    Re: Big Pano Camera Advice?

    I've used 7x17 and 6x10. I still use a 12x20. When choosing a lens to use, it sometimes helps me to think of the nearest "conventional" format that the long format could be cut from and then consider...

    Re: Advice on new tripod head

    Is it safe to assume that your camera is usually level? Do you need a tripod head at all? If so, then would a simple leveling head work and save you some weight?

    You can try extending the process time. Realistically, if it's OOD or previously frozen, you're on your own, so good luck!

    Re: 6X10 Format

    Re: Wollensak lens

    Velostigmats are good general-purpose lenses. Series IV was an f/6.3 anastigmat. Should be very serviceable, but I confess I've never used a series IV specifically.

    Re: Copal 1 240mm that covers 8X10??

    This was taken with a 240mm /9 Docter Germinar-W. Admittedly it's not the best image for showing detail, but it gives some idea of the lens' capability.

    Re: What is it?

    Jon's camera is shown again on pages 8 & 9 of the 1941 Agfa catalog at Cameraeccentric.com.

    They're pretty rudimentary cameras, but completely competent for the job for which they were designed.
