    Re: help choosing portrait lens?

    I've seen some nice images from Heliar, but the Fuji 240A delivers as well, not to mention several variations of Fuji 250. Don't have any info on the F4.5, but the F6.3 and F6.7 will cover 5x7 and...

    Re: Copal 0 shutter accuracy

    I've talked with Carol that the higher speeds tend to under-perform, she assured me that this is a norm even if the shutter was totally redone. I've had over 1/2 dozen shutters CLA'd (at once) and...
  5. Re: Suggestions for a low cost incident light meter

  8. Re: 150mm lens suggestion for landscapes on a Cambo 45NX

    From my understanding you need 153mm coverage for basic 4x5. If you don't need a shutter....the price will drop significantly. You'll always be able to get the expensive APO's, etc etc....that is...

    I looked up 850nm filter and it's described as 200X limiting factor (7.6 f-stops). Not really clear on linearity here, but in my silly brain that would have been 1.52 f-stop difference (1/5th). ...
