    Jorge,

    The cameras all have back swing and tilt. Tilt is an axis design. Both the siwng and tilts have pretty good movements so if the camera is used vertically you don't lose any flexibility. I have the templates and plans for optional rear shift and rise, but this does add to the weight and cost of the camera.

    When it gets colse to August 1, I can email you some images and addtional specifications.

    Robert,
    Your idea sounds really neat. Probably not within my price range no matter what. I wish you louck. I am personally stumped on my 5x12. If you were not going to mill your hardware where might you get something like that?

    sounds like you may have exactly what I'm looking for.

    I have a Sinar 8x10 P and have been looking around for a junk Korona 8x20, I only want the back to mount onto the rear standard of the Sinar with new bellows of course.

    Are you able to make me a back, holders and bellows so I can fit them to my camera?

    I also wondered, instead of building a complete new rail camera why not build backs to fit the Sinar system? There's plenty of cheap Sinars out there waiting for the conversion.

    Claytume,


    Right now my primary goal is to build ULF cameras or cameras of hard to get or custom format sizes. Keeping the cost down both for me and the customer is the single most important issue. I can do that by standardizing components, materials and manufacturing between formats.

    At the present time I am quite consumed with getting the current project off the ground. But your idea is a project worth looking into. I have never owned a Sinar P so I would have to see one or have the camera in hand.

    Email or pm me off line and we can discuss it further.

    I have a (un)healthy obsession with the 7x17 format and investing in a camera created by your company would be wonderful introduction into the format..... not to mention it sounds like a much more cost efficient way. I anxiously await your website/pictures.

    Like Clayton, I have a Sinar 8x10 (F2). I would like to convert the rear standard to 11x14. Perhaps this thread will spark enough interest amongst Sinar owners to make it worth your while to investigate.

    Alex,

    Clayton and I have talked off site and I think the conversions are quite doable. I discussed with Clayton building a back with tilt and swing, providing a new bellows and provide an optional 8x10 reducing back so you can still use 8x10 without having to put the Sinar back and bellows back on.
    We can build the 11x14 back to fit either fidelity/lisco holders or my own design. The 8x10 adapter would work with common style holders.

    Contact me off line and I can give you further details.

    Jim sent me some very useful info and very very good prices, hard to believe in fact. One thing you'll note from Jim's reply, he didn't realise the Sinar conversion would only need the back frame and bellows, a standard isn't required as the Sinar standard can be used as is.
    Anyone who hasn't seen a Sinar in pieces will realise how easy the conversion is once they've seen what needs to be made.
    Like you I think a lot of Sinar owners would be interested in the conversion.
