tecniques protocols algorithms etc for focusing the Flexbody



I would be interested in your tecniques, protocols, algorithms, etc. for focusing the Flexbody. I use the 503CW, and a monorail 4x5, and am interested in the "hybrid" method(s) of focusing the Flexbody without a ground glass, loupe and adjustable bed for adjusting rear tilt, and determining the minimum aperature for appropriate DOF and sharpness. I hope that question made sense!
Hi Berle,

I'm new to this forum, but I see no one has replied to your post. I shoot LF too. When using the Flexbody, I adjust rear tilt to alter the plane of focus then reset the entire camera so the back is vertical; it's an iterative process, but is acomplished rather quickly.

Regards, Pete
