Picked up the latest issue of Photo Techniques (May/June 99) and after reading a n article about view camera sharpness, curosity got the best of me and I proceed ed to check my 8 x 10 Kodak Masterview metal camera. Well, like the author, I wa s more than surprised to find that the ground glass is being held closer to the lens than the film in the film holder. I would have thought that I would have no ticed the lacking of sharpness and pursued a solution for a problem that I would have noticed myself. Because of the fact that it is a metal camera and can be m anufactured to high tolerances, I am more than a little bummed that I did not ve rify this relationship earlier.
I use new Fidelity film holders.What suggestions would anyone have on who would be able to more accurately assess my situation and rectify it ? Would they need to add a shim ? Anyone local to me in Denver ?
Thanks in advance.
