    135mm on a Deardorf V8

    Inneresting experiment this afternoon (plant shutdown gives me lots of time).

    Mounted a Fujinon 135 5.6 W lens on a Deardorff lens board. Could not focus to infinity.

    Must use a recessed board or not at all. Coverage looked like it would barely handle 5x7 but not 8x10.

    Anyone else with this experience and how did you solve the focus issue?

    Coverage of the Fukinon 135 5.6 W is just 245mm so it should not cover 8x10. If you want something short for 8x10 you could consider the Nikkor 120/8.

    A recessed lens board is the way to go as you have already found out (or shooting close-ups).
    Good luck.

    You should be able to focus that lens easy without any special board

    I use the Fujinon SW 125 on 8x10. I crop the corners a little when printing and it works pretty well.
    I'm not sure about the Deardorff, but on a "Phillips Style" camera, the back can be moved up closer to the front standard and it will focus OK. I also have the bag bellows, but since no movements are available with this lens, it is not any better than the standard bellows.

    A pitcher is worth a thousand woids.

    I had the front standard straight up and down. The issue is with the gear drive pieces hitting each other. Now I see how you have the standard tilted back allowing more room assuming you don't get the supports in the image. I'll try that tonight.

    Duh!
