    Re: Cooke XVa and ULF?

    The depiction of "sagittal" seems to resemble the "swirlies" that a lot of folks admire.

    Re: Cooke XVa and ULF?

    Yesss!!!

    Curious, too, what the actual effect of astigmatism is on a photographic image. I've tried reading the definition of astigmatism over and over again, but every time I get to tangential...

    Re: Question about Ebay Sinar

    That is a collection of Norma parts, but far from being a complete camera. Besides the fact that it is missing the back and ground glass carrier, it does not have a front standard. It has an...
  6. Re: Applying a Sinar Copal Shutter on Taylor Hobson Cooke 325mm and Chamonix whole pl

    Thank you. But in all honesty, I cannot take credit for the work. I chose the platform (Kodak Master) and did the design based on what the Master gave me to work with. I provided the specifications...
  7. Re: Applying a Sinar Copal Shutter on Taylor Hobson Cooke 325mm and Chamonix whole pl

    Take a look at this thread to see the amount of work it took to adapt a Sinar shutter to an 8x10. The project was successful, but it was very expensive and a lot of trouble and waiting for parts to...

    Re: Scanning ULF Prints for Web

    Thanks Randy. The lens I grabbed this morning is an old Non-AI 50mm, f/2. I figured I'd lose metering even before I determined that it was Non-AI. But that's OK. I could find the correct setting by...

    Re: Which case for Sinar Norma 5x7?

    I can't speak of the Norma-specific 5x7 case. I don't think I've even seen one. I use the blue top-loading case which I think is P-vintage. Wasn't sure if it would fit, but emailed back and forth...
