    Re: Linhof Serial Numbers

    Hello Bob,

    I received a tan coloured Technika V 4x5, serial number 2142363. What surprised me was that there is a Fresnel screen mounted between the ground glass an the lens, with the Fresnel...

  3. Re: The search of the golden bullet - Ilford FP4+/Hp5+ in ID-11 / D+76 (minimum amoun

    Of course! You are absolutely right. That's why I asked what the minimum quantity is. When I read the ID11 datasheet that talks about 10 films in 1000ml stock solution, I think the minimum amount per...
  4. Re: The search of the golden bullet - Ilford FP4+/Hp5+ in ID-11 / D+76 (minimum amoun

    Thank you very much, Bill!

    So I will start with 50ml (~2 ounces) of developer and 150ml (~6 ounces) of water per 4x5 sheet (dilution 1+3), being on the safer side. Whether there is enough...

  6. Re: The search of the golden bullet - Ilford FP4+/Hp5+ in ID-11 / D+76 (minimum amoun

    Yes, Rodinal is quite economical. My own results are also along the lines of 5ml per 135/36 film, which is 1.6ml per 4x5 sheet. I actually like Rodinal a lot. Especially since it really is very...

  15. Re: Do's and Don't's of Linhof Technika IV

    Don't squeeze your finger in the gap around the focus button.

    Never use WD40 or anything else that will evaporate and thus end up on the bellows.

    Never unscrew or "adjust" the rangefinder.

  23. Re: Seeking a newer 4x5 camera for mostly landscape

    How about a Horseman 45FA? It has nearly the same features as a Technika, but weighs only 2.4kg.

  26. Re: What small lightweight lens for 4x5 backpacking?

    I quite agree. If it is only a single lens I would either use the Rodenstock Geronar 6.3/150 (Caltar) or the Schneider-Kreuznach G-Claron 9/150. The first one is very well coated, which improves...

  38. Re: How To Properly Determine Infinity For a Lens?

  40. Re: How To Properly Determine Infinity For a Lens?

    You can buy new cams and sharpen them yourself. I would prefer this solution. You don't have to "adjust" anything. You build yourself the cams you need, depending on the things you focus. You only...
