    +1 on using a Packard shutter. You can always get a couple of square plastic Neutral Density filters.

    Re: Help request - Darlot lens

    I have a nice Dagor in a Volute shutter mounted on my RB67 with an adapter that accepts a Technika-type lensboard so it's perfectly feasible to use older lenses on "more modern" cameras. If the...

    Re: explain like I'm 5......... 90mm lenses

    My wide angle lens is a Super Angulon with a center filter. I use it on 4 x 5 (Technika) and 5 x 7 (with not much in the way of movements - pretty much on center only - but it's really wide!)

  13. Re: Drum Scan vs DSLR vs Epson Scan (From Nick Carver's Youtube Channel)

    Hi Pere.

    I don't think anyone says the Epson isn't a nice scanner - it is and for the price it's hard to beat. If it had autofocus it would be a better scanner. And we can all do good work with...
  14. Re: Drum Scan vs DSLR vs Epson Scan (From Nick Carver's Youtube Channel)

    I don't even have a drum scanner - just a Lowly IQsmart 2. And I don't prefer the Epson 750/850. I have one, but haven't seen a need to use it since I got the Creo/Kodak. Which is what I actually...

    I went with an IQsmart 2 - I got it refurbed by so it was around $5k. Not that much more than a Canon 5D with a good macro lens I guess.

    I still have the Epson 750 sitting around - not sure if...

  25. Re: Please Sign This Petition to Adobe Regarding DUST and SCRATCHES on Scans

    I always use the Spot healing Tool and can usually clean up a photo with it in 10 - 15 minutes.Less if it's really clean, more if the cat walks on the negatives before I scan them.
