    Re: How Many LF Formats Do You Use/Own?

    Three: Definitely 6x9 and 4x5. I'm selling all my 8x10 lenses, but will likely keep my 8x10 for a particular project.

    4x5 is black and white.

    6x9 is primarily for digital color, though...
  3. Re: Replacement Bellows for 8x10 Sinar Norma

    Custom Bellows just replaced a Sinar 8x10 bellows for me a few months ago. Excellent job, as usual with them. I wouldn't go to anyone else.
  4. Re: which Spot lightmeter for field use (dead Spotmeter V) ?

    Of course, Pentax Digital spot meters are excellent. I just purchased a Zone VI modified version.

    As a result, I sold a Minolta Digital Spotmeter F that I thought was good.

    Re: Arca-Swiss 5x7 platform restart

    I'm wondering how they'll price the 5x7 conversion kits?

    Of course, they'll assume a 141mm front format frame. But, one might (?) be able to attach a 171mm to 141mm reduction lensboard to the...

    I have a Luland 171mm adapter to 6x9 that works well. Fit is tight; no wiggle room.

    Re: Where’s all my zone system experts??

    Sounds similar to John Sexton's approach; he uses masking with black and white film, and he's careful about minus development. For example, one of the techniques that he demonstrated in his Fine...

    Re: The zone system. Do I have this right?

    Yes. With the testing I've done, that tends to be my experience.

    But, we can probably say that the 1/2 ASA guideline has it's limitations. I do calibrations once every couple of years, and I'm...

    Re: The zone system. Do I have this right?

    Expansion and contraction is the point, especially with black and white film. It's too bad that we can't do the same thing to the same degree with color; but, color tolerances are too tight.

    Re: Nikkor 90mm; f/8 vs f/4.5

    And, the 90mm f8 Nikon lens is an 8 element lens that has the same image circle (235mm) as most f5.6 90mm super wide lenses. That's the clincher for me, and why I prefer it to any f5.6 version.

    Re: Arca-Swiss 5x7 platform restart

    I don't doubt that the front frame will be the 141mm series.

    But if I'm not mistaken, B&H images show the camera with the 171mm format frame. :confused:

  34. Re: Using a Zone VI enlarger for 5x7, or other alternatives?

  35. Re: Using a Zone VI enlarger for 5x7, or other alternatives?
