    Re: Tripod Head Needed for 8X10

    Since you have a Manfrotto tripod how about a Manfrotto/Bogen 3047 head. Supports 16.5 lbs. Lots of them out in the used market. Their 3057 head is larger and supports 22 lbs but might be harder...
  2. Re: MWLFA LF Print Show January 25, Chesterton, Indiana

    Re: Aristo 1212 Cold Light Head Images?

    I believe the picture shows the tube heater pad and temperature control. Wired to the heater plug. Should not have to change any of this for a new lamp.

    Re: Tachihara 4x5

    As for price I would check Ebay for sold prices to get an idea. Large format prices may be increasing but I'd think these would sell for more like $500-600 for just the camera.

    Re: 4x5 with 4x10 camera?

    You probably will want to be taking a lot more verticals with 4x5 than 4x10. That's going to be harder with a 4x10 camera that will need to be tilted with the tripod head for verticals. Also if you...
