    Re: 5x12 Lens kit

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

    The Nikkor 120mm f/8 covers 8x10 just barely (312mm). I would be tempted first to see if...

    Since I had my Cezanne on and some old negatives at hand I popped one of the black and whites I happened to have scanned with my old Microtek back in the day to see, and this definitely shows the...

    Re: Help me choose a camera to hike 2000+ miles

    Yeah those Mamiyas are big, way bigger than more simple TLRs. I have a few different Rolleis, so probably would choose one of those based on weight, condition, and lens (I am quite partial to a very...
  9. 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...

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

    One nice thing about Crown / Speed Graphics is the extra tripod mount on the side. Would be nice to have one on the Linhof but instead it has a handle mount. Of course you could hack it to have that,...

    Insisting on handheld cameras, for the purposes of landscape which was my assumption, I think is a very bad idea. Even with 400-speed film I would...

    You might not consider weight, but you should.

    Linhof Master Technika is too heavy. Full stop. I've hiked with it. Don't even consider it, there's no benefit to it in this situation.

    You mentioned the hood specifically, so I wasn't sure if you are using the hood to control flare from extraneous light as well or just as a filter holder. I don't use a Lee hood - if I have oblique...

    Use sRGB and you'll be a lot less frustrated. Unless you have a meticulous understanding of your color workflow, any other color space is a waste of your time.

    I highly doubt the folks at Lee are that well versed on their filters on uncommon 4x5 cameras!

    That said, I can tell you that 4x6 filters are a bear to use on the Linhof for this very reason (and...
