I saw a compact graflex on ebay with lot's of holders and a Ross express 8.5" lense I went ahead and got it as a buy it now deal as it was a great price. It was labeled 4x5, so I figured it was a 3.25 x 5.5 though it looked too big in the photos Well. to my pleasant surprise it was a 5x7 with lots of holders that will work well with my press graflex and the compact if I can restore it. Two holders are single plate and were marked autochrome and resemble old time wet plate holders that load in the back.I haven't seen holders from this time like that before.
Anyway, The Lense is a Ross Xpress 8.5", and I haven't heard much about them. Anyone know about them?
