PAQ PRO XL 6X9 CAMERA SYSTEM
Want a medium format ultra-wide or panoramic camera with a fine quality multicoated lens but can’t stand the $5.3K+ price and would be more interested in 1.8K- ? Dust off the old Graflex XL body and roll film backs because this is the value solution.
The Paq Pro XL utilizes the inexpensive classic Graflex XL bodies, just about any International “G” 6×9 or 6×7 roll film back and mates the latest multi-coated professional lenses with factory focusing mounts from Schneider. All manufacturing of Paq Pro parts and barrels by S.K. Grimes, Woonsocket, RI, USA
The Paq Pro XL camera can be purchased complete with interchang able lens, finder and body or as a conversion for your existing Graflex XL body. (Complete cameras dependent on availability of XL bodies.)
The two basic Paq Pro cameras are “Standard” and “Thin”. Standard body for lenses 65mm and longer focal lengths, up to 150mm. Thin body for lenses 58mm and shorter. Any Graflex standard body, XLRF or XLS can be converted to a SW or thin body with the Paq XL thin body kit.

35mm Finder Equivalents

Accessory shoes for finder
Thin body conversions and the Thin Body hardware kits are now furnished with the high or extra height accessory shoe. The extra height item is great for raising the small finder so you can get your eye to it. Accessory shoes attach to the top plate with 1/4 – 20 x 1/4 inch hex cap screw. T he smaller shoe, can be used with a longer cap screw and an extension tube for even higher positioning. This item and other shoe options are available at professional camera stores.
