  1. Re: how do you store and organize your extra equipment

    I went to a university surplus auction a few years back and bought 4 6'6" tall 28 inch wide oak storage cabinets with doors for $22.00 each. That worked for a while, until I needed more space.

  3. Re: Cheapest Sectional Frames and Acrylic for Temporary Display

    These guys have an in-house aluminum frame that is so similar to Nielsen that I suspect it probably is. The molding and corners for a 16x20 P1 style will set you back about $13.50. Shipping makes the...

    Re: Other boards for Chamonix 45N-1

    I had a similar problem with my 300mm Fujinon. Last year I bought some generic #3 boards from a Chinese manufacturer and the lens worked like a charm. It may have to do with positioning of the hole...

    Beautiful tonality. When were you around to photograph my bathroom?

  10. Re: Disaster strikes - tell me your stories.

    My first 8x10 Eastman 2D. I had a tripod mounting block on it and didn't lock it down. I was in a hurry to catch some rapidly changing light and grabbed the camera out of the back seat. When I turned...

  12. Exacta Filters: Jo. Schneider and Co.

  16. Re: Lightest & compact tripod recommendations for an 8x10 Chamonix?

    I use a Berlebach 3032 with my Toyo 810M quite easily. Since it's heavier than the Chamonix, it should suit well for your purposes also. I'm with Drew on using a ball head, though. I'm okay using one...

    Re: Jobo 3010 and 5x7 film ?

    I haven't tried that specifically, but two things come to mind. The spacers that separate the 4x5 sheets could potentially cause a mark in the film. (Unlikely, but possible). And secondly, you would...

    Re: Hp5 vs TMY400

    I like HP5 myself. Having never been a fan of Tmax films, my experience with TMY is limited to a single box I shot, so I can't profess to having learned its ins and outs as well as HP5. I had trouble...

    Re: 210mm for 8x10"

    The Fujinon that Dentkimterry mentions give moderate room for movements. I own one and like it very much. Another lens that comes up at an affordable price from time to time is the 8 3/4" Dagor. Wide...

    I have the Version 2 125mm and I love it. It covers 5x7 (albeit with little wiggle room for movements) and is very sharp and contrasty. I would think that any one of them would be as good. But...

  32. Re: Circle of coverage for Ilex Paragon Anastigmat 12"/305mm f4.5 ?
