Lens Board Adapters

Lensboard adapters allow easy interchange of lenses from one camera model to another.

A popular method for exchanging lenses between different brands of View Camera is to fit all the lenses to a small, standard lensboard, such as the Linhof Technika then use a “receiver board” which allows another camera to accept them.

Some of these are available directly from the manufacturer, but we can make practically any kind.

These adapters use existing factory or custom lensboards with parts added to make a convenient, light tight arrangement

A two point (in some cases, three point) mount with a sliding clamp at the top (or sides) makes a firm fit of the small board to the large one.

Featured right is a Sinar to Cambo Adapter

Small dimensions make the design suitable for many recessed board applications. This one allows a recessed Arca-Swiss board to accept a Technika/Wista type board

We also now fabricate lensboard adapters for Kodak Master View Cameras

Standard Price: $135.00 each; you supply the lensboards. In applications where material needs to be attached to the parent board, price is $200.00 each. For special cases, please contact us for a current quote.
