    Here is the other one I use with a standard lens and the modified one with a standard and the 15" lens. They are both ex military, I am guessing from WW II. Newt_on_swings, thanks they are antique Chinese from my Great Grandfather.

    5X7 ~ 4X5 didn't matter as the papers would crop what they wanted out of whatever size neg the photog brought them. I would think 5X7 might increase your "chances".

    Here's a page from a 1959 (I think) Burke and James Cat. $800 1959 bucks would stagger you now I suppose

    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep..to gain that which he cannot lose. Jim Elliot, 1949

    $800 in 1959 is equivalent to about $6,225 in 2011. See http://www.bls.gov/data/inflation_calculator.htm
