I know some of you are seasoned film photographers who wouldn't think a big deal out of this.

I'm posting this for the benefit of people like me who came from digital, but has since been smitten by not only the history, but also the possibilities of film.

I revived this old camera to become a 4x5 film shooter that is quite compact (as far as LF cameras go). If anyone is curious, here's how I did it.

This is a doable project!! Very nice.
Mine is the 110B model and I have been considering a conversion and I don’t need to spend a lot of money.

Nice job!!

Thank you, glad y'all enjoy the write up.

Fred, this was exactly what I thought. I considered ponying up money for the professional conversions, but in the end, doing it by myself stretches my self-imposed limits and it becomes far more rewarding. And I didn't even like 4x5 format before :)
