    Sounds like fun. Rather than waiting to see if it's going to happen, lets just make it happen and do it! What a novel idea eh. I will have to use my Tech IV with a Metz potato masher as I sold my Speed. Although I have a 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 Pacemaker David Goldfarb sold me and it takes sheet film. Lets see, J&C 200 asa film, pushed to 400 ........

    I head up a large format users group here in Calgary. I will send a notice out to all the members to check this thread out and see what we can come up with. Of course the member that uses an 11x14 might feel a little left out LOL.

    Thought this idea was forgotten, but nice to see the thread revived. I think I can set-up my Shen-Hao for this, though perhaps someone could give me some help with one aspect. I made some focus distance scales using tape, marked on one side of the rails for my 135mm, and on the other for my 180mm. I know Linhof and a few other companies had engraved focus scales. So what I wonder is whether I could get those instead, fit them to my Shen-Hao, and have something more accurate than my tape with pen marks.

    Ciao!

    You could probably order some focus scales from Marflex and screw them to the bed of your Shen-Hao and make some sort of index mark (or more than one) to point to the scale.

    On the other hand, I've made focusing scales empirically by focusing and measuring, and I've found them no less accurate for scale focusing than my Linhof scales.

    Thanks David. I see those Linhof ones crop up on EBAY often, and I have wondered if they might be an improvement over my tape method. They certainly would look nicer. I don't think Marflex sells direct, but I can ask my local photography supply store about getting them . . . or I have to try the EBAY thing.

    Ciao!

    I think Marflex would sell parts directly. It's worth a call. Say you had a camera with scales in meters and preferred scales in feet or vice versa. I don't think they would make you send the camera for such a straightforward replacement. I've asked to purchase spare parts when sending my camera for repair, and Martin has supplied them.

    Somewhat by luck I have found a scale for a 135mm, though Burke & James and not Linhof. I am going to try that first, and see how well that goes. Depending upon that experiment, I might order a scale for my 180mm, or maybe a different one for the 135mm.

    Ciao!
