    Polyethylene foam is rigid. It's the stuff that "pool noodles" are made of. It can be cut easily to shape and provides good shock absorption. Cut pieces can be glued together to form shapes such as I...

    ULF Pack

    On the suggestion of Jim Fitzgerald here, I looked into canoe packs as a possible solution to the issue of transporting a ULF camera. I decided to try a Kondos 'Outfitter Explorer' with advertised...

  14. Re: Lens on Sinar board without shutter compatible to any other board ?

    Far cheaper to buy a used Sinar camera with a Sinar shutter so you can use DB lenses than to convert even one DB-mounted lens to a shutter mount. And a Sinar camera is no slouch, whichever one...

    That's what I expected to see, Randy, and it's what I've encountered before. You can't convince me that two short springs at the center of the back can provide even (or adequate) pressure along the...

    Re: Agfa Universal 5x7

    Folded, my Agfa 5x7 measures 7 inches front-to-back, 11 1/2 inches tall and 9 5/8 inches wide. The last measurement includes the focusing knobs for the rear standard.

    Agfas are great cameras. I...
  20. Re: ULF 7X17 What size Dark Cloth? What type? I'm new to daylight...

    This is a good point. I have a number of BTZS hoods that work well for me. One [rather large one] works well for 12x20. It's much lighter and more compact when folded than most conventional d-cloths...

    I would not dismiss 4x5 out of hand as a platform for exploring soft focus. That's what I started with when I first discovered the lure of the Wollensak Verito. 5x7 and 8x10 do offer advantages. For...

    Re: ULF Why do it?

    More than enough coverage, Randy. Mine covers 12x20, which is my default test bed for coverage as it's the biggest camera I own.

    Of course, I realized the OP would provoke a lot of responses, but really I had no idea of the support for ULF. Maybe we should consider a ULF sub-forum... :rolleyes: ...Like APUG has. *ahem!*

    Ground glass seduction. Besides, it's fun. Like self-flagellation.

  34. Re: How to install a Zone VI cold light on an Omega D2v?

    It's important to realize (if you don't, already) that a cold light source needs to sit close to the negative. In fact, in theory it is in contact with the negative, although that is not the case in...

    That's very interesting and I was tempted until I saw that registration for the symposium is required in order to take a workshop. That adds another $150 to the cost.
