I recently purchased a 90mm graflex lens in the original factory packaging with the matching cam. I have confirmed that they match and are correct...I am having trouble setting the infinity stops for this lens though. They don't seem to go back far enough.



Here's what I've done so far.....

I put my camera on a tripod...

I set my focus scale so that the two infinity marks match up (for my 135mm lens).

I unlocked the front standard and slid it forward and back until I had an object at least a couple blocks away in focus.

I locked the front standard at that set point.

I found that the infinity stops wouldn't go far enough back to make this spot on the rails the infinity stop. The front standard is just behind the front door hinge when it says it's in focus via the ground glass.

I have the cam for this lens...it's a 90mm in the original Graflex box....so I don't know what I'm doing wrong hah!

Let me know what you think...

A few years ago I bought a pair of "wide-angle" infinity stops on ebay. They have one of the screw-tabs ground off, and thus mount with only a single screw. I assume they would fix your problem.

I don't know if they are a true Graflex part, they aren't listed in the 1965 nor 1973 dealer binders. It would be easy to grind youself a set starting with a normal set of stops.

If you need a photo, please let me know and I'll email you one.
