  3. Re: Lee filters with LF lenses and ultra long exposures

    It might just be simpler and easier to use a pinhole instead of a lens!
  4. Re: Focus Calibration on Crown Graphic Special

    If you have a dial (or digital, better) caliper, you can do a quick check.

    First, remove the graflock back focus panel and turn it over to view the inside. At the four corners are nice flat places...

    Re: Speed Graphic Shutter Checking?

    Boy you guys just love to overthink things and discuss in circles :p

    All other niceties aside, I've found this to be a common problem with shutters that were "home" serviced, botched by 'professionals' or just old and neglected. Simply old oil in the workings. I've...
  9. Re: Alternate History of Photography: how early could it have been invented?

    What bad feelings???

    After a quick check, I found that they had silver sulfate which works very similar to silver nitrate in the late 1400's. I would suppose that we have no "photographs" from...
