FS, 300mm 5.6 Schnieder Symmar in Copal Shutter

Post by Peter Phipp » Sun Aug 07, 2011 11:54 am Etc/GMT-1+01:00

This is a large format photographic lens for view camera photography with film formats up to 8x10 inch, although it's most common use is for 4x5 inch photography. It has a 75 degree angle of coverage at f22. This results in an image circle of 430mm at f22, which allows shift of up to 158mm vertically and 150mm horizontally with 4x5 inch film. This 300mm long focal length lens (It is not, technically, a telephoto) is of course useful outdoors for landscape photograpy, but also finds a place in product photography where low distortion and compressed perspective are desired.

The high quality of the large format image can immediately be seen by looking at a picture taken using a large format lens. It will have the brilliance, full detail, precision, and sharpness that can only be achieved using this photographic medium. Most importantly, Schneider large format lenses are top-quality lenses that meet all the demands of the photographic industry. In large format photography there is no rigid connection between the lens and the film, compared to that of the small and medium formats. The free movement of lens and film standard enables better correction.
Features:

* Supplied in Copal 3 Shutter
* Image Circle @ f22: 430mm
* Filter Size: 105mm
Price £250 In good condition. Photo available

Hi Peter, very interested in this piece of glass if it is still available. Working down-under in Australia but I have had repaired lenses sent to and from the UK with no problems, obviously I will pay extra for postage.
