    If you're shooting architecture, perhaps interior window lights would be more prevalent in the evening with late workers. Just a thought....

  6. Re: Folmer Schwing Commercial View - Var.#2

    Thanks for the clarification Louis. The bed of my 11x14 with all sections in place measures 52", so would benefit from the longer platform.

    I have that camera in 11x14 with the extended rail. Louis says 57"; I measured it at 52". Substantial in either case. Mine came with an 8x10 reducing back. In fact, the Ebay seller advertised it as...

    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...

    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.
