  1. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    My V850 has a LED light that is not hot like the V700's. PLus, the 4x5 V850 holders press the film against a built-in mounted ANR glass to keep it flat unlike the V700 holders. The V850 holders...
  2. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    If someone wants to scan one of my negatives with a drum for comparison, I'd be glad to send the negative to you. I'd love to see what a drum scan can do with it and see what a comparison between...
  3. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Yes. The new Epson V850 holders come with 5 stop adjustments, a slider at each corner of the holder. I set them at the optimum. One holder was the middle setting. And the other holder was the...
  4. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    PS. I used the Epson ANR glass negative holders that come with the V850 and scanned "flat" with no sharpening or changes in the scans other than setting the black and white points beyond the...

    I just got a V850 and scanned 2400 bit Tmax 100 in 4x5. I posted the edited ones on Flickr 1900x1600. If you want the originally sized scan, I could send them to a dropbox either before...

    Unfortunately, getting into large format photography requires buying used, at least for lenses.

    How does Silverfast change the speed of the V700 and V850 during multi exposure to slow it down to harvest more data? Have you actually seen this? Have you compared the results to a single normal...

    Sorry to say but with the economy the way it is, I think pawn shops will start getting a lot of camera stuff again as people need money to live.

    I just got a V850. Does Silverfast 8 SE Plus version that came with the scanner provide multipass and multi exposure or do I need to upgrade Silverfast? How does it do it?

    I just got a V850 as I started to shoot LF. These 4x5 Tmax 100's are scanned at 2400. I tried scanning at 3200 but couldn't see the difference. Should I scan at 3200 or 4800 or higher? The tiff...

    Re: 65mm lens comparison

    Why?

    I'm just getting into 4x5 and have a 75, 90 and 150mm. I do have a center filter for the 90mm but not the 75mm. I'm just starting to shoot and was wondering if you'd share your experience.

    I have a similar problem with my Chamonix 45H-1. Only the back standard tilts very slightly back when locked into the set. Is the adjustment on the back the same with the same size hex?
  33. Re: Are the higher shutter speeds on large format lenses always off?

    Last one. Fujinon 75mm f 5.6 large format 4x5
    Some speeds were right on. Others maybe 1/6 stop too fast like the 150mmm Schneider. But overall pretty accurate.

  36. Re: Are the higher shutter speeds on large format lenses always off?

    How can you get vignetting? That means at smaller f stops, you'll also get vignetting which doesn't happen. The lens is designed to avoid that.
  37. Re: Are the higher shutter speeds on large format lenses always off?

    Wider lenses give more light through the viewfinder or ground glass to see the subject, even if the camera stops down when your shoot the shot. Also, with slow film, at least on 35mm, you're able to...
