Iam looking for a lens board and wide angle lens for my Crown Graflex 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 camera. I tried E-Bay, B & H, and various camera stores that deal with large format cameras with no luck. Does anyone out there know where I can get these items? Also a telephoto lens for my camera. Thank you. Kevin

Boards for 3x4 Pacemakers are hard to find. www.skgrimes.com offers boards for 2x3s and 4x5s. Ask 'em, asking is cheap.

The 10th edition of Graphic Graflex Photography lists 2 1/2"/6.8 and 3 1/4"/6.3 wide angle lenses for the 3x4 Crown. These would be, respectively, the 65/6.8 Optar/Raptar or Angulon and the 80/6.3 Wide Field Ektar. Both turn up fairly often on eBay. If I wanted a 65 to use on a 3x4 Crown, I'd look for a 65/8 Ilex or a 65/8 or 65/5.6 Super Angulon. Just about any 75 mm - 85 mm w/a lens that will cover 4x5 will do for you. So will the 90/6.8 Optar/Raptar and Angulon. Seek and you'll find.

About teles, GGP lists the 10"/5.6. This would be the 250/5.6 TeleOptar/TeleRaptar. Both turn up on eBay. Be patient, be prepared to bid high enough. There are others. For that matter, your camera should be able to focus any 200-210 mm lens in shutter. There are many, many such. Seek and you'll find.
