  1. Re: Stiff Linhof 003668-90 leveling head fixed !

    Good, thank you for the report. Gunsmith-style screw drivers are nice, especially for those large head narrow-slotted screws with which European view camera makers seem to be particularly enamored.

  2. Re: How to secure Sinar Norma Case for shipping

    Yes that's the picture, no tie showing but I'm sure he's wearing one. Never thought about the case empty; that I might have managed to wrestle on to my back :)

  3. Re: How to secure Sinar Norma Case for shipping

    I got a pair of those straps about 50 years ago. Put them on my Norma case and for the life of me couldn't get the thing up on my back. I think you'd need to have the case on some sort of a lift and...
  4. Re: To all Linhof Kardan GT 8x10 owners

    Regarding whether or not the weight is bearable in the field, perhaps owners of the Calumet C-1 could contribute an opinion. The magnesium version weighs about 6.4 kg, the aluminum one about 8.2 kg....
  5. Re: Will Ries J-200 (or J-250) head couple with Gitzo GT3541LS tripod?

    Thank you Jeff for this excellent description of what I had in mind.

  7. Re: Linhof Kardan leveling tripod head 003668/90 questions

    I just re-checked, mine does have a very thin film of lube. I expect this is best attended to by an authorized service center.

    I'll try scanning my sheet and posting it. This will take a while.

  8. Re: Linhof Kardan leveling tripod head 003668/90 questions

    I bought one of these new two years ago for use with my Technikardan 45S (using the 003853 Quick Change Plate). It does have a light film of grease on the side-to-side leveling surfaces. Without a...
  9. Re: Will Ries J-200 (or J-250) head couple with Gitzo GT3541LS tripod?

    First of all I have no experience with this Gitzo tripod. On some tripods the stud that the head attaches to is fixed and the head is screwed on tight. Panning requires that the head has a base that...

    Is it to La Jolla that he's moving? That's the location shown on Linhof's website: https://linhof.com/en/linhof-vertretungen/

    Laflex website still shows Palm Desert.

  13. Re: The largest and/or heaviest 4x5" camera ever?

    I'm thinking it was Melles Griot that made the ULF lenses for Doug Busch but my memory is not to be trusted. Maybe they made the shutters? Maybe both Rodenstock and Melles Griot made the lenses?

    Re: Curtis Color Scout

    Yes, very very impressive work, including the test shot.
    What are you using as the lens? I suppose back in the day it would have been an Apochromat Artar.
