    Re: Schneider Symmar S 210 5.6 help

    Cine Xenotar 150

    There exists mount of Xenotar 150 that was intended for Cinema/TV cameras.

    Is it different design (like is AV Xenotar) or is it simply the same as LF lens but in different mount?

  9. Re: Voigtländer Euryscop No. 6 Series IV Real World Coverage ?

    Another useful concept to have is that the subject distance for the 1:1 image (that is when the subject in front of the lens is the same size as the image) is double of focal length from the lens...
  10. Re: Voigtländer Euryscop No. 6 Series IV Real World Coverage ?

    Normal lens for given format (X x Y, say 8 x 10) is roughly square root of (X squared + Y squared) (i.e. Pythagoras theorem). So for 8x10" it is square root (8 square + 10 squared) = square root (64...
  11. Re: Voigtländer Euryscop No. 6 Series IV Real World Coverage ?

    You can think of lens coverage in the following terms.

    Lens have two basic properties. The lens has angle of view in the front of the lens. This depends on the lens focal length. The lens has...

  25. Re: What lens will work for a 35x35 inch ULF mammoth wet plate camera?

    It does but the adapter has to be long and strong. You will also get very well corrected image because lens were best corrected in the middle. It would be an interesting experiment indeed.
