  1. Re: Head and Shoulder Portrait Lens for 11x14 Camera

    And for that matter; Convertible Symmar's, Protar VII's, Convertible Wollensak lenses, and a host of others too. But, you'll need to work out of doors in good light. Focus with lenses darker than...
  2. Re: Head and Shoulder Portrait Lens for 11x14 Camera

    Thanks Hugo, it was a 22" Voigtlaender Petzval. Still one of my favorites.

  3. Re: Head and Shoulder Portrait Lens for 11x14 Camera

    There's a 14X17 Versar on Ebay just now. I have no connection with the seller. That would be an 18" f6 Rapid Rectilinear. I would consider it a good choice. A Voigtlaender Euryscop Series IV #6...

    Re: First year Heliar's

    Fun to look back after 8 years. I eventually settled on the Cooke Knucklers as the "keepers" in this school of look. I still have a 42CM and a 36CM later version Heliar's from the 1920's in the...

  6. Re: Copal 0 lens repair question - index ring turns?

    There should be a shaft that sticks up and engages a boss on the verso of the black area that holds it.

    Re: Question about Kodak 5x7 holder

    Neither rare or particularly valuable. What they're good for is making pictures. What I like about having older holders is I use them with non-standard film. So I know my newer plastic ones are...
  8. Re: Box of paper dated 1952, what to do with it?

    First thing to do is try to make a normal print. If it's a chloride paper like AZO it may be just fine. I got a box of Gaevert paper from 1964 that I was gonna toss and when I made a print, it was...
  9. Re: How different are Tessars from different companies?

    And here I thought that a reverse Tessar was a Petzval ;~'))
  10. Re: How different are Tessars from different companies?

    Tessar's are pretty interchangeable. Company to company, the characteristics are the same. The differences from an f3.5 to an f4.5 and from f4.5 to f6.3 are greater than any inter-company...

    Re: Removing film from Jobo Expert Drum 3005

    Each cell space has a small gap that goes all the way down to the bottom. I use an ice pick and that slot to get the pick behind the sheet, maybe an 8th inch and then I carefully travel around until...
  12. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    For me, it's all the fuss about a 5X7 Agfa that wouldn't fetch $85 on Ebay. Told to the unknowing to make them swoon at such a thing. Grandson of the original owner. How marvelous.

    Re: Eastman Kodak view no.1

    Peter, the bottom line is the ground surface of the glass must be in perfect register with where the film will be when the holders are put in and film is exposed. No idea how yours got...
  14. Re: Where are the great shots? Am I a cynicist or a realist?

    This thread may have been better off left dead. My original point was that it's 2019, no one cares about these pictures. That's perfectly OK. I'm still enjoying my cameras and especially my...

    Re: Can Someone ID this 8x10 Camera?

    I remember someone advertising one of those very recently. It didn't have a bellows. You should be able to find it with a search with the name you've uncovered.

    Re: Speed graphic with Zeiss lens

    That's a great lens. Your camera is probably the smaller 3 1/4X4 1/4 inch film size. Measure the glass area at the back. The cameras were sold without lens and the customer matched a lens that met...
  17. Re: Before You Spend a Gazillion Dollars on a SOFT Focus Lens, Check Your Cupboards .

    Here are the ones from the modified Symmar 210. Same thing but front group this time. I think these are pretty legit. No, I'm not selling my Pinkhams, I'm also afflicted with the collector gene. ...
  18. Before You Spend a Gazillion Dollars on a SOFT Focus Lens, Check Your Cupboards . . .

    . . . it may already be there. I was in the boring wash phase of a load of film and picked up the rear group of an older Sironar 210mm lens. Not too old, it came in a black Copal shutter that I...

    13 TPI seems awfully coarse for a 2" dia lens thread area. They surely must have tightened that up for the smaller lenses? Measure number of threads and the area measured and do a calc to get a...
