    Re: Tired of my ground glass

    Bill works best via telephone. I'd give him a call. Set aside enough time, as the call is likely to last awhile.

    Re: Rebuilding a Deardorff 11x14 Studio Stand

    I wish I could go get it....but it's just too far at the moment. If anyone from the Midwest is going to NC and is willing to get it a bit closer, I'd be very grateful. Currently, it's 802 miles...

    That sounds like a great option, Ari! Please send me some pictures when you get them.

    Re: Portrait Lens 8x10, soft focus

    I can see an 18" Verito from where I'm sitting, and I used a 2D for years. Do not use one on a 2D without providing auxiliary support. The front standard of a 2D is not up to the task. That said,...

  22. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    I like Raptars, too. I have a 240. The problem, and the problem with Ilex lenses, are the shutters. I'm just not a fan. I prefer how modern Copal, Compur and Prontor shutters work. For instance,...
  23. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    I have a 300 Fuji L. I like it, but it's not like I've done a bunch of comparisons.

    Looking at your comments, I'd also check out an Ilex Paragon. I haven't had a 300, but I've had a couple...

    Re: Poor Man's 35 mm DSLR scanner

    These are subtractive filters. Using them lessens the amount of light. Usually, when scanning, you want as much light as you can get. So, unless one has a really good reason, it's better to use...

    Re: Technique for focusing "into your scene"

    When I look back on my large format technique, I often use front rise and a very small amount of tilt, and that's about it. Sure, there are exceptions.

    Yes, my camera has the same issues. I'm sure it could be fixed. I have everything but the tilting lens boards, and that wouldn't be hard to make.

    I have one. Mine needs a refurbishment. Note that the tilting lens board, which I don't have, is the only direct way to get front tilt. The camera is more deluxe than, say, a 2D. Yes, it's...
