Wonderful! Looks gorgeous.
Those lenses sound like they are for 120 film anyway -- AFAIK, none of them cover 4x5 sheet film...
I have sheet film cameras from 4x5 to 16x20 Wisner..the cost per sheet today over 15 years ago..is staggering..and even roll film..at $6- per..
I think the 180 Sonnar will cover 4x5..and 6x9 w/moves..
Did it come with a grip and is that a 6x7 or a 6x9 Super Rollex back? A very nice set, easy to see why you're excited!
Yes..it came with a bunch of accessories..viewing magnifier 6x9 back..and right angle viewer etc..
I really just got the kit for the Biogon..as I already have a Tech V reg style..(rangefinder on the side..) and planned to use the Tech 70 for spare parts..
But the 70 is so nice with built in rangefinder and Leica style viewfinder..I think I may like it better..as well as it is a portrait mode cam..which is really cool..
Wonderful set up what a set of dream lenses. My same version 80mm Planar is a favorite lens on a Baby Graphic.
I have the Schneider Xenotar 80mm F2.8 on my other Tech V...and it is stunning..
I wonder how it will compare with the Planar..I will test shortly..
But truth be told..I think I may like the 2x3 Graphic better..as it is really just a great camera..
So I had to remember everything..to operate this camera right...as I forgot all that stuff after 10 years..
The Linhof will tolerate no fools..
As in..this cam has a million ways..to mess your shot up..or break the camera..
So..I got the film loading right..
Every lens has a slightly different shutter makeup..I'm glad the Biogon has a self timer as my cable release wont work on the Linhof shutter w/o the lil adapter thingy..
The rest of the lenses I just used my finger to trip it..
I dont care for the grip w/cable..so I removed it..
Stick the lens on..make sure the cam is the right one for that lens...bring the bed to the proper setting for a specific lens (there are 3 different settings)..bring lens to the proper bed setting (there are 3 stops...) then drop the bed if using the Biogon..tilt Biogon back to make for parallel..open up lens and compose/focus..close and stop down..remove GG back...put film back on..advance film..cock shutter...remove darkslide..then..click..put darkslide back in..
Then do it all again..for your next shot..lol..
In some ways..8x10 is a lot easier..
But that rangefinder.. for quick grab shots..is nice..
But it comes in at around 7 lbs..w/Biogon.
My 5x7 is 3lbs..and 8x10 is 9lbs..
So this is no lightweight..
The smaller "poolstick" Ries tripod seems to work great too with this format..just light enough..but so solid..unlike carbon fiber..
And the Bogen geared head..makes composition a breeze..
Will probably make a vid soon and upload to youtube if interested..
Now to develop the test film..
Better not be any light leaks..!
