    Re: Unique Ultra Wide Lens

    The Rodenstock Heligon 130mm covers 8x10 nicely. Rectilinear image with little distortion (or movements) Uncoated, no helicopter blades to get deal with.

    Re: Linhof Serial Numbers

    Hi Bob,
    Lovely Master Technika, B571059. But I'm keeping her regardless, whatever you come up with for her age. She's a very graceful lady.
    Thanks,

    Re: Roll paper in an Epson 3800???

    I used the manual rear feed for cut sheets from rolls, but it was frequently difficult to get the printer to take the sheets because of the excessive curl. Flattening first would certainly help.
