Hello All:I'm not sure if this is the right forum for my question, but here goes,I've recently aquired two Kodak Premo#8 sheet and plate cameras.One I intend to keep as is and the other I'm considering replacing the ball bearing shutter and lens assembly with a more modern setup.My first question is are there any lens/shutter combinations out there,that are reasonably priced(between $100.00 and $200.00) that would be compatible.The current lens is a planatograph 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 Bausch and Lomb. And the second question would this be worth all the effort and money.

I plan to shoot sheets of B&W film and make post cards with the negs.I would be looking into the possibility of starting a small enterprise shooting various heritage buildings and sites and selling the images as post cards.

Any thoughts?.

Thanks,
Doug
