    Re: Lupex Paper

    That Lupex print is excessively contrasty and ugly green. The second issue might be readily tamed by means of selenium toning.

    My experience with Lupex is that it needs a negative tailored to the...
  2. Re: Is there such as thing as a modern, fast, compact 360 for 8x10?

    Nah, if the question were "Coke or Pepsi," my answer would be "neither." :)
  3. Re: Is there such as thing as a modern, fast, compact 360 for 8x10?

    I have no direct experience with the 360mm Symmar-S, but did own and use several shorter focal lengths in that series. I do own and use the 360mm Sironar-N. I'd not hesitate for a minute to answer...

    I've heard that you northern California guys think of us down here as a separate country. Is this confirmation? :)

    Way back when Kodak was on the brink of bankruptcy I stockpiled what for me was a lifetime supply of XTOL. Granted, at the time, it was U.S-made and packaged in laminated polyester-aluminum...

    Re: Mat Size vs. Mount Size

    There have been many mounting variations over time. The earliest ones I bought around 40 years ago were dry mounted to heavy paper. My most recent one came mounted on 14x17 4-ply board and had a...

    Re: Is Oriental Seagull paper gone too?

    +1. I laid in a supply of ADOX MCC 110 soon after its production was "paused" at the beginning of this year. Still shinier than I'd like, but at least tolerable.

    Staying on the explicit topic of this thread, I own a 150mm Apo Sironar N, but not a 150mm Apo Sironar S, so can't provide any personal experience. However, five years ago there was discussion about...
  13. Re: Rodenstock Apo Sironar N or Apo Sironar S 150mm f/5.6

    Not a valid comparison. Rodenstock provided MTF graphs for the N and W at magnification 1:20. For the S, at 1:10.

  16. Re: Justify the acquiring of a new Linhof Technika?

    Not any more. I bought one brand new in 1985. It was the least reliable vehicle I've ever owned. Now I drive a 2003 Honda Accord. It's the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. :)

    Let's (once again) straighten out some things:


    "Art" is a meaningless word. Since it can be whatever anyone believes it is, it is anything. And it's nothing.
