Thanks Rick. I grabbed the pdf.

Unfortunately, the link associated with what you typed is incomplete.

The link of : http://graphics.thehills.id.au/SuperGraphicCam P33 (Rick).pdf
works fine, but that actual "link" of your text is clipped after the 'Cam' so opend to an Error 404 Not Found...

Edit: Ookay, the link is probably correct and there is a problem with the forum software and spaces in the filenames. I copied the actual link and pasted it here and it still doesn't work, clipping after the 'm', where there is a space. So if anyone else wants the file, cut and paste the link text into your browser...

I'll try a BBcode link here. [url=http://graphics.thehills.id.au/SuperGraphicCam P33 (Rick).pdf]Ricks P33 PDF file[/url]
Which works...

So far it just looks like I have a lot of work to do. I never paid attention, but my other 135mm cam turns out to be a P33 and not a P34. So I ave no direct comparison. But after seeing Charle's scans, and a soon to be done comparison with the P33, I gather my P34 is not quite up to snuf...

I also developed an infinity target for the RF so I can do true infinity here in the office. I reset my 90mm cam back to "factory specs"(?), or at least to match my other 90mm cam instead of matching the bad P34 for infinity. I still have to do a lot of comparisons and checking and then do some setups with measured distances and GG louping just to be sure... One of these days

Rick,
Look at the bottom edge of your post, see the symbols? Click on the EDIT button on that post and delete the dead link.

Rich,

A couple more scans found, courtesy Tim Atherton and photo.net
Not sure if you have these or not ...

P 4 90mm http://www.photo.net/bboard/uploaded-file?bboard_upload_id=16636684

P80 206.5mm http://www.photo.net/bboard/uploaded-file?bboard_upload_id=16647084

I still haven't found a P28 for my 127mm yet, but I'm looking !

Hope it helps,
Rick

Thanks for those links!

I found it interesting that the P-4 has an "adjustment mark" on the rear bottom similar to my P-34. Someone must have been doing this at some point?

And the P-90 (really a P-80) is marked "210". It's a little short for a 210mm. I wonder if they were out of focus or they really had a 210 that measured 206.3? Possible I suppose...

Sorry Rich -

The 90 was a typo. P80(206.5 mm) is correct

Now if I can only figure out a way to plot all these curves, then figure out the calculation to make "any" focal length, we'll be right !

Thanks,
Rick

I have a bunch of photos of cams, some I have drawn up with dimensions! Cannot attest to the accuracy, but using the "knowns" (the hole size and spacing)as a starting point, they should be very close!
Email me at
bsaunders1@bak.rr.com
and I will forward all of them!
Have a nice day.....Bert

Thanks Bert, I got your pictures - you do have a good collection of top rangefinder cams !

Are you comfortable having them available to others online ? If so, we might be able to work something out between graflex org, me, or Rich.

Rich, not sure if these will help you (or me) given I at least only have a need for Super Graphic cams. Do you want them to add to your site's collection ?

Does anyone else have any cams (super or top rangefinder) they can scan (preferred for flat field) or photograph ? If so, please feel free to send them to me via the PM address on this site (sorry, too much spam leaving an open address on this page) or direct to Rich S

Thanks,
. Rick
