    Hi all I'm wanting to buy some filters for the 4x5 and was wondering if anyone had used any of the 100 mm system on a Linhof,
    my concern is the tray beneath the lens will it be adequate to use ND grads?
    I'm sure I can make the standard 100 x 100 work also a CPL prob don't need to go that big but would like it to go across a few systems.
    any advice will be appreciated

    I'm not familiar with the camera Leo but I'm assuming you're worried about having clearance below the lens for the 150mm long ND Grads? Is it not feasible to drop the bed slightly and then raise the lens to compensate and giving you that bit extra room under the lens?

    Hi Keith
    thanks for the suggestion,
    I'm happy with doing that with the 180 but with the 90 It does not allow me to do many movements unless I require everything out of focus... ok for certain applications ;-)
    so now I'm looking at the seven5 system will not fit most of DSLR but don't use it landscapes more studio use.
    going to have a look hopefully this week.
    cheers Leo

    Seems like a plan Leo. :) Let us know how you get on.

    Sorry to resuscitate an old thread.....

    Leo - I've pondered over the same question before and the advice i latched on to was to turn the camera 90deg on it's side.

    That way, the long grad filters move across the lens in relation to the baseboard.

    I have regularly been working in low light with wide angle lenses and not discovered the baseboard in the frame until it was too late.
