  2. Re: Photos with Super-Angulon XL 58 vs. 72 mm Lenses?

    I do not have any pictures handly, but I have used all of these. If you are using the movements on the 90XL, then 72XL is the logical much wider step. The 58 is more like the 47 - you are pretty...

    As a sometime Technika user, I advise against hanging heavy pointy metal cameras from your neck. The likely long term effect is going to be a messed up vertebrae or muscle and chronic pain. You can...

    Re: Making lemonade

    Might be interesting to try a Foveon sensor camera, if you could borrow or rent one. Still additive RGB, but with actual layers for each color like slide film. It could have a more realistic gamut.

    I think the key question in today's world is whether your interest is in the images or in the process. You can pretty much get to any image with digital that you can do with LF, and some that you...

    Re: New From Louisiana

    Large format does not require that you also do wet printing. You can load holders with a changing tent process film with a daylight tank, and then scan it.

    Re: HABS HAER HALS double weight and digital prints OK

    I could not get a good read from my reviewer in the southern office, so I submitted on archival paper and then reprinted with the number. That way I was sure that they would be happy with the paper.

  32. Re: What will my Sinar F2 4x5 do that a Chamonix 4x5 or Ebony 4x5 won't

    While it can cost as much as an f2, a Sinar pan-tilt head makes the Sinar really fast to use.
  33. Re: What will my Sinar F2 4x5 do that a Chamonix 4x5 or Ebony 4x5 won't

    I retired my F2 for an Ebony to have an easier camera to carry. But the F2 did everything I need, and handles very wide lenses much better than my Ebony that is designed for them.
