  1. Re: E6 8x10 labs in Scandinavia/Northern Europe

    Thanks for the kind words guys :)

    Ole,

    Any chance to develop 8x10 sheets in a CPE-2? It takes prints that size but specs don't mention film larger than 4x5.
  2. E6 8x10 labs in Scandinavia/Northern Europe

    Hi all,

    I just moved back to Stockholm after a few years in California and on the road. My favorite lab in Stockholm (Prolabbet) shut down two years ago, I need to find an E6 lab in this part of...

    Re: Should I get a Microtek 1800f?

    The 1800f has a few design flaws that you will only notice with 8x10. The CCD performs best WRT dynamic range in the middle, so for 4x5 it is much better than for 8x10. With an 8x10 you never get...

    Re: Robert White viewing bellows?

    I have one. It's practical for a travel setup, as it packs well - I just leave it on the camera.

    I replaced the loupe with a higher diopter (replaced the closeup lens with a Hoya).

    8x10" monorail: which one?

    Marco,
    I got two Toyo 810G monorails off ebay for $500 each (one for spare parts, as I'm pretty rough on them when canyoning or in duststorms). They are very well built and cost-effective.

    Lenses for 8 x 10

    Great new 180mm to cover 8x10?

    As a counterpoint - with 8x10 you have so much film that a "too wide" lens like the 150XL is very versatile. I use the 150XL as I would use a 90 on 4x5 - I just crop later.

    The 150XL for sure is...

    The problem you run into with telescopic-style leg is lack of torsional stability in the horizontal plane. So if you slap a 600mm lens on your 8x10 it will not be stable even with the biggest Gitzo....

  28. Front Filter on 150 Super Symmar XL

    There is no absolute answer to your question on the need for a spacer. It depends on the filter. With my 47XL I could not use B+W or Heliopan filters threaded all the way in, whereas Hoya...
