    Ole - are you having SK Grimes stripe polish the lens boards to match the camera?

    The "stripes" on the camera are not stripes, they're the weave of the carbon fibers. Whatever polish you put on metal, it won't match. But the original lens boards are matte black, so the "copies" are the same (I hope).

    Ole,

    If you could get them to machine the lensboards from carbon fibre sheets then you'd have lensboards matching the rest of the camera. Otherwise you could use real carbon fibre veneer. They're easy enough to cut with an exacto knife and if you order the one with adhesive backing you just stick them on to the finished metal lensboards . Though with the cost of the camera, paying for non-neccesary stuff would be hard to justify.

    You mean - non-necessary stuff like a brand new shutter for the Germinar-W instead of using the shutter off an old folding Zeiss-Ikon I picked up on ebay for a tenner? Deciding not to sell the 180 Fujinon-W because it looks much better on the camera than an old 180 Symmar? Buying a new 210mm f:6.1 Xenar in addition to the old 210/4.5 Xenar for the same reason - and so that I can use that shutter on the 355 G-Claron since I don't need a 360/5.5 Tele-Xenar with this camera? Yeah - it's hard to justify. But I'm getting good at it.

    Would have to get better at it too. The lensboards that come with the Carbon Infinity (1x copal 0, 2 x copal 1 and 1 x copal 3) won't fit all of my 3 lenses. The Nikkor 150 will go to the copal 0 lensboard, the geronar-wa 90mm will go to the copal 3 lensboard. I'd have to sell the the Komura 240mm Copal 3 on a sinar lensboard and save up for for a Fujinon C 300mm or a Fujinon CMW 250mm on a copal 1 (which would have to wait till christmas). And, since my future lens choices are dictated by the remaining copal 1 lensboard, the next one would probably be a Fujinon C 450mm. If only I got more freelance graphic design work to finance the next set of lenses. But then as soon as the camera arrives, I'd head straight to the alpstein massif with the 150mm and the 90mm.

    I got a 0 and a 1 board with the camera. And my most used lenses for 4x5" is a 09mm f:8 Super-Angulon in a 00 shutter, either one of several 150mm f:4.5 in #1, a 240mm Symmar in a #2 Compur and several larger thingys in #3 Compound...

    Hi Ole
    I was thinking the Sinar boards would fit on this camera or was this just a rumor which i heard years ago?
    Good light and nice shadows!

    It was a (mistaken) rumor. The external measurements are the same, but the Ci has an off-centre "peg" lock. And different corner curvature, as well.

    Hi Ole,

    What a FUNKY looking camera! I also thought it was a "real striping" on the camera (as opposed to the weave) and thinking, "Ole had better watch out... those gals in the tiger stripe suits will be hot on your butt!"

    I'm sure we're all looking forward to hearing what you think of the camera.

    Cheers
