  1. Re: Which first Rear Movement and Asymmetrical Tilt Chamonix 45F2

    That's really not quite true either. My original comments still apply to the Chamonix, since there's no way to easily transfer angle changes to the front standard. The Sinar P, and other cameras...
  2. Re: CatLABS X FILM 80 MKII now available in 8X10

    Brad Pitt looks like he's put on a bit of weight for this role.

    It definitely looks like it's going to be an exciting donut action thriller!!!
  3. Re: Which first Rear Movement and Asymmetrical Tilt Chamonix 45F2

    Maybe I was a little too hasty in my last reply. If the Chamonix rear standard has precise tilt angle markings, you could do a calculation to transfer the desired focus angle change to the front...
  4. Re: Which first Rear Movement and Asymmetrical Tilt Chamonix 45F2

    Hmmmm, that's an interesting question.

    You need to tilt the back to change perspective, but you also need to tilt the back to make use of the asymmetrical tilt focusing feature. I don't...

    I made a table of bellows extension factors, and printed it out on a sheet of paper that I can fold up and carry with me when needed. That works great if I remember to take the sheet with me.

    So true. Nowadays, I save money on film by "pre-visualizing" all the lousy stuff I might have taken. No need to lug around a heavy camera and tripod either.

    Re: Question about Linhof Kardan Bellows

    Question about Linhof Kardan Bellows

    I got an old Linhof Bi Kardan recently, and it had an oddball bellows. It looks like a combination bag bellows and regular bellows, since it has the features of both.

  27. Re: Please help me identify the source of this light leak on my negatives.

    Some humidifiers and dehumidifiers use UV light to kill bacteria. You'd think devices like that would be well shielded, but who knows.
  28. Re: Please help me identify the source of this light leak on my negatives.

    Did you buy all your boxes of HP5 from the same store? Maybe they've got some issue with how they store the film (near a heat source maybe). it's still grasping at straws though.

    Re: Equivalent in 35 mm terms

    Another way to look at it is as a multiplier to the standard focal length.

    The standard focal length for 35mm is around 50mm, and the standard focal length for 5x7 is around 210mm. Your 610mm...

  31. Re: Please help me identify the source of this light leak on my negatives.

    Has the film been through any airport X-Ray scanners since you've had it? The general fogging could be caused by an X-Ray scanner, but I don't know how some sheets could remain unaffected. Maybe...

    If you remove the battery after use and tape over the vent holes, will that prolong the life of the zinc-air batteries? I've started to do that, but I'm wondering if I'm just wasting my time.
