  1. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    I've thought about that aspect of his work for a while, but anyone using sheet film as their medium will (by the very nature of using sheet film) be using one sheet/image at a time. We only have...
  2. Re: Thoughts About Linhof 4x5 Technikardan 45s ?

    I must have a variant then, because my red levers lock/unlock shift, focus and swing.

    Green levers lock/unlock rise and tilt.

    Anyway OP, you can't go wrong with a TK45 :cool:

  3. Re: Thoughts About Linhof 4x5 Technikardan 45s ?

    Arne's point was to be careful with the camera folded since the bellows corners are exposed to damage from placing and removing from the backpack.

    Removing the bellows removes this risk.

    BTW, i...
  4. Re: Thoughts About Linhof 4x5 Technikardan 45s ?

    One option to avoid bellows damage is to actually remove the bellows before packing it away.

    It's only 4 small locking levers, 2 each on the top of the front and rear standards.

  5. Re: Thoughts About Linhof 4x5 Technikardan 45s ?

    I use a Technikardan 45 (not the S) and the biggest difference is the lack of centre indents on the 45.

    As has been mentioned, it's a VERY versatile camera. It's not the lightest, but not the...

    Re: Jobo CPP2 Motor Malfunction

    Jim,

    If you keep blowing fuses when you turn the motor on, then the motor may be seized (or there may be a short in the power supply to the motor).

    Jim, You should be able to test the transformer with a multimeter.....very carefully as the input (115VAC), the primary (20VAC-1.6A) and secondary (10VAC-0.4A) outputs are marked.

  17. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    "True" is a more substantial book than many of the others and the quality or printing is as good as "Between Dark and Dark" and "Dreaming the Gokstadt".

    Mike
  18. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    I'd have to agree with Andrew, the quality of printing in Refuge is not the same as his other books.

    It may be down to the quality of the paper.

    Mike
  19. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    You won't be disappointed with Refuge Jim. I have 6 of TJC's books and the quality of printing is excellent.

    Re: Sinar Pan/Tilt Head question

    I suggest putting your camera on the head and go through a series of movements to see if the crack opens?

    If it does, then it's not decorative.

    The reels should be secure to the central spindle.

    The tabs at the bottom of the central spindle engage in the bottom of the tank so that during rotation of the tank, the reel will move around...
