    Looks like an archive. We should thank the Almighty that it is available. I regret to inform you that you seem to be 7 years too late for meaningful intercourse there.

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Very nice results, Aidan. Reminds me of a favorite “junk lens” I often use, a 5x7 Gundlach Radar.

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Whatever lens you get, check that there are soft focus filters (softar, soft/fx, or the like) available in that size. For a lot of portraiture, you'll want something to cut the sharpness.

  18. Re: Where should I send my Copal shutters for a CLA?

    I haven’t talked to them in a couple of years and you might want to call them. Steve’s Camera Repair in Culver City, CA did great work for me in the past.
  19. Re: Where should I send my Copal shutters for a CLA?

    Any decent camera repair shop should be able to do the work for you if they are still willing to service mechanical shutters. A routine leaf shutter service is a rather basic skill to a camera tech.

    Interesting. A rather complicated table, though. If I read it correctly, Stroebel is generally consistent with Kodak except Stroebel works in units of 1/4 second and Kodak in units of 1/3 second.
