I have a Nikon D800 and a Nikon D7100. I assume I can use either camera with the Axella View Camera. But I also have a Toho 4 x 5 view camera with Rodenstock Grandagon-N 75 mm f/4.5,Rodenstock Grandagon-N 90 mm f/6.8,Rodenstock Apo-Sironar-S 150 mm f/5.6,Nikon Nikkor-w 210 mm f/5.6,Fujinon Compact 300 mm f/8.5lenses.Which of these lenses can I use with the Axella, asssuming I get appropriate connectors?
Asked by: Leonard E.
The Horsemen can use many different large format lenses. You need to measure the diameter of the back of the lens. It cannot be any larger than 2.9 / 73mm.And the two adapters made are for a Copal #0 and Copal #1 shutter.
