    Re: Upgrading a lens shutter

    Louie, no couplers are required. You may have been thinking of swapping cells from a Graflex 1000 shutter -- the lens was supplied in that shutter too -- into a regular normal #1.

    It is a...

    Re weights, see post #5 above. None of the lenses mentioned in that post will go into shutter.

  6. Re: Any tips on how to repair lenses with Balsam Separation?

    What are the lenses? I ask because modern lenses don't use Canada balsam. The adhesives that replaced it aren't softened by heat.

    Re: 210mm F5.6 Lens For 8x10

    Sal, early in the discussion I asked the OP if he absolutely had to have f/5.6. He replied that he could live with f/6.8.

  9. Re: Advice for Handheld 4x5 and Flash Please..

    FWIW, years ago when I was setting up I asked my Minolta Flash Meter (the original one) about my Vivitar 283s. Both are one stop under spec at full power, on spec from half power down on the VP-1. ...

    Which filter did you put on it? I ask because there's not too bad image in the corners.

  15. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Thanks for the kind word. About using a stronger CF than recommended, try it and see whether you like the effect.

    FWIW, I bought that #III because I wasn't comfortable with the idea of using my...
  16. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    You didn't get it at all. The CF does nothing to, by, for, against or with mechanical vignetting. It is denser in the center than at the edge, transmits relatively less light to the center of the...

    If I were you, I'd buy one of Igor's filters with the right of...
  18. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Alan, take out a lens. Any lens. Open its diaphragm completely. Hold the lens at arms length. Look through it. Straight through is. Rotate it slowly and watch what happens to the exit pupil. ...
  19. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Which lens do you use it on?

    Stopping down has no effect on cos^4. It does reduce mechanical vignetting, which is why Rodenstock and Schneider recommend that w/a lenses be stopped down at least...
  20. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    PMFJI. Alan, movements increase the angle between the lens' axis and the edges and corners of the gate. The larger the angle, the worse the falloff. This is true for all lenses.

    Center filters...
  21. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    They are the same. cos^4(theta) works the same for nearly all lenses. For a very few lenses the exponent is somewhat less than 4, but the effect is still the same, just not quite as large.

    If the bellows were as long as the rail, movements would be impossible with full extension. Bellows are usually longer than the rail.
