    Re: Screen Cezanne Users Unite

    I don't think many of us are using their Cezannes to scan opaque things, but first you'll want to try a fresh bulb if you have it. Secondly, if the darker areas are too dark, change the SD settings...

    I have both the Nikkor 90mm f/8 as well as the Schneider 90mm XL, and have used both on my Linhof Master Technika, as well as other 4x5 cameras.

    I would never bring the giant Schneider out in the...

    75mm is a tough focal length for the Master Technika.

    I suggest you get one of the many cheap non-Technika recessed boards available on eBay or elsewhere with a moderate amount of recess. The...

    Re: The Setup and the Shot

    Yeah I've never actually pushed it out to its limit. 800mm total length I think, without any kind of lens extension. I might try something with my 240mm tonight which'll be even higher mag.

    I wonder how many folks have asked Intrepid to make a 5x7? Wouldn't hurt to email them if that's your jam. My guess is the market for 5x7 cameras is dwarfed by demand for 4x5 / 8x10. I could be wrong.
