  1. Re: Looking for advice on a used lens for an Intrepid camera

    My money would be on the 210mm Symmar-S in a reliable, working Copal shutter. The Ektar's are fine lenses, but I'd bet that anything you'd buy will require a CLA on the shutter. No experience with...

  3. Re: New Computer - Photoshop CS6 - install Silver Efex Pro2?

    I can only speak to the latest versions of PS and SilverEfex on Windows 10, but click on Help>About... and you'll see the version number. On Mac, I assume the same is under the SilverEfex menu.
  4. Re: New Computer - Photoshop CS6 - install Silver Efex Pro2?

    iOS or Android? IMO, the most popular ones are probably Lightroom, Darkroom, Pixelmator Pro, and Snapseed. Other than LR, I don't know if all these are available for both platforms. If Android, a...

    Re: Tripod for Wista metal field camera

    Tripod choice, IMO, boils down to weight, stability, and cost. Carbon fiber cost more than aluminum, heavier tripods are more stable than lighter ones, etc. How much do you want to carry? What's your...

  7. Re: Looking for my first 8x10 field camera, what are my best options in 2021?

    The MK2 is much improved over the prior model. The front standard has no detent to help you center the lens to the film and no "zero catch" for the tilt. I just eyeball it. I drew lines across the...

    Re: shutter choice for a newbie

    I own lenses with Copal, Seiko, and Ilex shutters. Most of the Copal shuttered lenses I've had for 40+ years and never had one serviced. The Ilex shutter is the only one I've ever had serviced and I...
  9. Re: Looking for my first 8x10 field camera, what are my best options in 2021?

    Here's another vote for the Intrepid. I own the Kickstarter Mk1 version and the latest Mk2 and, though they're not particularly precise cameras, they're great for backpacking over longer distances....

  13. Re: Is this emulsion 'damage' due to a light leak or chemicals ?

    Looks like a development issue to me. The negative probably moved above the level of developer solution during the shake routine or during the rolling agitation; I've had both happen with BTZS tubes....
  14. Re: The things I don't know... :) Help (Crazy lens movements; lens choices; bellows o

    You won't be able to move an 8x10 around much, but you could generate directional blur via slow shutter speed and panning the tripod head. Personally, I'd recommend a 3-way head for this as it would...

  18. Re: 210 for travel and landscape: Heliar or Schneider?

    You might look at a 210mm Schneider G-Claron or a 210mm Calumet (or Rodenstock equivalent) Caltar-II E. If you're not set on a 210 focal length, look at the 200mm Nikkor-M; a truly diminutive lens.

    Your anticipated pricing per scan is certainly reasonable compared to any drum scanning service, but I'd have to see some results before I committed to the process.
  22. Re: COMPARISON: Fujinon W 250mm f6.7 & Fujinon A 240 f9

    I own both of those lenses and use them regularly on both 4x5 and 8x10. In terms of overall performance, sharpness, etc, IMO it would be tough to see any difference between these two optics in any...
  23. Re: Fujichrome Velvia 50, 4x5 sheet film

    Re: Monorail vs. Folding Camera Weight

    Monorails are not necessarily heavier than folding 4x5's. For example, my Arca-Swiss F line weighs in at about the same weight as a Zone VI 4x5; it's actually lighter than a Wisner Technical 4x5....
  25. Re: landscape infintity focus: what aperture do you prefer or use?

    If DOF isn't a consideration, I use all my lenses at what I feel is their optimum aperture; typically, a couple of stops down from wide open. For 4x5, I will generally use F/16 or F/22 when deep DOF...

  37. Re: Is the rail on a Arca Swiss camera, the same as RRS parts? Are they interchangea

    As already mentioned, the major issue is the gearing along the top of the rail whereby the standards move for focusing. I'm sure the rails can vary a bit, as Neil pointed out, but I have an Oswald...
