  1. Re: Schneider 90mm f8 in Sinar DB in copal shutter?

    They are Copal shutters, but the aperture is silk screened onto the body. Every Copal shutter I have with a Nikkor or Fujinon lens has the scale silk screened on the body.

    Edit: I don’t have any...
  2. Re: Schneider 90mm f8 in Sinar DB in copal shutter?

    Yes, but unless the aperture scale on the donor shutter is the same focal length, you’ll need a new scale. If the donor shutter is from some of the Japanese brands—Nikkor, Fuji—it’s a little more...

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Well, by and large, you want to buy lenses already in shutter. That’s a little less necessary with newer lenses because of the Copal 0/1/3 standardization, but older lenses don’t buy shutter less...

    Re: Schneider Tele-Xenar 270mm f5.5

    Normal xenar lenses are essentially tessar designs (4 elements, 3 groups) but a tele-xenar is a telephoto lens. So it will have some extra elements to shorten the flange focal distance. I’d be...
  6. Re: building a copy/digitizing stand out of Sinar parts

    I get the idea of anchoring both ends—absolutely it will provide better results, but the less elevation of the camera from the anchor point at the base equals less leverage of the camera to vibrate...

  8. Re: building a copy/digitizing stand out of Sinar parts

  9. Re: What is your digital camera “scanning” setup?

    I have the shell of an Omega D3 in my garage (I bought it with a D2, and scavenged the best parts from both to build my enlarger.) I consdered using that as the basis for my scanning rig, but I'm...
  10. Re: building a copy/digitizing stand out of Sinar parts

    yeah, I've had great luck with 35mm because there is an easy turnkey solution--a macro bellows with slide copy attachment. This is a little more challenging. I get from Daniel's photos above that...
  11. Re: building a copy/digitizing stand out of Sinar parts

    When you say copy stand rail, do you mean the 36" base rail? I've never actually seen one, plus from what I can tell, they are base rails, and the table clamp looks like it only accepts extensions:...
  12. building a copy/digitizing stand out of Sinar parts

    Is that crazy? I was looking at copy stands, and the one thing I really can't tell online is how rigid a ~$500 stand is. I like to think it would be ok, but rigidity is one of the most critical...

  14. Re: Traveling by Air In July: How should I handle LF Film?

  21. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    tha main reason to shoot LF is so the people with you get frustrated at the time it takes and leave you behind, so you can spend as much time on your shots as you want without feeling rushed.

    Re: Which diameter filter

    There is the early P67 55/3.5 which takes a very rare 100mm front filter (not sure it that one has a clip for rear filters.). The later 55’s are much more reasonable.
