    Given a chance I'd swap my Speed or Crown Graphic for a Super Speed/Super Graphic. The lack of movements with the older Pacemaker Graphics is somewhat frustrating at times particularly in portrait mode.

    Another good alternative is a British MPP MkVII but these seem to be fetching more than they are raelly worth these days, and some people are trying to sell Graphics at equally high prices. Super Speed/Super Graphics are a lot less common but if you can find one a lot more versatile, there's also the Toyo version.

    What do you give up in terms of movements with a camera like this?

    Are "field cameras" the kind that fold up into a box? Monorails have more movements but are harder to transport etc?

    Is a crown graphic like a Speed graphic but without the focal plane shutter?

    With that lens it might be a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4. If it is a 2 1/4 3 1/4, you might get a roll film holder for it; but why bother.
