Did Graflex make a pistol grip similar to Linhoff for better controll that can be attaccheg wor handheld with our too meck mod. Comming from 35mm I need some time to exoloit somethin like this to reduce cam shake and other factors. I've tried variou techniquiques and neet to ofset when not shooting on a triop. Thanks "o" experiece ones.P.S. I gueass I coud make one, but does anyonr hsv s solution that conforms to the elegant Pacemaker?

(1), yes, for the Century.

(2) Use the strap, that's what its for. Left hand under strap, fingertips wrapped around the front and into the box. Also support the camera with the right hand.

Handheld I use the Graflite # 2773 battery case (red button) with two batteries and a dummy to fire my shutter/solenoid and/or flash. Left hand as above. The added weight doesn't bother me.

It also clears my Cambo C2N 120 film back. I then cock the 2773 at a 45% angle for better access to the red button.

When using with a flash (either a 5" or 7" reflector) I make sure that there are (3) fresh D batteries in the #2773 tube(Most of the time I use my BC-Cartridge instead of D batteries because it is lighter and more dependable.).

When I use an electronic flash it is mounted on top of my #2773 tube with a rubber plug and flash-shoe attachment.

Years and years ago, I made a wooden grip to attach to the tripod socket on the left side of a "Century" (I have not seen the "Century" grip referenced in several posts here). I decided, after some use, that the original strap is better and more convenient, as it surely is on a 4X5.

With two hands grasping the camera, one through the strap and one either beneath the bed ("Anniversary" or "Century") or gripping the lower right of the body, you're in a good position to minimize shake. The camera itself has a good deal of inertia, which helps.

I was able to find an adapter plate for a Linhof grip on eBay (many years ago...and also saw one at B&H Photo in New York). These were made for more modern Crown and Speed Graphic cameras. With it, you can attach a Linhof grip onto your Crown Graphic. I haven't seen one of late, but they show up every once in a while. If you need more assistance, I can try and send some pictures.

Ebay has a Linhof grip and what looks like a bracket that will allow you to mount to a late model Crown/Speed Graphic camera. The bracket is similar in appearance to the one mounted on my Pacemaker Crown Graphic.
