Hey guys. I have had a "Poco Telphoto Cycle C" sitting around for years. This thing is in great shape (bellows etc.) and I really want to start shooting with it. This camera was made by rochester optical around 1898. I have a few questions.
1. I cannot find a great deal of info on the camera... does anyone know anything?
2. I am amazed at how pricy 5x7 film is. Does anyone know a good ( hopefully somewhat cheap) source for this? I would be fine with tri-x but would prefer something along the lines of FP4.
3. I have the original focusing cloth... it's sorta falling apart :/ does anyone know a good place to get a new one/ can I make my own that will work?
4. This shutter is old. Unfortunately I have no pics now. Do I need a "bulb" air cable release or will a normal one work?
