    I have been getting my Graphic lens boards through Midwest Photo Exchange in the US, they have them in both copal 0 and 1. I use a Rodenstock Grandagon 90mm f/6.8 and am looking at getting a Nikkor-SW 65 mm f/4.

    The hint was so subtle it took me half an hour to decrypt, however I got it and thanks, it seems a good product at a reasonable price. Do they have the machinery to produce new units, or do they have an old stock of boards?

    I assume that they are newly manufactured as opposed to new old stock. They don't have any of the numbers stamped on them that my one original board has on the back.

    I must have 4 or 5 of these boards and they are as good as any other Graphic boards I own, a very good match to riginals. But I have cast Pacemaker Graphoc boards and allsorts

    A 4"x5" Graflex Pacemaker Speed will take a 90mm lens which is the widest wide angle lens that can be used on it.

    A 4"x5" Graflex Pacemaker Crown will take a 65mm lens which is the widest wide angle lens that can be used on it.

    You really should be more careful about laying down the law.

    The 4x5 Crown's minimum extension is 52.4 mm. The 4x5 Pacemaker Speed's is 66.7 mm.

    The shortest Super Angulon XL that will make infinity on a 4x5 Crown is the 47, on the Speed is the 58. Go look up some other lenses.

    Ok, I stand corrected.

    I only have a Speed Graphic.

    Good morning, Steve and Dan;

    Thank you for the discourse on WA lenses for the Graflex Crown Graphic and Speed Graphic. Now I know the limits for a WA lens for my Speed Graphic.

    Finding a Wide Angle lens is going to be easy. I would like to find one of the Kodak Aero-Ektar 2.5/178mm lenses for use on mine also. A total of three "C" lens boards should be enough.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Dan, a problem here is that websites like Graflex.org state. On one page they state a lens less than 80,, can't be used on a Speed Graphic, elsewhere that's contradicted.

    Are they using the FP shutter, and then shutters vary slightly anyway on pre, Anniversary and Pacemaker Graphics.


    There's another issue missed, what lenses can be used with the Wire finder, I use the wire frame finder all the time as I use my Graphics when I'm having to shoot hand-held.

    Unfortunately my Crown Graphic lives in Turkey and my emascaluated Pacemaker Speed (it's shuutters been cut away ) and pre-Anniversy Graphocs are here in the UK.

    There#s possibly a third issue with the shutter box getting in the way when ries or fall is used.

    Thank you for the vindication.
