    ...you don't have to trade in your Shen-Hao, just spend ~150$ on an old Anniversary Speed Graphic - they are are dirt cheap (because they don't have a graflok back), and their lensboards are simple 4x4inch squares and easy to make.

    ...oh, and that Hektor lens cost me... 10 british pounds or something.

    I ended up mounting the wierd glass inside the tlr onto a spare lens board that i have. It turns out to be super wide-angle and does not cover 4x5. I plan to use it when i get a shutter for it. I also took apart a magnifying glass, and tried mounting that. looks really cool too. I'm going to buy some $10 wooden lens boards off ebay and start messing around with different lenses. should be fun. How do I figure out what f-stop to meter with? that's the only thing that's holding me back at this point.

    I've made two modifications so far (more to come...)

    the rollei sl 66 is great, at it has a bellow system so you can fit odd lenses on it....

    below two exambles;

    first two: old projection petzval lens (Suter "ki" lens.)


    third: old Lancaster landscape lens---

    Send me the Shen-Hao and I'll send you a Calumet CC-400. These use 4x4 plain-jane lens boards.

    Not exactly a fair trade. lol

    I had a CC-401 and I'm not going to use a 4x5 that heavy again. lol

    Awesome! I have the custom mount that allows Copal #0 shutters to be mounted on my SL66 and am currently scouting for interesting lenses to use with it. gadolfi, any portraits taken with that brass wonder??

    The RB-67 has a bayonet mount and a bellows bellows focus system, but lacks a focal plane shutter.

    That didn't stop me from machining an acetal bayonet ring to which I mounted an PVC tubular barrel into which I installed a Meniscus lens.

    Of course, timing is "iffy", since I use the Top Hat Shutter system.
    It works.
    Very nicely.
    Take a look...
