    GAS hits fast and hard! :p

    Seeing this new camera from Shen-Hao, I was hit hard with GAS, the thought of lightweight a 5x7 with a 4x5 reduction back couldn`t be ignored. So I put out an ad for my 4x5 Shen, and a nice 70-200 VR Nikkor I use way too little. In less than 12 hours both were sold, and I`ll be placing an order for the new Shen-Hao in a few days. I also won 7 5x7 holdes on eBay for $42 while I slept
    Anyone have an idea of the lensboard size of the new 5x7 from the pictures?

    Amund, if I remember correctly it is standard Sinar/Horseman lens board (140 mm square).

    Looks like a Sinar-size bord to me too.

    Congratulations anyway!

    Unless things have changed it will come with an adaptor to take Linhoff boards. Might even come with one board. So if you're lenses are already mounted on Linhoff boards you're fine.

    Cool, I`ll have to check if it comes with the adaptor.

    $42.50 for the seven 5x7 holders sure is a great deal, IF they`re light tight, we`ll see.
    Not being familiar with the size, could some one take a look at them here , just in case the seller has measured the outside dimensions of a standard 4x5 holder, wich is roughly 5x7...

    Looks like 5x7" to me. Of course, they also look like 13x18cm and "half-plate", the holders look exactly the same on the outside...
