  1. Re: Portra 160 x 400 (4X5) mixed up (ay caramba)

    First, review exposure and ISO.

    Second, look at the notch codes on the box and in the dark match them up to the film. Done.

    Re: Moon lit scene with Txp 320

    T-Max 100 or Delta 100 will be "faster" than 400-speed film at a certain point, which you probably hit. Or if you've got some Acros, that's the "gold standard."
    TXP would be about the worst film to...

    Great question! I have scanned a few plates. At first I was a bit worried it would stick to the platen, but that wasn't an issue, nor did I have any issues with scanning. Obviously they were very...

    So what's the official image circle requirement for 5x12? From my quick calculations it seems like 325mm?

  24. Re: Lee Filter Hood With Linhof Master Technika?

    I have no idea what you are trying to say.

    I flip the camera to use fall. When using fall, with a GND, usually the filter needs to be higher on the lens to be on the horizon. Bam, same issue...
