  1. Re: Where to get 4x5 sheet film in the UK for a reasonable price

    Basically Ilford has to price heir film very aggressively in the US to compete with the patriotic US kodak market. Fuji price their slide film extortionately because they seem desperate to kill...

    Re: Imacon Precision III 4x10 Film Scanning

    Not guilty on the tilt charge your honour, that camera doesn't even have any tilt! Just a slight breeze and a few seconds of exposure.

    Re: Chamonix Hs-1 Review

    There's not really any appreciable sag when the standards extend. Certainly not at 180mm. Compared to a normal chamonix N or F model there is more general flex in the rear standard if you push or...

  9. Re: Wide aperture performance of 110mm to 120mm lenses

    The main theoretical problem with rear filters on a wideangle lens is the focus shift is not constant over the image circle, as light passing from the lens to the edges of the image circle do so at a...

  12. Re: How Is This Achieved - Apparently Elevated Perspective

    I would say just use of front rise too.

    However, using a camera on a tall tripod or platform and the photographer standing on a stepladder would not be unheard of either.

    I reckon it is worth a try with a test sheet or roll of film. My colour E6s kits have always kept pretty well, well beyond the stated expected life. The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

    Re: Banding in Skies on Imacon scanner

    Belt issues you'd expect to cause lines running parallel to the short side of a 5x7", whereas dust on lamp or sensor or elsewhere in the optical path you'd expect lines parallel to the long edge.

  22. Re: Anyone Bought a Chamonix 4x5 in the UK ?

    I've had three shipments of a camera from chamonix (two purchased, and one replacement due to damage) and only one of them was stung by customs. If you do get stung it'll cost you an extra 20% ish.

    Re: Which Chamonix 4x5 model should I buy?

    What problems? I'd be interested to know why you think a non-folder is not easy to carry or use in the field. I've used both types, non-folders are easier to use, and overall no different to carry.

    Re: Center ND filter for a 65mm Nikkor?

    To be fair, there are certain scenes where you can get away without a CF with chrome film, but really it's best to have the option either way.

    You undo the knobs and the top part of the rail can slide or be replaced/removed, or a split rail used (i.e. to get extra extension).

    Re: Center ND filter for a 65mm Nikkor?

    I use the Rodenstock 1.5 stop 67/86 one on my Nikkor 65/4, which as I understand is about equivalent to a Schneider IIIb. Works great.
  28. Re: How difficult is it to drill holes in a Carbon Fiber lens board?

    How about just attaching your adapter to any old cheap second-hand (or Chinese eBay) metal Linhof-type board? Easy to drill, easy to find, and not expensive if you cock it up.
