Hi, can anyone tell me if Graflex ever made a wide agle viewfinder for a 4x5 Speed / Crown graphic? For say a 90mm lens...........

Ive read that they did... but I'm not certain. Anyone know for sure.

Thanks
Rob.

Yes. Hard to find. There was also a supplemental lens that attaches to the regular finder. I b'lieve that Midwest Photo Exchange has a pile of them, check with Jim. See http://www.geocities.com/antjam65/GraflexInfo.html for a picture of one.

Good luck,

Dan

Evidently they did make them. I've seen them on eBay occasionally.

I just wanted to say thanks for the help to you guys.

I did manage to get a wideangle viewfinder, yes they do exist. Looks just like the regular one except it has two lenses stacked one behind the other in the front.



Cheers
Rob
