    Yeah, this bothered me too....
  2. Re: Wanderlust Travelwide distance markings

    One of my few criticisms of that wonderful project is that the distance markings are SO SMALL ! Ben and Justin, if you're reading this, Thanks again for the passion and hard work.
  3. Re: Seized lens? C.P. Goerz Rapid Paraplanat II

    Very often, external aperture rings are threaded onto male external threads on the barrel, I DO NOT suggest banging on it to try to move it forwards or backwards. Also, be careful what solvents you...
  4. Re: Looking for info on a Goerz 14 inch lens.

    ALSO: the aperture markings are probably either "US" stops. Are they "2, 4, 8, 16, 32" etc? If so, it's the "Universal System" where US-16 = f/16, and all others are one stop apart, with US 8 being...
  5. Re: Goerz Doppel Anastigmat Serie III No 7 360mm f6 COVERAGE or lens catalogue

    The lenses with underrated coverage are often lenses for the repro industry, where the utmost critical sharpness (always less in the margins) was the order of the day.
  6. Re: Goerz Doppel Anastigmat Serie III No 7 360mm f6 COVERAGE or lens catalogue

    Take a good look at the old catalog page Dan Fromm shared a link to. It gives coverage wide open, at moderate stops, and all the way down. It's an early catalog, before some of the shorter Fls were...

    I downloaded and zoomed in on the photo showing your aperture scale. It appears to be marked in "the Goerz System" rather than International stops(the F/stop scale we all know today).

  9. Re: Goerz Doppel Anastigmat Serie III No 7 360mm f6 COVERAGE or lens catalogue

    Nobody says the 14" Series III Dagor will cover 20"x24" because it won't. The linked catalog page suggests 18"x22" stopped all the way down which is 90 degrees, which is in fact, the limit of these...

    There are a handful of common process lens flange sizes used by Schneider, Nikkor, and Rodenstock. I'm sure it will be one of those, possibly 90/1.
    I have not owned a 600 Apo-Ronar, but can tell...

    Think about lens focal lengths as they relate to the long and short sides, (and the diagonals) of the formats in question. 14" lens on 11x14 will be like to a 10" lens on 8x10, or a 5" lens on 4x5....

    No. It went back to Polaroid, 100%. He stole the Fuji 1200mm lens though.
  20. Re: Polaroid 20x24 Cameras and standard films?

    Right. As mentioned elsewhere, Ron built an aftermarket cassette (which took a 150' roll of Polaroid negative) and separate processor that were compatible with the 20x24 "field" cameras he was...

    Ancient history. I believe it was only there for a couple months or less anyway and went back to Polaroid.

    Re: How to get into ULF? THE RIGHT WAY.

    I would suggest finding an inexpensive 8"x10" set up and working with it for a few months(shoot, process your own film, make prints) before considering ULF. Smaller than 8"x10" won't, in my opinion,...
  29. Re: To what model does this Deardorff back belong?

    Also worth noting, that the 8x10 part is from a sliding carriage back, and may NOT fit a V8.
