    Re: Where Do Y’all Stick Your Triggers?

    The cheap clamps you can find online (I bought this one on Amazon) with a 1/4-20 stud or threaded hole work well with a flash cold shoe. I used a ball head cold shoe and it can be oriented a bunch of...

    David,

    Will a 5x7 sheet fit the long way into the grooves if you take the rear center support out? My CL-81 doesn't have that rear center clip that is causing the issue. I am curious if I buy...

  7. Re: What is the lightest 4x5 field camera with a rotating back?

    Out of curiosity, I placed my Nagaoka on my postal scales and it registered 2 lbs 11 oz without lensboard or lens.

    And if a rotating back on a field camera is absolutely necessary, I also weighed...
  8. Re: What is the lightest 4x5 field camera with a rotating back?

    Though you have to reposition the back 90 degrees rather than rotating the back, the Anba Ikeda 4x5 is very light.

  12. Re: Jobo CPE2 with paper tanks for 8x10 film developing?

    If I remember correctly, the CPE-2 in the OP's photo is fitted with an optional top that had slots cut to use the same NOVA pod inserts as the manual ones that I have. If so, they will not fit the...
