lenses for Horseman FA

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I am a biginner in LF. I have Horseman FA field camera. Can I use wide angle lenses 65, 75 mm? What kind of lensboard will I need? I want to use my camera for landscape photografy in California. Thanks.

Dmitri, You will have no problem using 65mm lenses with a standard flat lensboard on this camera. I used a 65mm f7 Horseman lens (Topcor) and got great results. You should flip up that flap in the front though, so you won't crimp your bellows when using the rise movement.
