    8x10 Sinar P rail extention

    Is there a difference in diameter of an 8x10 and 4x5 camera rail extension?

    I'm looking for a rail extension for my P and notice many Ebay sellers note their extemsion is for a 4x5 F, etc.

    The diameter of the rails is the same for 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10 and interchange between the Norma, F series and P series. The first ones were silver and the later ones black. Just look for a silver one if you care about it matching your P.

    The Sinar Alpina did take a special rail.

    Oh, I mean matching your P in color. A black one will work just as well.

    Thank you Alan,

    I thought that might be the case.

    The diameter of the rails is the same for 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10 and interchange between the Norma, F series and P series. The first ones were silver and the later ones black. Just look for a silver one if you care about it matching your P.


    And I think the extension rail has red tips while the "base" rail has black. I got black and it measures 12". I'm going to look for a silver, red tipped extension rail,

    Thanks again.

    You are welcome. I'm just glad that I could help.

    You are correct about the rails. The black ended rails are base rails and the red ended rails are the extension rails.
