    .....I'm seriously thinking of dropping the dime for it.

    Cambo%204x5%20Rail.



    Cambo 4x5 monorail. Comes with a case, a Calumet 8½"[215mm]/4.8 (convertible to 14"[355mm]/10!) with an Ilex No 3 shutter and a Calumet 150mm/6.3 with Copal 0. Both lenses are on boards, and a reflex finder/focuser to boot. No film holders, but I have several now.

    The only issue I can find so far is one of the springs that holds the back on is very very weak. This means the focus screen is not tight on one side, and it also won't hold the film holders in properly. But I think I can jerry-rig it until I can get a proper fix done.

    I haven't tested the shutters for speed accuracy, nor actually run some film through to verify no light leaks, but the bellows is 100% good.

    Not the Sinar P2 I've been asking Santa for, but this may satisfy my thirst for a 4x5 rail.

    Nice! Until you get that spring fixed, a bungie cord should help.
