    Re: New to this world, looking for advice.

    Last time I helped someone in a similar situation was about 9 years ago. We found a very nice Graphic View on Craig's list for $120 with lens and film holders. He went all out, we got a D3 OMEGA for...

    Re: Chamonix vs. Xxxxx?

    When the Shen-Hao 8x10 first came on the market, it was about $1000 less than the Chamonix, so I went that route. Though now I see they are priced about the same. Either way, you might check out the...

  14. Re: Test Targets for Dialing in B&W Development

    When I first did this in the 1970s, I went hog-wild with minimum exposure for maximum black and wound up with negatives developed to way too high gamma. In real life, you can probably go with the...
  15. Re: Test Targets for Dialing in B&W Development

    To be exact, ASA specified development to achieve a specific point on an H&D curve. But for first time testing, consider that development has minimal effect on Zone I.
    So, set your exposure index...

    Placing a diffusion sheet on the inside of a window works. If you move in close to frame it make sure the lens stays on infinity.

    Good pickup Havoc. The Seiko shutters need to have the shutter cocked.
    In terms of the VXM lever, the shutter should have a self timer on 'V.'
