    Re: Gundlach Radar Anastigmat 8x10 users

    The Gundlach Radar 12"/f4.5 in Betax is one of my most used lenses on 8x10, I really like what it produces, I shoot it wide open and stopped down. It does get just a little bit darker towards the...

    Re: Favourite lenses for 8x10" vs. 4x10"

    I like 240 and 450 for 8x10 and masked 4x10. I used light weight lenses, 240 g-claron and 450 fujinon-c

    Really just depends on what you like though.

    18mpg is probably an over estimate on my jeep, even just highway miles :D I'm figuring on about 16mpg on the freeway doing 70. That's cool though, I've been expecting not to work for these 2...

  16. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

    Well for one thing, I don't think I hold the same standards for my images that some big photographers might. I'm perfectly happy with the quality images I get from my 4x5. :) Which is why my 8x10...
  17. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

    indeed, there are some lenses that I have for my 8x10 which give a look that I do not have the ability to reproduce in 4x5. at least not with the lenses that I own.
  18. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

    you can see a difference at a small print like 8x10? I cannot, from what I've seen of my own prints, comparing 8x10 and 4x5, when printing at 8x10 from digital scans. Drum scans maybe the grain is...
  19. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

    indeed :) And any larger than 11x14, and it's difficult to keep a bunch of prints around, I like 8x10 prints, nice and easy to handle and deal with, but big enough to see the photo decently :)
  20. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

    my usual print size is 8x10 and 11x14. I've occasionally done some a bit larger, but not very often. I dont doubt larger prints 8x10 negatives would be much better! :)

    I've used a 4x5 Wista/Zone VI, and an 8x10 Tachihara. Granted they were not the same size, but between the two I think I liked the Wista just a little bit better, it just seemed to have a better...
  22. Re: dumping 8x10 and sticking with 4x5. anyone regret?

  25. Re: How to tell if film holders are light-tight?

    indeed, this is probably the best and most sure way. Some leaks may only be visible in bright light. sacrifice some paper or film, and make notes of what holder goes with each sheet.
