    Beside the bellows issue the lens may be too big/heavy for the front standard of a 4x5 camera.

    I've owned and used Red Dots since 1973 and the images have satisfued the most demanding of clients. I have owned the 8 1/4 AND 16 1/2 but sold them but still use the 14 and 19 with excellent results.

    I'd think it depends on the camera, I regularly use a 360 5.6 componon (monster, 3 1/2# enlarging lens) on my Omega 45d with a front mount packard, you do have to make sure you lock down the front standard, but it works wonderfully. (just wish I had about 4" more bellows)

    I must agree... especially the picture entitled, "Hanging Out."

    Great image!

    You need to make sure your lens board can hold a lens of that size and your front standard can hold a lens of that weight.

    I have an old Cambo 4x5, and can get about 30" bellows extention, however depending on what camera you have...you might be limited.

    If you decide not to get the lens...let me know who's selling it because I could use it on my 8x10 and 11x14!

    Here is an example of a "modern" Red Dot Artar which was taken with a 480mm APO-Nikkor with a packard shutter f9 using expired by 9+ years old velvia.

    Um, er, ah. A 19" lens needs about 19" of extension to focus to infinity, about 21" to focus to 1:10.

    FWIW, I shoot a 19" (that's 480 mm) Apo Nikkor on a 2x3 Speed Graphic, a short little camera of nothing at all. Chiller, if you must have that focal length on a 4x5 camera that, like my little Graphic, just doesn't offer the extension needed, use two 4x5 cameras. See the DIY section's sticky "this is my camera wot i built myself, i did" thread for more info.
