Lee w/a adapter on Schneider SS 110 XL

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


I am planning to buy a Schneider SS 110 XL, which has a 67mm thread according the the forum (although the Schneider pdf file says 95mm). I currently have a Lee 67 w/a adapter for Hassy SWC and wanted to know if anyone had used the combination. If so

1) does the lee ring fit?

2) does it vignette?

FWIW, I recently purchased the 110XL and was told that the Lee 67WA adaptor was necessary to avoid vignetting.

I bought the Lee 67 WA ring adapter for my 110 XL in August and I have taken about 100 photos using it, with apertures between 11 and 32 without any problem or vignetting.

To be safe you can always use a step up ring to 95mm, or better yet, have SK Grimes custom make you one that flares out, his prices are less than Lee's.

Bill, the step-up ring may still vignette because of the thickness of two rings. I have the Lee system, but NOT the special WA adapters. I have found with the regular adapters and super wide angles some vignetting occurs.
