For wide angle <100mm, RZ body is already too thick.
I'm trying to figure out a way to use my wide angle LF lens on Mamiya RZ.
3021+3047 is heavy.
Do I still have a 90mm wide angle meanwhile the bellow length at infinite become s 180mm?
'if you check the Ebay darkroom accessories section...' You don't even need to bother with ebay. KEH has it, dirt cheap.
Oops, correct url should be: www.geocities.com/h_xd/html/paterson1.html & ..paterson2.html
OK the images can be seen at: www.geocities.com/h_xd/paterson1.html www.geocities.com/h_xd/paterson2.html The dark corners result from too much shift, out of coverage, not processing problem. I...
Hi guys I tried a couple BWs and got the most beautiful negs I've ever seen! I'm going to scan them and report back soon.
I just bought this tank for 35/120 processing and it's great. Today I tried putt ing 2 sheet of 4x5 inside and they fit quite well. I put 500ml of water inside a nd roll it for a couple minutes, the...
Hoya also makes center filters, 2 stop, a lot cheaper. You can buy them from Adorama.
David's idea is even better. The light transparency adapter for flatbed scanner is quite even. Hold it against your lens front so you can custom make CF for different lens. Exciting!
Another fancy idea. I wonder if there is a tool in photoshop allow you to draw a gray circle then fade into a white backgroud, and then print it on transparency to achieve same CF effect.
This lens is available in focusing mount. How is it fixed on lensboard? Screw in to a threaded hole? My crazy idea is to build a WA MF rangefinder out of a roll film holder.
Both the front and rear of this camera can do 15 degree backward tilt. Will it solve the bed problem?
Mr Galli, you're absolutely right. My method now looks really stupid.
I'm looking for a good mid priced field camera that allows adequate movement eve n with WA lens. IMO LF is all about movement. Schneider 72mm XL seems to be the shortest lens with extra coverage so I...
Hi Bob, that's the board I'm talking about. Another thing worries me is if there is enough room to let you finger in to adjust the shutter speed and f stop.
In normal position the part that controls the tilt faces toward you. If you detach the bellow, take off the revolving assembly, take the rear standard out of the rail and turn it around(180...
The lens front is 100mm. The board is 96x99mm. They probably won't fit each othe r, is it correct? BTW have you visited Arch in St Louis? Any WA lens/field camer a can do the job under this extreme...
Today when I dissemble this camera(sold it) I found it maybe possible to mount t he back inward, although only allowing vertical format and losing revolving back function, you can use shorter lens....
Contrary to you I decided to quit(watch for deals at ebay) since I found anything requiring tripod hardly gets any use. My next toy may be Fuji rangefinder. If anyone want cheap centerfilter, go to...
I got that pinkish neg too. You may try 5-10% Sodium Carbonate or Sodium Bicarbonate solution(Hypo remover) to wash it for a couple minutes. Let us know if it works for you.
For those who have a hard time to decide which brand ND grad to go for, I paid t he price and did the test. I picked Hitech because many people here or photo.net recommend it and the price is...
http://www.geocities.com/h_xd/html/strawberry.html Nikon 210mm EL mounted on Calumet 45NX, stop down to f45, Tmax 100 developed in D76(1+1), scan from neg with a Epson 636, no cropping.
I have a wista 6x7, used it once and found 1st and 2nd frame overlap a little(about 2mm), no problem with others but spacing is not consistant. Want to sell, interested?
This is not an answer. But I found at thkphoto website that Hoya also makes ND(x2) center filter. Probably cheaper. Anyone know which shop has it?
This is what you can get from a $160 Epson 636U & its transparency adapter(4x5 slide):
Is your client happy with them?
To show some examples, I posted 4 contact print scan at www.photocritique.net(architecture)
Why not try process by mail? I'd recommend hollandphoto.com, $1.95 a sheet, 10 days turn around, good job, there is a shipping charge though.
If you reverse a lens, how can you control the shutter?
The problem with this site is enough blah, blah, blah! Let's see some real good pictures. This is what LF all about.
Add a large format photo critique forum.
A follow-up to my previous response. Wista holder does have spacing problem: not even, 1st & 2nd frame overlaped a little on mine. otherwise just fine.
Hi Jon, Howard:
I'm also looking for a scanner for 4x5 slides. Could you post a couple sample 4x5 scans from the scanner you have? These scanners are not cheap. I hope I can see some real scans...
And there is no color neg fuji quickload.
This is my first time using a roll film holder, a Wista 6x7. It cost me a roll t o realize that I need to wind two times to advance a frame. I was wondering why the counter only goes half a step each...
I use 405 back which costs less and I did observe polaroid proof is not as sharp as film(using fuji quickload), but, like what you've said, it's decent. I suggest you try a couple slide film first...
Hi Jon, I have two amateurish pictures from 4x5 slides posted at www.photocritique.net under nature, 'A 4x5 shot'&'another 4x5', hope that won't kill your appetitefor LF. They are scanned from...
www.hollandphoto.com, $2.50 for 5x7, donno decent or not.
B&H sells two Wista holders for only $269. This is really cheap compared with those Horseman and toyo models. I almost think BH made a mistake. I got the 6x7, for DX. You may notice there is...
