  1. Re: Looking for thoughts/experience with mounting a big Dallmeyer 8" lens on a LF cam

    Perhaps use a Sinar or Packard shutter? People on this forum have adapted the Sinar shutter to various field cameras. I think I've also seen references to the shutter portion of the Super Graphic...

    Goodbye Acros Sheet Film

    Yodobashi has officially discontinued Acros in sheet film sizes. I have one order pending, and I'm hopeful they will fulfill it.

    It was good while it lasted.

    Re: Fresh 4" x 5" dry plates

    Jason,

    I have a few plate holders, and will probably order a box or two soon. Have you thought of clipping the right corner, so that the emulsion side is identified, like notches on film?

  20. Re: Sinar - difference between bag bellows #1 or #2 ....

    I use a 35mm Grandagon with a recessed board and a digital back or roll film with the #2 bellows. I can get all the movements I want.

  21. Re: Sinar - difference between bag bellows #1 or #2 ....

    The difference between the #1 and #2 bellows is that the former is a simple bellows, while the latter is double-pleated. The double pleats make it easy to use movements even with very wide lenses.

  22. Re: Sinar - difference between bag bellows #1 or #2 ....

    The catalog explains it well, I think. If you want to use lenses 75mm or below , the #2 bellows is essential. Otherwise the #1 bellows will do. Let me know if you need a #1 bellows.
