  1. Re: Simple Q for LF newby: Lens shade (trad 35mm type) vs. Compendium Lens Hood

    I use an Ambico lens shade, that clips tothe 67mm filter rings that i have standardized on. I guess it was made for something like a Mamiya RB or RZ, but it works very well on a 4x5 as it is fully...
  2. Re: Camera Selection: Tachihara, Toyo 45Aii or xxxxxx?

  3. Re: Pre-soak for manual 4x5 B&W development in a Jobo tank?

  4. Re: Best B&W Film/Developer combo - for big enlargements via DSLR scanning

    The Delta100 is an excellent film to shoot fine detail. I always developed it in XTOL 1+1 and on smaller formats that combo was good enough to show all the flaws in my Pentax prime lenses.

    Re: Which lens next?

    Why not both? A 90 - 150 - 240 is a very nice set. And I would prefer a 240mm over a 210mm, because the focal lengths spread out more evenly. But it depends a lot on your shooting style and what you...
