  1. Re: Lightening the non-load: Dispose of Metz Mecablitz SCA300 or keep?

    Dunno. Will check in the morning. Thanks. I do know I bought it as described: "dry cell battery and charger" which probably means it is a nicad and ain't the lead wet cell. Gels came later I think....
  2. Re: Lightening the non-load: Dispose of Metz Mecablitz SCA300 or keep?

    Right. Went back and looked more closely. It is a 60-CT-4 and the battery brick that goes with it. Have unit to link it to a Rolleiflex, but not sure what I'd need for a LF Chamonix 45F-2... but...
  3. Re: Lightening the non-load: Dispose of Metz Mecablitz SCA300 or keep?

    Ic-Racer: Not throwing away... just looking at clearing out the "attic" so to speak.
    All: So yeah... the thing puts out a boat load of light. Big light... big piece of hardware. And yes, prices for...
  4. Lightening the non-load: Dispose of Metz Mecablitz SCA300 or keep?

    In the spirit of "Big Boy... should he stay or go", I'm wondering whether this piece of hardware - acquired for an old MF camera - is worth the bother with LF gear, or I should just stick with the...
  5. Re: Reciprocity and reducing development

    GoodoldNorm: Thank you for asking this question! Precisely what's needed at this point since I've just been shooting the equivalent of late day (flat narrow dynamic range), post sunshine shots with...
  6. Yuletide Gift: When asked... do you list anything photography related?

    Someone asks, 'What'd you like?" Photo books work. Film works. More than that... it's a struggle. Curious how you folks deal with it? I'm told a good pair of boots, a warm pair of socks... maybe new...
  7. Re: Any RRS Tripod Owners with a Series 4?

    I have a RRS 3 but haven't tried the 4. I talked with RRS before ordering and they seemed to push the 3 over the 4. Suggest you call them as well if these are the only 2 tripods you're looking at....

    Re: instant film for 4x5?

    Dann: I'm in for the Instax Wide. At $130 and relatively cheap film... it will do the trick for my needs. Good luck!
  9. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Kiwi: My Fuji 90mm SW is an F/8 and officially clocks in at 410 grams or so plus lensboard, cable release etc. Not the fattest lightbulb in the knife drawer, but not the slightest either. Good for...
  10. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Greg: Yes, I"d love a Ries, too. Very throwback. Solid. Drooled over that.... but long ago sprung for a RRS, leveling base and mount the geared Manfrotto to that. What I like about the geared head is...

    Guys:

    Thank you all. Love the back-and-forth and appreciate the passion. Wow! and do you folks have some! This is great. Thanks especially for all the advice, and willingness to stick your...
  12. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Folks: Okay... sounds like for this camera, the Fuji C 450mm is probably a bust. I've shot the T 450, but only inside. No wind. :)
    Bernice: So are you suggesting even 300mm is too long for a folder...
  13. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Alan:

    Thank you. Advice accepted. By a lot, I mean "yes I had some." I had front rise, and a very little forward tilt (down). It was easier to get the top of the tree so it wasn't cut off. As a...
  14. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

  15. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Thanks guys. This is helpful. So far, I think I'm going to just hit the gym and pack the Fuji 400T only when needed, but keep an eye peeled on some of the lighter bretheren. Some of these aren't...
  16. Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweight

    I've a Fujinon 400T which weighs a megaton. I hear the 450mm is light, small, etc. but also rare and frankly for backpacking looks likely to need an extension board for my Chamonix 45F-2... so the...

  21. Re: Portraits: Fujinon SFS lenses vs. Fujinon 240 A + Soft Focus filter

    Brian: The 180mm "coming" does have both + the Fuji box and instructions. Most re-sale units have only one strainer. but this has both "Red" and "Yellow" dot strainers.
  22. Re: Portraits: Fujinon SFS lenses vs. Fujinon 240 A + Soft Focus filter

    Peter: Thanks!
    Bernice: Yes, I agree it's a bit short. Figure with the Fuji A 240 which ISN'T soft, I kind of felt I had that length covered. So the 180 is more coverage than I'd like, and the 240...

    First step decision: Thanks to the discussions here, I "thought" long and hard about the Rodenstock Imagon and "looked" as much as you can on the internet about some of the other...
  24. Re: Portraits: Fujinon SFS lenses vs. Fujinon 240 A + Soft Focus filter

    Thanks for all these responses. Clearly there's a lot more to the subject than simply slapping an SF lens on the lens board and firing away. Lighting, angle, subject tones, etc.
    Lens fits in that...
  25. Portraits: Fujinon SFS lenses vs. Fujinon 240 A + Soft Focus filter

    I've a Fujinon A 240mm for my 4X5 and have read about the SFS lenses that seem to have behind the lens soft filters (that look more like baffles than filters). These latter remind me of the feather...
  26. Re: B&W digital workflow....what's yours?

    You guys know better than I do. If you will, I've used Nikon Coolscan LS8000 for tons of scans. Switching to Nikon D750 since Negative Supply came out with their equipment (negative holders) in 2019...

    Many, many nice shots here. Enough to inspire me to give Foma another try. Tried 200 and didn't care for it per se, but even the 200 shots here show it was more likely me and not the film. Doh. ...

    Curious about the "keeps" bit.
