This weekend I plan to give my shortened Speed Graphic a try with the little 65mm Super Angulon. The trick to making this work was 1. shortening the body so the film plane was as close as possible to the rail and 2. getting the complete range of focus, from infinity to about 24 inches, accommodated with the front standard clamped on the internal portion of the moving rails.
The nice thing about the Anniversary Speed Graphic is the way the front standard tilts far out of the field of view of even this fairly short lens. This is my attempt to show you in one shot the leather covered lens cap and matching leather covered baseboard. Moving the baseboard wiggled the front standard a bit, so the words Speed Graphic have ghosts.
