  1. Re: Epson V850 work-around for scanning 5x7 negatives.

    Yes. Emulsion side down. That's what I do.

    IMO 300 samples per inch is too low if one intends to print the scans, but with sheet film there are difficult tradeoffs to be made between scan...

    Re: Photographs Shot Using Your 11x14 Camera

    No, alas, Fuji isn't doing special cuts any more. AFAIK it's no longer possible to get transparency film in ULF sizes.

    Michael, thanks for sharing - I can only imagine what those transparencies...

    Re: Rethinking my 4x5 Field Camera choice

    Minimum flange-to-film on my late-model 4x5 Nagaoka is about 55mm. Of course, no useful movement at that point, but if I extend it for a 75, there's a bit of wiggle room. I'd guess that the older...

    Re: Rethinking my 4x5 Field Camera choice

    Perhaps it would be easier just to have an adapter lensboard made so you can use the Nagaoka boards on your monorail, rather than going through a lot of selling and buying to completely rearrange...

    Poll: Re: Poll: most used ULF formats

    Yeah, it's funny... my intuitive sense of relative size for formats is driven by area rather than diagonal, and by that measure 7x11 is a bit smaller than 8x10. (But yeah, the Eastman #2 is big and...

    Poll: Re: Poll: most used ULF formats

    I'll see you and raise you: the actual film size of factory-cut 7x11 doesn't quite make it, so exposing the whole thing is of no avail. :p

    Now if you're cutting your own sheets from larger film...

    Poll: Re: Poll: most used ULF formats

    You can split hairs over whether 7x11 qualifies as ULF by our definition here - if you do the arithmetic on the nominal 7x11 size it barely does, if you use the actual film dimensions or the actual...

    Re: Horseman 45FA/HD/HF and 75mm lens

    Schneider specifies the maximum diameter of the rear cell of the 80 SS-XL as 43.0 mm, so it should be an easy fit to the Horseman front standard.
