    Re: Starting with ULF

    Before committing to ULF consider negative storage. Sleeves in you preferred size may well require some searching. Likewise print storage is a consideration. As mentioned, tray size may be an issue,...

  7. Re: Seeking Advice For Shutter on Vintage Lenses

  9. Re: Removing a 21" Kodak Ektanon from a Prism

    Michael,

    It looks like the cell for the front element is deep enough to provide fairly good purchase if you were to grab on to it. Have you tried a length of lamp cord as a "wrench"? This is the...
  10. Re: The Mystery of Dad's Nikkor-W 210m f5.6

    The difference between the lenses may simply have been a means to use up existing inventory before switching to the newer version. Off-the-shelf is always cheaper to produce.

    To further muddy the waters (sorry!), I had always heard that the Super Angulon 121mm would barely cover 8x10, straight on, but that the Nikkor SW 120 f/8 will not quite cover.

    Re: Nikkor M 450 F9 - Question

    Everybody's mileage varies. But for me, 450 on 8x10 is a bit long for H+S portraits. My choice is for something in the 12" - 14" range. And there are a LOT of choices in that range.
