    Re: Beseler Condenser Settings

    As you expand the upper bellows when using a condenser head the illuminated area gets smaller. Basically you need the smallest area that adequately illuminates the format you are using. I think the...

    Re: post your trees!

    I especially like the second on with the strong boundary at the bottom - the reverse of a lot of landscapes against the sky.

    When I was a child, physical access to Stonehenge was no trouble. Now the volume of visitors has brought more controls. If only I'd had a large format camera back then!

  6. Re: Let's see your landscape lens (with meniscus / achromat lens)

    The nearest I have to this is not vintage (though I think the BDB 40.5mm +3 meniscus lens is over 50 years old now!). The +3 is mounted behind a standard Copal #0 shutter, which gives me around a...
  7. Re: 3D Printing a lens board adapter?

    For things like lens boards or adapters (I have one for using Wista/Technika boards on my MPP VII), OpenSCAD works well. It is usually just a case of describing an object in terms of simple primitive...
  8. Re: How does rear tilt affect front tilt?

    Doremus has it right. Normally the focus plane (ground, for want of a better example), the 'lens plane', and the film plane need to meet on a line for Schleimflug focus. If the back is over-tilted...

    Re: DIY top hat lensboard extension

    90mm of extension must make front tilt/swing very sensitive? It looks like a robust solution and a lot more elegant than things I put together from ABS plumbing parts!
  12. Re: Today (April 26, 2020) is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day

    We moved into a new house in January, so the garden is still unexplored territory photographically. I put a 6x9 roll film back on the MPP, and used my shutter mounted pinhole. The shutter is only...

    Re: Aircraft

    Looks like a still from The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which would be in period. Those were the days - the only thing keeping people away from the planes was a low wall and manual gate 8-)

    Re: How Have You Made a Plastic GG

    I have used a single coat of spray window frosting on acrylic with success. You need to practice to get an even coverage, and obviously avoid a propellant that is also a solvent. It worked at 8x10,...

    It feels like a still from a Buster Keaton movie. The tree is vertical, so I imagine the only thing holding the building up is sheer stubborness!

    I usually use some sort of hand-held shade, like the dark slide.

    That's rather like what happens when I get a caulking gun in my hands!

    There just has to be a record of something like this. It's very strange.

  27. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

  28. Re: Schneider 90mm Angulon on MPP mk VIII

    You are not going to get a lot of front movements on an MPP with that short a focal length. And getting your fingers in to manipulate the front standard is fiddly. If you can live with back movements...

    Re: 5x7 back for Intrepid 8x10

    The Intrepid (Kickstarter version) is bellows limited with short focal lengths (say under 180mm). I can get a 90mm to focus by recessing it, but back tilt is about all the movement you have. I can do...
