  1. Re: Nagaoka cameras are still made in Japan. The story of a wooden LF craftsman.

    I'm in Saitama City, near Urawa Station. I currently have a 4x5, but for now no lens, film holders, or place to develop, so I'm temporarily out of the large format game, but always want to meet other...
  2. Re: Nagaoka cameras are still made in Japan. The story of a wooden LF craftsman.

    I had no idea! I would love to go, especially if I could get permission to photograph him in his workshop, but my Japanese is still too rough for that. I live nearby. This is going to dominate my...

  9. Re: Advice on a spare-time project? 4x4 back and holders

    Re: Current options for 95mm filters

    Update: I got the lens back from the shop two days ago, and I'll have to re-measure when I'm not as tired, but pretty sure the OD is 102mm, so that Lee holder probably won't work for me. I had one...

    Re: Goodbye Acros Sheet Film

    I suspect ACROS 120 is still safe for now, but given it's my main thing, I'm tempted to buy a small freezer (because tiny apartment) and stuff it full of as many pro-packs as possible just in case.

    It was a very damp weekend, but never seeing the tops of the mountains actually added a lot of atmosphere. Still, I'm hoping for better weather when I go back in a few weeks.
  19. Re: A really new tripod system . . .it rolls up!

    It's a cool idea. Not really practical, but cool. I'd like to see how this idea will have developed in 5 or 10 years. Great ideas often have funky, fairly impractical beginnings.

  22. Re: If you had no batteries, would you stay home?

    My legs need only a handful of calories to carry me, my Hasselblad wouldn't know what to do with a battery. If all batteries ceased to exist/work, I'd be even more likely to get out and about.

    Re: Best tripod head for 4x5 camera?

    If you go to the hardware store, it should be a pretty easy bit to find. Either 1/4-20 or 3/8-16, both easily found in the USA. Find something of an appropriate length and you're good to go for a...

    For what it's worth, this is something I could do in a month or so after I've finished the move I'm in the middle of. I've got both on hand and could borrow a 4x5 for it.
