    Plaubel Makiflex Standard.

    Thought I would show you guys my Plaubel Makiflex Standard, with 150mm F2.8 Schneider Xenotar, which I mounted on a Peco Jr recessed board. Also shown is the Plaubel Peco Jr Compendium Hood, and the 9x9 Plaubel Makiflex back, which puts a 9x9cm image onto 4x5" film. I'm using it with 4x5" spring-loaded Linhof holders.

    Anybody else here interested in the Makiflex or the Pecoflex?

    And Here's a Test Image.

    Makiflex Standard, 150mm F2.8 Schneider Xenotar @ F2.8, 1/60 handheld. 6x9cm Efke 100 cutfilm, in a Plaubel Makina single shot film holder. Processed in ADOX Borax MQ, scanned with my new Epson 4490 refurb.

    I really like the 6x9 format.

    I saw the Makiflex for the first time at a small camera market this year.
    Was quite surprised as I somehow forgot about the existence of this camera.

    Just Bought Another One.

    Just won another one on German Ebay, looks really nice and clean!

    Only 2500 shutter actuations, my other Auto Aperture Makiflex has 28,500 shutter actuations, a sort of slow shutter, and needs some bellows patching. Still love it, though. Both of my Makiflexes came from Stuttgart, owned by an old Portrait Photographer who roamed the streets, taking photos for money. On the back of one, was a paper drawing, done in old fountain pen ink. A sort of framing aid. Cool to know the history of it.

    Can't wait to get it!

    Here's my new Auto Makiflex.

    Auto-Aperture, like a European Auto Graflex. Shown with my new 360mm Schneider Tele-Xenar, mounted to an old Sinar Norma lenscone, and bolted to a flat Plaubel lensboard. Very nice to look through.

    Anybody know what holders this Back takes?

    A Graphic 4x5" film holder is too large. Plaubel listed the following in their catalog:

    #97324 31/4x31/4 back for Single Slides 4x5" MX1/537
    #97486 4x5" Univesal Holder for plates & sheetfilm SG1/377 (use with MX1/537)

    Actual measured dimensions would be approximately 101mmx140mmx7mm for the single shot holder. Or maybe this back takes 9x12 sheetfilm?

    Here are some photos. Can anybody tell me where I can find some holders for this back, so that I can use it? Thanks!
