    Didn't have time to do more than skim the text, but liked what I read. Will finish it later. The photos are stunning! You have captured a very ethereal feeling in your work. Thanks for sharing.

    Robert White Ebony Viewing Bellows?

    One more opinion: I bought mine used, it worked great. However, it didn't take long for it to need a shot of Viagra. After several uses it got VERY droopy, so much so that I now leave it at home and...

    Out of Date Velvia 50

    I buy all the outdated (read: cheap!) Velvia I can find, but that's typically from photo suppliers who have had it stored in the fridge. I'd definitely follow Jim's advice, and then some: shoot a few...

    Scanner

    I've just recently started using a 3200 combined with Silverfast Ai, and it is amazing for 4x5, not so much for medium format. I've printed sections of 4x5 scans that would equate to 16x20 and 20x24...

    Velvia 50 revisited

    Alan, I would say that pretty much verifies what Jerry what's-his-name was saying. Not all meters are calibrated the same. The difference is bourne out in your differing standards for 4x5 vs. 35mm.

    large filter sizes on Fujinon lenses

    Ebony 45SU

    My RW45 has zero detents for front and back tilt, front swing. They seem solid, but not so much so that you can't set the position very close without falling back into the detent.
