ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF THE VIEW CAMERA

Making the change from a hand held 35mm or medium format camera to a view camera is a pretty big step. It can be almost like starting all over again. A view camera doesn't do anything automatically. Lenses must be set manually. Each sheet of film is individually loaded into the camera.

There are no built in meters, so you have to learn to use a hand-held exposure meter. Obviously, a tripod is necessary. The image is upside down and backwards which can be a little confusing at first. A view camera takes longer to set up and use than a 35mm or digital camera.

There are many things the view camera can do that you can't accomplish with a 35mm camera. The view camera records details more finely with its larger negative than you could on 35mm film. For example, a 35mm negative yields an acceptable 8x10" print, any further enlargement and the print becomes grainy and fuzzy looking. A 4x5" negative yields a crisp 30x40" print. An 8x10" negative could be enlarged to wall size while still remaining sharp and detailed.

6x7cm and 6x9cm roll film backs can be used on a 4x5" view camera to carry much more film and still take advantage of the view camera movements. These medium format negatives will enlarge well up to 20x24".

The view camera allows you a great deal more control of the photograph, by taking advantage of the cameras different movements. Some of the more commonly used movements are rise and fall, and tilts and swings. The movements affect shapes and spatial relationships within the image.

Objects in a part of the image can be accentuated, such as the foreground rock of Matilija Creek. Line convergence can be eliminated by keeping the film plane parallel to a building while tilting the lens. View Camera Movements gives greater detail on how manipulation affects the focus plane.



BASIC VIEW CAMERA DESIGN

The basic design of the view camera has changed very little over the last 100 years. The camera, to put it simply, is a light tight box with a lens mounted on one side that projects an image onto a piece of light sensitive material on the opposite side of the box. The rail or bed is the foundation for the rest of the camera and all of its movements.

The front standard is the frame that holds the lens board, the frame can be moved along the rail or bed. This is used for focusing. The lens focuses the rays of light reflected from a scene back onto a ground glass at the rear of the camera.

The lens is mounted into a lens board that fits into the front standard. Lens boards are interchangeable so you can use different lenses of varying focal lengths. You can buy adapters to adapt one manufacturers lens board to another manufacturers cameras.



The rear standard on a monorail camera is almost identical to the front standard. The back standard carries the ground glass and is used for focusing. The ground glass is a frosted piece of glass that captures the image projected back from the lens. The image appears upside down and backwards because there is no reflex mirror as in a 35mm to correct the image.


Film holders are inserted into the rear standard after focusing and composition. This photo shows a film holder only partially inserted. Once the film holder is completely seated the dark slide is removed to take the photograph.
