A couple of more specific questions:  How does the Ektar stack up
against the Xenar?  Does a Graphic have enough extension to use a
portrait lens in the 210 range?

Jonathan,

I got a Crown Graphic 2x3 a few months ago (wanted to stay with 120
film) -- and what got me started was the discussion on this list about
the coated Ektar lenses. Having shot a few ;) roles of film with it, I
can confirm that that's one great lens (at f11 and smaller -- for
landscapes). The main difference between the Crown Graphic and the Speed
Graphic is that the latter also has a focal plane shutter (which adds
weight, and probably something else that can break on a 50+ year old
camera). The Crown Graphic (only) has the leaf shutter on the lens.

Subject: [Rollei] OT: Crown Graphic recommendation

 

I'm finding myself doing quite a bit of 4x5 portraiture and I'm tired of
lugging a Linhof Kardan around, so I'm thinking about picking up a Crown
Graphic.  With so many years of wisdom represented on this list, I
though I'd fish for some recommendations about what to get.  If anyone
can help me determine which model, which features, and most importantly,
which lens, I'd be grateful.

 

Thanks,

 

Jonathan Prescott
