    Process lenses

    Am I correct that other than the lack of a shutter and the fact that they are flat field, process lenses from a newspaper or print shop style copy camera will work just fine for traditional large...

    Re: Lens for nude shoot

    Unless you are doing very close up anatomical mages, you probably don't need to worry about a bellows factor.

    I would suggest buying a decent meter like a used spot meter or luna pro instead of...

    Re: Help Identifying this Large Format Camera

    Re: Wood tripod, sticky sliding legs

    totally agreed. I had to do the same with my Berlbach although it was no where near this weathered. Anyway a very fine grit sandpaper followed by a refinish and furniture oil worked beautifully.

    Re: Which Cambo do I have anyway?

    Looks a good deal like my SCX which is labeled on the front end of the rail. Does yours not have that front cap? I think that more of the SC series may have also been labeled there.
  27. Re: How can I replace 'dead' spirit levels on a Calumet CC-401?

    First guess would be to remove the back or just push the bellows a bit out of the way and feel for any screw heads below where the levels are mounted.
