  2. Re: 8x10 Tripod that Won't Break the Bank, But May Break my Back

    At only two figures, there is the Paillard Bolex Tripod. You'll need to change the head, but these are very good tripods. At three figures, I like the Miller wooden tripods. Many different...

    I was wondering this too, but I'm not fond of the general posting services. Also, some posted images appear on my screen as larger than my screen in one dimension. That's not good either. For now,...

    Re: contact prints

    Clear float glass, like window or picture framing glass, works fine. If you don't have a frame, use some heavy glass so that you maintain good, close contact between neg and paper.

    Not all grey cards are the same grey (zone). And they have various reflection properties, too.

    Re: 4x5 enlarger

    Focal length depends on your enlargement size. I make small enlargements, so I typically use the longer lengths. Really like the 180mm for 8x10s from 4x5. 150mm is fine too.
