Recessed Lens Boards for Tachihara 4x5

Discussion in 'Large Format' started by james_r_babb, Nov 3, 1997.

  1. I can't find any mention in the Calumet catalog about recessed lens boards for the Tachihara/CalumetXM/Osaka 4x5 field. Are these available? Will recessed lensboards for the Linhof Tech fit for, say, a 55mm Grandagon?
    And can a recessed lensboard be used reversed for more bellows draw on a 300??
    Thanks
     
  2. The tachihara takes lensboards made for the
    Tech IV and up. With my tachi I was able to
    use a 58mm lens on a flat board (front base tilt
    + front axis tilt). Recessed boards tend to be
    awkward and expensive. Extension boards are a
    simpler device.
     
  3. I have alway wondered if it would be possible to turn a recessed
    lensboard around and use it to get additional bellows length for
    a longer lens. I also have a tachihara, Thanks
