  1. Re: A sad, sad day for LFers in my country...

    Thanks Sevo. So you reckon other than gluing the magnet, there's nothing else that needs replacing?

    I would suggest looking to see if Multiblitz is available in your country and more importantly, if there's good after-sales and parts support for it.

    Barring that, any reputable brand flash with...

    Well, one of us spoke to the lab, and they told us the machine is built into the building (whatever that means). Also, it's supposed to be a dinosaur with no parts and service, which is why, I...

    That's some great suggestions guys! THANKS!

    Not many folks DIY their own E6 here, so it's sort of a new(ish) area to many of us. Commercial lab work has always been fairly affordable (USD2.50/...

    No, it's not that LF cameras will be made illegal or anything as bad as that, but very soon, we will have absolutely no E-6 processing services for LF materials here. It seems that the one and only...

    Re: 65mm F4.5 Sinaron W MC

    Neil,

    I don't have or use a Roddie 65, but a Nikkor 65 f/4 which is probably similar with a similar image circle.

    While I'm no expert on lenses, I can share that focusing with one can be a...

    Hi Healyzh,

    Re: Schneider Symmar-S 300mm price

    I decided to hold off on the 300, even though it went for a nice price of US$204.

    I might get a conventional 250mm, or a Fujinon soft focus lens instead.

    Thanks guys.

    Re: Confirmation on Polaroid backs

    Thanks so much Peter.

    I'll look out for the 550s and 405s, but preferably the 550s since they seem to offer a larger image.
