    Re: Calumet C1 Repair and questions

    @reddesert Thanks for the tips! I'll get some steel wool then, I don't want to damage the camera.


    That second plate you point out is the best one. On the bottom of the C1 is two holes, 1/4-20...

    Yep, good that he was willing to explore and haul that gear around.

    As for the C1, I'm still mulling the tripod plate scenario. I need to see how a Majestic attaches to a tripod. I'm worried it's...

    For this setup I'm adhering to Edward Weston's rule: "Anything more than 500 yards from the car just isn't photogenic."

    Re: Calumet C1 Repair and questions

    The problem with that is the base of the C1 is 6.5" x 5" and looks like so:

    Which is smaller than the the Kessler. I looked into a Majestic head and it's pretty cheap used. Might be the...

    Well, the Z2+ that I currently own has a 132 pound load capacity. The trick is finding an AS plate with a larger base than the typical narrow plate. Maybe I'll contact RRS and see what they say....

    Calumet C1 Repair and questions

    On an impulse recently, I bought a green monster on ebay. It has a fair amount of corrosion, mold like and some rust. I had a vague idea of stripping it down, but don't trust myself to put it back...

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

    Pere - I think you misunderstand, I don't pay someone in NYC to scan my negatives. I rent a Flextight by the hour and scan them myself (in 3F). The scanner is much easier to use than the Epson and...
  11. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    I'm very interested in this thread. In 2013, I had a show with 21 prints, mostly 30x40 with three at 40x50. I scanned them in NYC on a Flextight in NYC and though I had no experience whatsoever with...

    Re: Intrepid 8x10 Camera

    I've never shot 8x10 so I don't know that context. In 4x5 I mainly use my 350mm and my 450mm most often and there are times I wish I had the bellows draw to use a 600mm on 4x5. The Ritter (812mm) and...

    Looking forward to the 8x10. I don't see myself shooting enough of that to justify a more expensive camera and I need something lightweight so this looks perfect. Too bad about the Sinar part but I...
  25. Re: Kodak 4X5 B&W to be packaged in 10 sheet boxes (only)?

    I just bought a 50 sheet box of Tri-X for 99.95 (three weeks ago) and now it's 114.95. Unless B&H was having a sale and I didn't realize it.
  26. Re: Kodak 4X5 B&W to be packaged in 10 sheet boxes (only)?

    Just saw that they raised the prices on the 50 sheet boxes as well! How does that track? Is that to punish us for not buying the 10 sheet boxes?
  27. Re: Kodak 4X5 B&W to be packaged in 10 sheet boxes (only)?

    I like the 10 sheet boxes. I shoot mostly Portra in 4x5 but do occasionally see something I want in B&W and never shoot more than six on a given trip. It'll be nice not to have to pull one of those...
