    Chamonix 4X5 and universal bellows

    Can it handle a 75mm lens like a fuji or nikkor without a recessed board? will it have decent movement?

    Pending a response by someone who owns one, the specs suggest that a 75 should mount on a flat board with no problem:

    I used a 65mm on a flat board with mine without issue -- if I had to guess, I'd say I regularly used up to 10mm shifts without issue. IIRC, I even used a 47 on a flat board without issue, though I could not impart more than a few mm of shifts -- of course a few mm is all you have with that lens anyway.

    hey Jack thanks, I am reshooting a space for a museum show next year and wanted to get some good 4X5 shots, I really want to do 40X50 prints but have yet to find a really good mounting solution.

    thanks again
