4x5 for medium format rangefinder
Trade 4x5 Super Graphic body w/2 lensboards and 135mm linhof lens for fuji medium format rangefinder camera
Everything in great condition ! Pictures later . Thanx , John
Collin , Good idea , go check it out . If it's clean and no dents we got a deal !
I don't know knowledgable you are about the graphic cameras , but the lensboards are
different on a Super than on a Crown graphic . Crown and Speed Graphic boards are held
in on top and bottom an supers are held by the sides . Graphic boards that say the word
"Special" across the top of the board are dimpled on top and bottom and on the sides
so that they fit both types of cameras . But these boards are rare , so to use crown and
speed boards on a Super you have to glue .030 (thirty thousandths) thick shims where they
capture on the sides . I'll do the board that the lens is on (it's bored for a #1 shutter)
A drop of super glue gel does the job . The correct boards that fit the camera are bored
for #0 shutters , so if you want to use a "super" board on a lens with a larger shutter
you will have to have it bored to the correct size , unless you're handy with a dremel .
Thanx , John

Collin , Yes i saw the the mamiya universal and it looks good !
I trust you saw mine , what did you think ? Did you understand
about the lensboards ? Write back if you want to trade .
Thanx , John
I understand the lens board issue.
The lens -- on the Crown you show a Press lens in a Linhof shutter.
But on the Super it looks like a 75mm.
Can you resolve the discrepancy for me?
Collin , of course i can resolve that . On the message i sent you describing pictures 1 thru 4 ,
on picture 3 i said" bellows and front rail somewhat extended , lens on camera NOT for sale.
On picture 4 i explained to you that the lens on the crown goes w/ super graphic . sorry for the confusion , but i would never sell or trade my 75mm Super Angulon to anybody . My 75mm was on the Super graphic for a long time , that was my wide angle camera , the lens never came off .
My Crown , on the other hand , was set up for 135 lenses and that is the focal length that stayed
on that camera . I would switch off between my f3.8 and my other xenar which is an f4.7 which
had a higher shutter speed . I would sometimes shoot wide open and get a beautiful bokeh .
Thanx , John P.S. Would you want the 4.7 xenar instead ?
