    Re: How I fold my 8x10 Chamonix View Camera

    Well I thought it was a very informative video, just what this forum should advocate. And I don't even own a Chamonix LOL, all of my views have fixed front standards to the focusing rail so they...

    Re: Odd marks on film?

    White marks sure look like hair/fuzz to me at time of negative exposure. Not sure about the others if they're also on the negative.
  7. Re: Examples of Large Format shots that cannot be done with small

    Here's one that can't be made on 35mm or digital, because it's on private land and only I know where this is at and I only took this picture with using LF.

  12. Re: Does anyone use a digital body with a telephoto as a spot meter?

    No, a lot easier (more compact, lighter) to carry my spotmeter than my digital camera and long lens and I usually don't have both with me when I'm out and about.
