    Re: New and need help

    True. At near 70 years young, I still backpack my Arca-Swiss F-Line and a complement of lenses over pretty fair distances. Add my BetterLight scanning system and the weight gets more "fun." Not...

    Re: New and need help

    Monorails are great, but they can be problematic to carry into the field. Since you're interested in doing landscapes, movement capability isn't as important as some other subjects. Have you thought...
  4. Re: Anyone tried Epson P906 (P900) printer for digital negatives?

    I can't imagine any reason why the P900 (or P906) couldn't be used to craft digital negatives. If you want to go the software route, I believe Richard Boutwell's QCDN app supports the P900 (see...

    Re: 20th Century Spiral reel for 8x10

    The 20th Century 8x10 reel didn't work out for me so I returned it; gouges in the emulsion and uneven development. For the record, I was doing inversion agitation. I tried the "twirly stick", but...
  6. Re: Will a Fujinon 150mm f/5.6 fold into a Crown Graphic?

    The Fuji 150W will easily fit into a Crown Graphic when closed. That was my main lens for this camera back when I owned one.

    Probably the biggest difference between the W series and the later NW...

    Personally, I'd keep 'em both as you never know what application might arise someday whereby you'd want a 150. Prices for used analog photo equipment continue to rise as the years pass so, if you...

    Re: Kodak D-76 8x10 in Expert drum

    FWIW, an 8x10 Expert Drum can hold up to 1.5L solution. If running this on one of the Jobo manual processors, you just need to make sure you have a more recent unit with the stronger motor.

    Re: margins for alt process prints?

    Like Jim, I, too, always leave ample margin around the actual image for the reasons he states. Since I print pt/pd, I, also, like having the extra room for brush marks.

    Re: JOBO ATL 3 or a CPP

    First, agree with everything Joshua said. I guess part of the decision will come down the max size film you plan to process. The ATL 1000 can handle everything up to 4x5 which, for me, wouldn't work...
  15. 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...

    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...

  28. 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...

  32. 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.

    Re: Monorail vs. Folding Camera Weight
