    Ektachrome Space Profiles

    I have been using Joe's chroma set for at least a year, probably two, for both film and digital captures. They work very well. From email discussions with him I believe he developed them for his use...

    Schematic for Silvestri 6x Tilt Loupe

    Does anyone have a schematic or know how the lens/spacer assembly goes? The spanner nut inside the tube on mine came loose in the field - I don't believe I lost any parts but everything fell out....

    VueScan on Mac OS X

    I have had much trouble with VueScan on a dual processor Mac running OS X (probably 10.2.8 at that time). There is much to like conceptually in this software. VueScan certainly has all the right...

    Convenience in the Field

    I use a Gitzo 1325 too. The one problem I grappled with it is the lack of spikes (I understand there is now a video version of it that has them). The 1325 has shallow cone shaped plastic caps as leg...

    stitching 4x5s on a Mac

    Frank, Photoshop CS (8) for Mac OS X has automatic stitching built in. I have used it once or twice for putting together an image that was too large to scan in one piece. It worked pretty well.

    My Ebony 23S, purchased new last summer, is exhibiting some lack of rigidity in the standards. With the camera set up the standards will rock front to back a bit. The standard assembly, including the...

    Schneider 65mm f5.6

    I have and use a 65/5.6 SA multicoated on a 6 x 9 cm Ebony. I am very happy with it used for that format. But I doubt I would be happy with it for 4 x 5 because of limited coverage. Even without...

    How do you expose color neg film?

    I do pretty much the same as Hogarth: Expose for the shadows and scan for the highlights. I use 160 NC and 160 VC using an index of 100. It is roll film in my case.

    I have always wondered about...

    Operating Systems

    I too work in a mixed environment with XP and 2000. Whether they are G3's, G4's, or the 64 bit G5's, it is really hard to beat Macs and OS X for just getting image work done. No RAM maximum concerns,...

    Are you not aware of the toxicity of some of these chemicals? And children are often even more sensitive than adults.

    Gitzo 3 way head stiffness

    I have a Gitzo 1270 M low-profile 3-way head where the lower tilt (the shorter tilt knob) is way too stiff. Is there an adjustment for this? None is obvious to me.

    Thanks in advance.
