What camera and lenses do you use for that, Foodguy? I've been wanting to go the same route, myself.

I use a Leaf on a sliding back though I believe there are adaptors to mount DSLR's as well as a few other Cambo options for using DSLR's with camera shifts.

When I made the switch to digital, I sold off my 4x5 and 8X10 cameras but kept my film lenses to see how't they'd work in the digital world, as the out of pocket for the back/camera was already significant.

Ended up selling my 210mm and 360mm as they were simply too long (for me) for the sensor size and kept the 90, 135, and 150. I rarely use the 90 as it's a wide angle design and float between the other 2, depending...and truthfully could easily live with either. I prefer slightly long lenses for the pictures I take and would love to find a reasonably priced ~100mm F 4ish lens simply to try...but haven't yet found one.

I realize you posted this back in January... but I can give you a couple of examples...

Wow, your post is one of the most well-written and informative posts I've read in a long time! Thank you for taking the time to contribute this to the POTN community.

Cheers,

The 1.4TC does fit on the 24mm MKII, I prefer that focal length over the 24mm honestly!

Ask yourself, if you had a TSE 17mm lens and a TC 1.4 and they fit , wouldn't you have to try it out a couple of times ?

When you first start using a Tilt Shift lens, things slow way down, but he more you use it, the faster and more confident you get. After awhile, it becomes second nature.

I absolutely love my 24 TS-E!

I have an old Ektar 105mm that came off a long gone Baby Crown Graphic. It's only single coated so contrast is on the gentle side and flare can be a problem, but it is quite good for it's era (50s). I also have a 152mm Ektar that came from a full sized Crown that has similar properties.

Seems odd to use such a lens on a digital back and I haven't done it, but it might be worth a try. Those old Ektars were pretty good lenses.

They were good for the large area of film that they were designed to cover & the small amount magnification needed for prints, but were not even close to the resolving power of a lens designed for 35mm film, so you might be disappointed.

I have a Nikkor W 105mm that I picked up used from KEH that is actually pretty good on 35mm. I use it and a Nikkor 210mm on my Cambo.

Surprising how good some of these old lenses can be.
