    Littman 45, anyone used one?

    While this is a 4X5 rangefinder camera, it can take digital backs and 2 1/4 films.

    It sounds intriguing ... take a look:

    Into weird stuff, eh Marc? Have you seen the PaqPro from SKGrimes? It's like a poor man's ALPA TC, lens, body, back: http://www.skgrimes.com/paqpro/index.htm

    The PaqPro XL looks about the same size as my Fotoman 45PS.

    LOL ... that's how I came to know about the Littman ... my wife is a celebrity hound and told me about her gift to Brad Pitt ... he took some pretty nice shots of Angelina ... not that that would be so difficult

    Small world - the wives probably read the same magazines..can't remember where I read it..was a story about the camera ..and the various celebs that use 'em was a big part of the by line.

    It is a beautifully eccentric piece of kit, I rate it alongside the Widelux , and the new Fugi fold out MF kit - interesting enough to check out one time maybe

    then I look at the Alpa and it does everything - sell a Nikon and get one.

    Give the Razzle a try. http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~razzle..._/razzle_.html

    It gets good reports on the rangefinder forum. Haven't used one, but I'd sure like to give it a try.

    How much does a Razzle cost? Can't find the price on the site.

    I have a friend who's selling her six month old converted Polaroid 110. It's a beautiful leather rapped camera with very little use.

    Intresting. I was just looking arount the last days to find a portable, handhold solution for 4x5. Both Razzle and Littman are near (Littman way to expensive) Alpa i dont think is the solution for 4x5. I have look att old Speed Graphics to.

    Ideal would be a Rangefinder with:
    1. Acurate and bright viewfinder and framelines.
    2. A plane off focus exact where i want it.
    3. A lens that is great wide open ( something as 135 3,5 xenotar, or bigger if it would work)
    4. Takes 4x5 quick load and sheet films as 3x4 & 4x5 Polaroids
    and this all for ca 2000 USD max
    :-)

    I may be interested in selling my Littman 45 single.
    Let me know if you're interested.

    PS: I'm in Los Angeles
