof Symmar 5.6 stuck shutter.
    -90mm Yamasaki 6.3 nice condition.

    all lenses come with pouch, linhof type boards and cable release
    6 filters (49mm) and matching rings adaptors for all lenses (46-49mm, 40,5-49mm): 81b, 25A, 23A, 12, orange 02, and Polarizer.

    -19 4x5 film holders, some are as new, some are old, but all are in working condition.
    -Polaroid 545i back.
    -5 Yankee tanks and 8 film holders.
    -Combiplan complete Tank kit.
    -Calumet darkcloth.
    -Toyo Loupe.
    -A few film (always in the fridge) aprox. 60-70 of diferent bw brands.

    As you can see 4x5 never was that easy, all you need is a tripod, some chemicals and you are set and ready to go!!!
    i'm based in Barcelona, but i'm going quite often to sweden. It's a quite big outfit so sending it should be expensive.
    I heard reasonably offers

    sure!
    1-i've found that 4x5 is not that bigger leap in quality than my beloved 6x7 mamiya, but so much bulkier.
    2-i don't usually need lens/film movements for my kind of work, in fact i believe movements are the most overrated stuff about LF, if you're somekind of geometric junkie and work with perspectives all time maybe, but it's not the case of 96% of photographers i know.
    3-i don't need separate process for each picture, i end with 10 to 100 pictures of the same work/motif with same iso/camera/developing settings so roll film makes more sense to my style.
    4-i realized that the type of LF photography, or at least the look i was trying to achieve and admire about other photographers is not shot with 4x5, it's actually 8x10. That softness, color palette and gradation is miles away of 4x5.
    5-i've got some serious back injuries recently.
    6-ain't got any 4x5 enlarger or space to set one in my new apartment.

    i'll miss wide angle photography though, i have my own freaking theory about lenses: "any lens in any format lower than 85mm/90mm is bullshit"

    But i encourage anyone to give it a try and discover if it's your thing, it's not mine, at least not now.
    BTW the outfit is already sold.
