    Re: Hi from Spain

    Thanks! Yes, Spain and Australia are a very long way apart — you realise that if you have to fly from one to the other :rolleyes:.

    Australia does indeed have some beautiful places for landscape...

    Re: (possibly) taking the large jump

    I have the Intrepid 5x7 and so far have been happy with it. I haven't got out to use it as much as I'd like, but I've enjoyed using it so far. It's not as precise as other cameras, I guess, and can...

    Re: Hi from Spain

    Hi Antonio,
    I hope the new 5x7 camera works out well. Santander looks like a beautiful city, so hopefully you'll have plenty of interesting things to photograph!

    Hi! I've not tried either myself, but they seem like interesting techniques. Have you seen this tutorial on wet plate photography...

    Re: New To LF and To LFPF

    Thanks! I used to live in south London too, but in a not-so-leafy part: Rotherhithe. I did live in Bromley for a bit too, though.

    The lighter weight of the Intrepid is a big advantage. There are...

    Re: New To LF and To LFPF

    Hi Fenton,

    Hello from Australia! I'm pretty much in the same boat, as I just started large format photography recently, albeit with an Intrepid 5x7. There's quite a learning curve! The Intrepid at...

    Re: Hello from Australia

    Thanks! I wasn't aware of the forum — I will have to check that out. I'm aware of the Large Format news page, which I read from time to time, though I don't think it's exactly a community thing —...

    Re: Hello from Australia

    I can try, though hopefully others will be able to give you better responses than I could. I don't know any other photographers here, so my experience is rather limited.



    I've been getting my...

    It's been a difficult year so far, hasn't it? I was meant to be doing quite a bit of travelling this year, but none of that has happened...

    Interesting comment about the wobbliness of the...

    Re: Hello from Australia

    Hi Marc! How have you found using the 10x8? I nearly bought one of those, but ended up buying the 5x7 instead — mainly due to lens availability. I avoided the 4x5 as I want to be able to make decent...

    Re: Going Wide on 5x7

    I'm using a Fujinon NSW 105mm f/8 lens discussed here https://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/showthread.php?10693-Fuji-SW-105-F8, which does seem to have excellent coverage on 5x7. I've only...

    Re: Hello from Australia

    Many thanks for the suggestions! I tend to avoid the national parks, since I know you're not really allowed to go walking by yourself and I can rarely get someone to go with me. They're great when I...

    Re: Hello from Australia

    Thanks! I am in Queensland, near the Gold Coast. Not a great location for photography in general, though thankfully we've escaped the worst of the pandemic (so far).

    Yes, have been studying...

    Hello from Australia

    Hi all. I just thought I'd write a quick post to introduce myself.

    I've lurked on the forum for a little while, but only recently bought my first large format camera, an Intrepid 5x7. I've been...
