    Looking for Crown Graphic Manual

    Hello,
    Is there a downloadable manual for the Crown Graphic somewhere online? I have finally succumbed to the large formats sirens call.....

    Karl,

    Graflex.org, don't have any downloadable manuals, they always refer them to Rich at southbristolviews.com

    Down near the bottom of this page there are several Graflex manuals that may be of interest:

    Much more comprehensive than the camera manual is Graphic Graflex Photography by Willard Morgan and Henry Lester. The 8th edition of 1947 covers up through side rangefinder Crowns. I don't know which edition covers the top rangefinder models. This book is usually available from online booksellers such as http://www.abebooks.com/

    Good point, Jim. I have a copy of that book and it covers just about everything they made. They go for cheap if I remember correctly. If you can't find it at Abebooks, try Powells or Alibris (both .com).
