As far as I'm aware, this company is no longer in business. They produced the Carbon Infinity around 5 years ago, but I think it was too expensive, and there is a limited market for this type of camera. If no one else can help, send me an eMAIL and I'll try to find out exactly what happened - I live in the UK and can speak to some of the previous dealers. I have seen one large format dealer advertising this camera recently.

It uses sinar/horseman lens boards and possiby bellows as well. It was an extremely well made and designed camera that is a hybrid field / monorail design. It was very expensive at the time. Ken Hansen Photographic in New York City was the last US distributor that I know of. Are you interested in selling or using?

The Carbon Infinity 5x4 does not share anything in common with Sinar. All parts for the CI are unique. Since the company went out of business years ago, the camera and parts are extremely difficult to find. It has been rumored that less than 60 of these cameras have been manufactured and are extremely RARE!!!

i was under the impression that it did use Sinar boards based on a distant memeory of seeing the Carbon Infinity at either the 1984 or 1990 Photo Expo in New York City. I must have been mistaken.

I wish it did use sinar boards! I have the Sinar and the Carbon Infinity view cameras and the boards are totally different.

Could anybody email me some pictures of a carbon infinity. I'm curious.
