  1. Re: Schneider Symmar-S Ebay offer question?

    The only major difference is that the Nikkor-W has multicoating which may result in slightly higher contrast and more resistance to flare, but this doesn't really make the Symmar a "worse" lens.....

    Re: Comparison of 110-125mm lenses

    There is a Makro-Symmar 120 HM and a Super Symmar 120 HM. I guess the latter is what is being referred to.

    Thanks Louis - that's the only photo I did find. From the rather small photos I was unsure exactly how it attaches to each standard so I was hoping for a bit more detail or experience. I'll have to...

    I'm considering buying the AWB wind stabilization kit for my homebrew 11x14 but I'm having trouble finding clear pictures of it to see if it is suitable for fitting to my camera. Can anybody post a...

    Personally I prefer the handling of the Saber - the layout just feels more intuitive to me, especially in landscape orientation. In the past I have owned a Littman, and still have a Four Designs...

    Re: Please help me. Horseman viewer

    Unfortunately you are missing the hinged adapter frame for Horseman cameras. Your viewer fits only the Sinar ground glass frame without the adapter.

    Re: v11 deardorff or chamoix 16x20 camera?

    If you enjoy the Deardorff "feel" I echo the sentiment that it is a nice idea to "upsize" from a V8 to a V11. That said I have found that my V11 is really too big and heavy for the kind of things...

    Poll: Re: 11x14 Lenses- Typical Bellows Draw

    The 11x14 that I made is sort of limited to the camera parts I used. It is based on Arca-Swiss rails so that is the limiting factor in terms of length vs stability. I got lenses that suit the camera...

    Re: 6x12 Backs - Horseman or Sinar Zoom or ?
