The 5x7 format sits perfectly between 4x5 and 8x10, offering a larger negative and even more clarity than 4x5, without sacrificing portability. Another big advantage of 5x7 is the range of lenses you can choose from, allowing you to use many 4x5 and 8x10 lenses as well as those designed just for 5x7. We’ve also created 4x5 reducing back which will allow you to shoot with Graflok compatible backs as well as 4x5 sheet film.
The Intrepid 5x7 is a "bring your own" lens camera, but thankfully large format lenses are readily available secondhand. You can use lenses from 120mm - 360mm mounted to one of our Intrepid 5x7 lens boards. The advantage of 5x7 is that you have the option to use many 4x5 and 8x10 lenses as well, so you may well be able to use lenses you already have. We created a special lens board (108mm x 108mm) which will allow for the most versatile lens choices without sacrificing portability. So you can mount larger 8x10 lenses to compact 4x5 lenses with no issues.
We currently stock Bergger Pancro 400 ISO film in 5x7, which is renowned for its incredible clarity and wide exposure latitude. Fomapan and Ilford also offer 5x7 film stocks which we should be stocking soon. If you are looking to experiment paper negatives can be a great inexpensive way to get used to the format and produce some amazing results!
