But don't wash a Deardorff GG.
I bought a p30 s3s tripod and a 43f head. for my wife's birthday, anniversary and Mother's day. (When you get older that's the sort of thing you do)
It's a great piece of travel kit. She was happy...
Well, I have the Arsat 30mm and the Hartblei 45 super rotator for a Contax 645 and think them fine lenses. they were what took me to your posts and I enjoyed reading them.
No one has said any thing about the east European lens makers; I found this.
Interesting in several ways
as ken said a second ago.
In addition the colour of the final print changes with heating the developer, as well as other characteristics
Van Leo in Egypt
August Sander in Germany
Hashem El Madani in Lebanon
I think what Paul is referring to is chromatic aberration, which in Panchromatic film would lead to an overall defocussing of the image rather than a focus shift (as the different wavelengths of...
If the object is to use the Packard shutter, you could build it in a box and attach ordinary 4x5 lens boards front and back to the shutter box. then mount it between two 4x5 standards on the front of...
Vinney's is nice. I got my Deardorff's 5" plate from
Henry's and B&H carry this manufacturer.
It's worth lookin through their stuff
No one is being rude.
If any one wants to stop this thread they simply have to not reply.
If people reply, they have something they need to say.
The second nobody replies to Drew the thread ends....
If you can get something like this
You can enlarge...
I have an earlier one with a built in focussing mechanism, but no you can't really see the elements move, the way a Universal Heliar moves. You can perhaps see a bubble or the side of the lens move...
PS: I think Karsh's 1938 camera is an Agfa Ansco.
I agree with trying to not fill the frame; leave room for cropping, to accomadate the side to side movement.
And use more light and a smaller f stop to allow more depth of field to accomadate the...
Karsh started off with a camera from John Powis's studio, unlikely to have been as modern a camera as a Deardorff. By 1938 Karsh had switched to the white camera shown in the second reference.
Thats just marvellous. I am very pleased for you.
You have peaked my interest.
It is an excellant piece of kit for contact printing; after all a 1/4 inch of glass will certainly keep things together. Just not for registering multiple layers of masks. I Use it and love it. Worth...
have a look at this
Out of town, maybe the Cheltenham badlands, or perhaps take the ferry across the Toronto harbour and see Toronto islands, a sort of quiet country in the city community and get the sky line behind you.
You should pay the minimum bid difference between you and the next losing bidder.
Completed listings last went for $385, but then you could check that yourself. An analogue sinar shutter might very...
Statistically you will be right either way, but I am going to give it a shot at my next session.
A photograph of Oscar Wilde was the subject of the landmark Burrow-Giles Lithographic Company v. Sarony Supreme Court case (1884), by which the protection of the copyright law was extended to...
Platt D. Babbitt had the rights to Niagara Falls in the 1850's.
I am thinking a very long black leather(to go with the theme) coat or some other dark length ways coat or drape, that she can expose parts of her and her outfit length ways and that will merge into a...
Close up bits and bobs will hide the total picture.
Drapes and pillars and posts or corners of doorways along the length of her to reveal and hide.
Tilting the back of the camera will bring...
In the darkroom you can tilt your print and stretch out a face.
Quite possibly, I know many people who legally sign with an X...sadly
Not being an American, I am not a party to this, but my understanding is that one needs to prove American Citizenship to get back into the US.
I always use the railway bridge just past the main...
Would you care to elaborate on what you mean by strange?
I have kept my eyes open for several years now for just this thing, No success yet,; I haven't searched out a glass blower yet.
If you are comparing contrast and development times don't you have to force one tone (say middle grey) to be the same in each print?
You will likely need to modify the setup. There are several threads about this type of thing here.
Ah, You are a kinder man than I.
The companies have to make up some dimensions. As you say a bit of research and design. Unless the real problem is the samples of ArcaSwiss plates, they buy to...
Very interesting review.
This is the first I have heard of a screw QR release being too loose.
I am experiencing the same frustrations with the flip lever QR clamps and a variety of RRstuff,...
Patrick "Gadget" Gainer would have argued with your distain of the teaspoon as a photograaphic measure.
I am thinking that if you dissassembled the old GG with gravity, it would have been pretty obvious if there was a piece of plastic left in the back of the camera. I expect younever had a fresnel to...
In my opinion, the digital manipulation of images represents the final triumph of Pictorialism over Straight photography, a conflict first started 100 years ago, thought to be over by the 1950's, but...
Wow such a bunch of different answers. Looks like Ed is the one who has actually used this model. Maybe you can post a picture.
most peoples idea will involve something like half way down this...
