Sinar p2 View Camera Large Format

p2 View Camera

The p2 is based on asymmetric tilts and swings, not the traditional center or base tilts. This means rapid and precise settings, without ever losing sharpness on the axis.

Model Reviewed: Sinar p2 View Camera
Strength:

Its modular design (you can buy it in pieces)makes it suitable, if not superb, for most LF needs. The one I assembled for my studio food photography has been in daily use for 10 years with minimum of servicing. All 4x5's are cumbersome in use but this one gives great transparencies and offers me the luxury of observing the ground glass with both eyes, sitting in my chair.

Weakness:

The metering system, Sinar Booster 1, outlived my old Minolta flash meter, and their newest model (Minolta Flash Meter V) is not fully compatible with Booster 1.
The electronic shutter was not worth the price, so I switched back to the mechanical one.

If one can afford this camera there's a reliable tool for at least the rest of one's life. What more can I ask?

Strength:

asymmetric tilts and swings, Yaw free, great effects for landscape and portraiture with that "shimfleug" effect

Weakness:

none

It has all the appeal of a true studio camera with all the history of photography to back it up.

Customer Service

It is very adaptable for fine art photography and still lifes. My customers get into the black cloth idea of posing for a portrait like at an old timey studio.
