Can other lenses be mounted onto the camera?

You can mount a variety of other lenses onto a 4x5 Graflex camera.

Some research should direct you to the types of lenses that would work for your particular types of subjects.

What type of film does the 4x5 Graflex camera require?

The 4x5 Graflex camera requires a 4x5 sheet film, which must be changed after each exposure. There are film cases that allow you to load up to six sheets and quickly change after each exposure. This case may not be available for all models and must be handled carefully to prevent ruining the other film sheet as a result of light leaks. If you are new to using these cameras, experimenting with the film initially may be wise rather than trying to use the film holders right away.
