    Re: Need A Decent Lab Scale For A Decent Price

    I have purchased from them as well. I purchased a jewelry scale with a tare function and a weight for calibration. I believe the brand was MyWeigh as well.

    Re: Wista 45VX/RF/SP bellows draw and idea

    I should mention that with longer lenses I rarely use tilt, so the top hat board is not a problem for me. I guess it depends on what you photograph. I mostly photograph landscapes and use the longer...

    Re: Wista 45VX/RF/SP bellows draw and idea

    Even if you have a longer bellows you will be limited by the mechanical limits of the camera's ability to extend. I don't think you will get what you want with just a longer bellows.

    Re: Technikardan 45 S
