  2. Re: Large-ish Format w/ Digital Back and Stitching

    A WA bellows is perfectly usable with a 150mm lens. You can also combine front and rear movements for even greater coverage, but since the lens position changes, perspective also changes. That will...
  3. Re: Large-ish Format w/ Digital Back and Stitching

    Which lens did you use? A wide angle bellows would solve the problem with restricted movements.

  7. Re: Using modern film in mahogany half plate dark slide

    People use Grafmatics, and take care of the sheaths inside. The same principle applies, no? If the adapters and sheaths are well made, they will place the film properly.

    Fuji has been in business since 1934. The current CEO started working at Fuji in 1963 at 24. He became CEO in 2003 at 64, and is still at the helm at 79. Your ideas about "short-term plan" don't...

    It is easy to load film into the sheaths I have. There's no need to bend it or do any "tricks". It just slides in without being loose.
