Prinzdorff Boards Are Here

I got my Prinzdorff (4x5, 5x7 camera) lens boards today sent to me from the states by Zbyszek. They look so nice, very well made, fit perfectly. Zbyszek also repaired the original sample board that I sent to him. I now have 4 boards with copal 0 size hole and 2 with a copal 1 size hole. More than enough boards for the life of the Prinzdorff camera.

I plan on my return to Canada to send him my Korona board and have multiple boards made for that camera as well which will allow me to use it for 4x5 and 5x7 wet plate work. Those Korona boards will have various types of brass lens attached, including some beauty Petzvals from the late 1800s

Here is what the beauty Prinzdorff boards look like:
