  1. Re: Traveling by Air In July: How should I handle LF Film?

    One minute you write "having the film in a plane in sky is more radiation than the X-ray machines in case you were wondering .."

    Then you write, "at least if it is shipped, it ONLY gets radiation...
  2. Re: Traveling by Air In July: How should I handle LF Film?

    More Internet "confusion". It depends on what the radiation level is set on the TSA machine. They can set it LOW or HIGH. And it depends on the ISO of the film.

    If you mail film it gets...

    Re: 4x4 filter on 360mm Symmar-S?

    I would think that it depends on what film format you are using and how much movement you expect.

    Can you be more specific?

    For what's it's worth, you were on the right track.

    A Triple may not be a Home Run, but it's a lot better than a Single!
  5. Re: Traveling by Air In July: How should I handle LF Film?

    I always put my film in X-RAY proof film bags -- lead lined and pretty cheap -- just in case.

    I always ASK for a hand inspection.

    Chances are the TSA agent will not know "what you got", but if...
  6. Re: Test exposure steps in half stop increments.

    From my rough calculations, step #4 & #5 are too much.
  7. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    I like grain -- and I don't just mean in my sandwich bread. However, when I want a grainy photo I usually reach for Kodak 2475 in my Minolta MG-s 16mm sub-mini.
  8. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    I'll have to try some rear tilting (and swinging) the next time I use my 37mm Mamiya Fisheye. Never tried it with the fisheye -- which always has bent trees!

    That's a very interesting opinion, and one that I generally share -- but generally don't share it with others.

    Interesting. For me, it's the opposite -- where I set up the camera determines what focal length lens I will use.

    Re: Seeking advice on 120mm lenses

    Thanks for this information. I assume that Fuji made a GX macro, which would probably be GREAT on a 4x5!

    ADDENDUM: I see that Fuji never made a lens for the GX specifically for macro work. Too...

    Re: Seeking advice on 120mm lenses

    I'm not familiar with the Fuji 6x8 lenses, but they need an IC of 110mm to cover 6x8. Increasing the IC to 135mm or 140mm would seem sufficient for the camera's movements -- not 160mm/4x5".

    The GX lenses don't have an IC that covers 4x5" -- except if used for macro shots, and even there, better options are available.

    Since OP Alan9940 states "I currently own a Fuji W 125/5.6" (80°), but wants something sharper, I've got to assume that he is using 4x5". If that's the case, anything with a 100° coverage is way too...

    Re: Which diameter filter

    We certainly have come a long way from Mario's original question:

    What do you suggest as a diameter for filter? 86 or 82mm?

    Thanks
