  1. Re: Likely Very Naive Question, sheet film then scan to produce a digital print.

    My sentiments exactly! A good term for this is direct imaging (versus indirect imaging with scans), and it's what I've done.

    I purchased a Phase One P45+ digital back from Digital Transitions...
  2. Re: Please Help Identify "Type Y" Caltar Lens

    That's what originally interested me in the lens. It's nice having a diminutive lens for such a long focal length. And for 4x5, a 270mm (or so) image circle is plenty large. As for aperture, I...

    Re: Medium-Format Digital Images

    I'll post an image later. I have a factory refurbished P45+ that I purchased a few months ago and use on a medium format view camera. Very nice combination! While I may do some transparencies,...

    Re: Sturdy 4x5?

    It's hard to go wrong with a Norma for this kind of thing. It even looks the part for holding large lenses.

    Consider customizing a 6" base rail as I did in the following thread. It makes it...

    They've done all my repair work for many years. They have a guaranty for their work, so you could give them a try. I'm sure that most of their work these days is digital. But, they were going...

  9. Re: Please Help Identify "Type Y" Caltar Lens

    Here's the dot pattern. It was tricky for the camera to see the patter as I observed it. As you can see, there are two sets of three. One is clearly on top, and the other is clearly on the bottom....
  10. Please Help Identify "Type Y" Caltar Lens

    While browsing for some Sinar accessories at KEH.com, I caught sight of this little 240mm Caltar lens a few days ago. I was intrigued by it's size, so I took a chance and purchased it for $99. My...
  11. Re: Computer hardware when editing large format files (100MP+)

    Try Photoshop and Lightroom with a 30 day free trail. If this doesn't work, then it may be your hardware, because it should be able to handle large files. If it does work, the problem could be with...

    I don't know that much about monitors, but . . .

    I just purchased a BenQ SW240 graphics quality monitor with which I'm very pleased. It claims to have a gamut that is 99% of Adobe RGB (1998) and...

    Re: Hi from Ireland

    What kind of photography do you look forward to doing, whether color or black and white?

    Do you want to enlarge, or scan on black and white? (Or contact print?)

    In your search, if you were to get a D2, you would want a D2V. With a D2V, one can adjust the condensers for different formats. (i.e. 4x5, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6, 35mm). With the D2 on the EBay listing,...

    Re: Which lens next?

    For wide, consider a Fuji 105mm SW. 90mm is the obligatory wide lens for architecture, but not necessarily for landscape.

    Or, the Schneider 110mm Super Symmar.

    Re: Tripod Head Needed for 8X10

    Either the 3057 or a 3039, which is the upgrade from a 3047. I like the 3039 because it's balanced front to back and left to right. The 3039 is also rated at 22 lbs.

    If any of these hexagonal...

    Arca Boards on Sinar Cameras?

    Probably not . . .

    But, is there any chance that (with or without modification) an Arca 141mm lens board would fit in a Sinar standard? They are so close to the same size.

    Has anyone run...
  22. Re: Scanning 4x5: Buying an Epson Flatbed VS my current DSLR (5DII) VS Lab Scans

    Sorry to hear about your loss of equipment. What a disappointment.

    Whether or not one has insurance, the sad thing is that film equipment can't always be replaced.
