Got a 65mm Super Angulon - Wondering what to do with it. Perhaps a 6 x 12 camera.
I have acquired a 65mm f8 65mm Super Angulon lens in quite good condition. I'm now thinking about what to do with it.
I'm going to make a lens board for it which will fit both my speed graphic and my home made 5x4 camera but I'm not sure if either of them will work this short.
I have an idea in my mind about building a 6x12 format camera with the lens fitted at the hyperfocal distance for either f16 or f22. I just need to find a suitable viewfinder - something similar to 20mm on 135 should be about right with the top and bottom masked off a bit. Any ideas?
I would be interested to see if anyone else has made something similar with one of these lenses.
Will I need the centre filter (which I don't have) or will it be o.k. at reduced coverage and stopped down?
