    Good start. Have fun!
  2. Re: 4x5 without a backpack for the beginner, non-trekker, etc.

    I think the one chart I would keep as essential is the little D-value chart. Yes, I should memorize it, and will when I begin shooting more regularly again. For most lens-extension values, I have...

    Re: Still life - background choice

    Without a fuller description of your intention, it's hard to offer advice, as for any kind of artistic work. In this case, to suggest a few options, there is still life imitating a classical dutch...
  5. 4x5 without a backpack for the beginner, non-trekker, etc.

    For those who trek a good deal, a good backpack is probably essential, not just the obvious choice. For beginners without, or anyone who can't find one at a yard sale or thrift store (or the online...

    I have no real preference, though the slightly textured slides of the Fidelity Elites I have slip a bit more easily in and out than the Riteways and Liscos. However, an occasionally bit of...

    jmddavis, I would add interlibrary loan, especially for those without a handy university. I have read/viewed about a dozen books this year that I could not have comfortably afford to buy.

    Re: Drying Clips

    For 4x5, which is as large as I go, wooden clothes pins are just fine. I have never had a problem with marking the image area -- clipping in that far at a corner is not necessary, especially if you...
  17. Re: Foma Classic paper and higher contrasts: anyone else having issues?

    Doremus, yes to all. While it was a matter of concern -- and perhaps others' results vary, in our chock-full-of-variables medium (why lead a boring life?) -- I am content to have the paper as an...

    Re: Durst Taucoli Cold Light.

  25. Re: Repair, Maintenance and replacement of COPAL shutters?

    Shutter CLA can be $100 or so; it can also be more. A technician may charge a fee for inspection and estimate, which then goes toward the repair if you accept. That would be my next move, because he...

    Fortunately, Vaughn, I am a moderate person (at least, physically), and I like my equipment and do my best to treat it well so that it will reciprocate in its own way.

    That would be quite a bit...
  28. Re: One more time: Tachihara 4x5 front cam loosens up. Solution?

    Okay, Maris, you put me to the task again, and again I discovered something -- enjoying which is always better than feeling embarrassed. While there is no Fiel Stand, or label at all under the strap...
  29. Re: One more time: Tachihara 4x5 front cam loosens up. Solution?

    Sean, that makes sense to me, but clearly was not the design in these cameras, as countless photos of them, and users, attest. My only guess is that unlocking might have been considered a bit too...
  30. Re: One more time: Tachihara 4x5 front cam loosens up. Solution?

    Maris, I just tried your suggestion for the front cam. The closer I get towards a more vertical closed position, the less stable it is. I tried different combinations of washers to achieve this --...
  31. Re: One more time: Tachihara 4x5 front cam loosens up. Solution?

    Maris, thank you. Since the manual, such as it is, really gives no clue about this (or much else), I certainly defer to your expertise. I have, along my journey with this camera, tried adding more...
  32. Re: One more time: Tachihara 4x5 front cam loosens up. Solution?

    Well, that was interesting. I discovered that the front front standard is removable when the cams are removed. I discovered that a couple of screws holding the guides for the standard to move back...
  33. Re: One more time: Tachihara 4x5 front cam loosens up. Solution?

    Thanks. Makes sense. I might have to get someone do that for me. But your mention made me think about having to figure out how to get the entending bed out to do it, and that reminded me that the...
