    Darn you people, how do you do it, or: In need of 5X7"

    Ok you got me. I fought, I resisted but finally the LF bug cought up with me.
    I have read some of the previous threads and have decided on a 5"X7" although a Graphic also could be fun to try.
    On E-bay (US) there is two B&J 5X7 from the same seller :o I have been told they don't have front tilt so I'm not sure about those.
    On E-bay (D) there is a Sinar Norma (I think) 5X7 but according to seller its in bad shape so........
    So where are all the great cheap 5X7 you all talk about??
    DBA in Denmark only a couple of 4X5 and they are a bit expensive.
    My Photopusher are almost exclusive 4X5 too and they are really robbing you of.
    So any suggestions, webaddresses or lowpriced 5X7 out there?
    Cheers

    You may want to consider something very old. Mine is a 5x7 Century, built around 1902. Other than the uncoated lens, it's still pretty current.

    I bought a very nice 1960's Plaubel 5x7 monorail in June on the German ebay site. Might be worth a look at one of these. They are heavy but mine seems to be of very high quality. Prices are not bad, either.

    By the way, mine cost 151 euros with an extra lensboard and some 13x18 cm holders.

    Often there is an Ansco or a B&J. Just check and make sure it's got a 5x7 back. Some times they're sold with 4x5 backs. The Ansco normally can't lose it's rear rail but I think the B&J can be removed. Some body will correct that. So check that the rear rail is there.

    If the B&J's are the same 2 I saw, they should have front tilt...I have one and it does. These tend to be a little different, because they focus by moving the back..but I still love mine. Then there is the Eastman No.1 that really is a beauty (could use a new bellows) but the gears are smmmooootthh!! It has a date stamped on the inside of the back - 1902. Did not pay over $150 USD for either one, but without lens.

    Bonus for me was the B&J lens boards work on the 8x10 Korona...go for it, you will love the 5x7 - just remember the signature below :o
