    Graflex Crown Graphic

    Good afternoon!

    I am purchasing a Crown Graphic 4x5 and cannot find any information on which Graflite to buy. Does anyone have any info or suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Hi Debbie,

    I own a pair of Pacemaker Crown Graphic 4x5s and a couple of Graflites. Everything you ever wanted to know about Graflex (well, almost everything...) can be found here:

    www.graflex.org

    Also feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions...

    I have a Graflite with a 5 inch reflector that fits both my Speed 4 x 5 and my Crown 2 x 3.
    The bracket clips on it are adjustable for spacing/height to fit the different sized brackets,
    and rotationally to mount on either side of the cameras.

    I non destructively modified it by fitting a small electronic flash in the reflector.

    Did you purchase the camera? And the Graflite?

    Hi Ken,
    Seller had to go out of town. I pick it up this coming weekend, and as luck would have it, includes a flash and film holders! I am so excited!
