  2. Re: Schneider Kreuznach Super Angulon MC XL 5,6/58

    If I was in your place, I’d get the72mm SAXL.

    Much bigger IC and far easier to use.

    (And less physics for you to argue with…)
  3. Re: Schneider Kreuznach Super Angulon MC XL 5,6/58

    Super wides = super vignetting.

    The unavoidable laws of physics…. This lens has light “falloff”; yes, the image circle is being pushed with 4x5”, but we’re not discussing mechanical vignetting...

    If you didn’t notice the difference between the operational end and the static end of the camera back, I’d argue that it’s an organic flaw, rather than a design flaw…

  6. Re: Does changing aperture move the focus point

    Shine a laser pointer onto a wall in the dark. Bung a Bahtinov mask on the lens, stop down and use the defraction spikes to focus. Done.

    Also will depend on format. The smaller the format, sans movements, the less the impact.

    Re: Photographing stars, 4x5

    20 minute subs with reticule alignment. Sorry; I don’t believe that is possible.

    A 5 minute sub with tracking is tough enough with digital wide field, let alone 20 minutes unguided.

    Re: Stitching Panos in the Darkroom

    Scan, stitch, print digital negative, print in darkroom.

    Or just use a digital camera and get it tight first time.

    A 36+ meg digital will outperform 6x9cm anyway, so why bother?
  19. Re: Shooting 4x5 panoramic images...looking for forum wisdom

    Apart from a quasi-academic pursuit, I still don’t get the point of doing this.

    I mainly shoot panoramic.

    Re: Which brand of 4x5 filmholder is best?

    Actually, no need for you to be critical.

    If you read the thread, it is about excluding bad options to leave those that are good.

    Thus, “read between the lines”.

    “ The whole set up is pretty solid...”

    Not if you mount lenses directly onto the Sinar shutter. They’re not designed to be weight bearing.

  32. Re: Are there alternatives for Schneider Super Angulon XL 210mm to cover 11x14"?

    Filters are a pain for the big 210mm’s.

    Would love a deep yellow or orange filter....

  36. Re: Lee Filters - anyone using these or Cokin et al squares?

    Both Lee and Cokin produce horrible colour casts for positives. Very difficult to correct.
