    Silliness for today: Hasselblad 110mm planar on 4x5

    Wanted something around a 35mm f/2 on 4x5 with a coupled rangefinder.



    The Zeiss Planar 110mm f/2 i s ~36mm-equivalent. Covers a 4" square at infinity once I took out the baffles in the back. If I cut the back of the lens off I can actually get all the way out to 4x5, but...

    This makes me want to find a Zeiss 350mm f/4....

    Hmm.. 110mm - 60+ degrees? Are you sure?

    Not picking , just curious.. I guess i need to try and see if 80/1.9 mamiya sekkor will cover 4x5.. Most likely not, but hey..

    as the lens is focused closer using the barrel the focal length shortens and it's no longer a 110mm lens so the image circle increases even though the angle of view doesn't.

    If not 4x5, I know it covers 6x6 and probably 6x7 - sharp in the corners? Pffft, that's not what we use these lenses for anyway!

    I'm just up in Denton, once I get all the kinks worked out you're welcome to give it a shot!

    The 110/2 is a Zeiss Planar, for 4x5 there is the used Zeiss Planar 135/3.5... not cheap ... but reputable character...

    ... or Schneider Xenotar 150/2.8... that too not cheap ... but reputable character...

    Regards

    I'm full of ****, that doesn't make enough of a difference. The big thing is you're thinking of what Zeiss says the image circle is--THEIR usable circle is a different definition than my usable circle because I don't need sharp corners by any means -- I'm into this for the character.

    Meh.. I have 2.5 and 3.5 - 160-180mm petzvals for that range Granted - they need shutters to be used on anything but speedgraphic, but hey.. For artsy portraits i'd take them any day over the Zeiss. And for "sharp" uber ones - there are other lenses. I have issue with Zeiss lenses anyway... Never truly liked them Xenotar i'd get , to compliment my 100/2.8 but i think chances of me finding it for any sensible money are slim to none. So that will wait till other day

    Thanks Jeremy, i just tried it. Interestingly enough - Mamiya 645 mount is very very nice fit for Copal #3 hole on Technika boards.

    It (80/1.9 Sekkor) "almost" covers 4x5 wide open. Should be ok for 2x3 i guess. May get around to make lensboard for speed graphic (i got old one, so wooden 4x4s , made out of plywood work like magic), and play.

    nice look to it.... hassyflexaplungerish...
    I assume you can still use your Hassy 2* body..

    sheet film does have great possible combinations, and big sheets are so much easier to work with than those Hassy cut film things

    nice to see this here

    yes, it's a medication requiring a jeweler's screwdriver and 3 minutes to put the baffle back in -- removing it had an effect similar to taking the baffle out of a Holga -- the edges went more smooth. I actually don't even have to put the baffle back on to shoot it on my 2000fcm, but will have a little more flare.

    My 2* series body is actually dead after a friend loaded a roll backwards and ripped the shutter out so this is the only way I can shoot the planar!

    don't know if it will help, or if this works, but here is a link that may help.. or frustrate

    he fixes? those delicate 'Blad shutters... many THicK fingered assistants got their walking papers just touching that thing...
