    It is complete

    My Copal 0 lens board arrived today. Now I have a complete LF setup.

    Wista Field
    Nikkor-W 150
    ONE light tight and functional film back (the other needs repair) - this could pose a problem

    Now I just need some film and the learning begins.

    It's never complete . . . . .

    Have fun, Wista's are great cameras to use, and you'll be amazed how many people will stop & talk to you when you use it, just remember when they ask is it old, say it's remarkable what the Japanese make now

    Ian is right. Wista is a great camera to use and it does get a lot of attention and the "it must be really old" comment. I love using mine. Enjoy!

    Congratulations. You are going to get hooked on large negatives. If you haven't already, do check out the large format forum; there are some articles there that might be useful to you.

    A roll film back is very useful, it means you can switch to 120 film when you're running out of film particularly when out shooting all day.. There's a Wista version that has a plate so it can sit under the focus screen if the camera doesn't have the Graflock type back.

    Welcome to the opium den.

    As someone said, it is never complete.
    Technological society has succeeded in multiplying the opportunities for pleasure, but it has great difficulty in generating joy. Pope Paul VI

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004
