I am a little confused.
The premise is this - I have an Acra Swiss View Camera (is really cool), the reason for getting it was - to be able use older lenses and have a "freedom" and challenge to mount whatever stuck my fancy, both to learn and discover.
Now here comes the confusion, I have a 180 back, (please jump in anywhere and comment)
1) I know from my Cambo going wide due to the steep angle of the pixels, you need retro focus lenses. ie Rodenstock, this has been a real issue for people having Schneiders and wanting to upgrade their back.
2) There have been some real interesting threads here on the Fat Pixel such as the P40, P40+ P45 P45+ (which are almost full frame) I must say, the shots taken have real nice look to them. That they gather light really nicely, not so demanding on lenses, as 60 and 80 megapixel backs
Would I be better off, getting a second hand P45+ to work on this project? Older lenses (bottom feeding on Ebay) with a more forgiving back? If I am misguided I surely appreciate any and all comments.
PS I have just begun and enjoy the experience, so far shot nothing but a mannequin head and table set up, went out once and shot some at infinity, was cool, but I need to work at this. Then hopefully get something worth printing and sharing.
