Will I need a 4X5 bag bellows for 90mm SA XL - architecturegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I am buying a Horseman 45 LE from Badger with a 90mm SA XL, for use in architectural photography. I shoot mostly new institutional buildings; tall-ish one-stories, with an ocassional 4 story university bulding -- on Fuji RVP. Also, I shoot some lobbies/foyers. Will I need a bag bellows? Thanks, Paul

The standard bellows on a 45 LE would severely restrict shifts and rise/fall with a 90mm lens. You would be much better off with a bag bellows.

If you want to get the full capabilities of your wide angle lenses you'll need a bag bellows. Actually I think for lens of 180mm or less a bag bellows makes an excellent standard bellows for everything except close up work.
