    Re: Bergger Pancro 400 in sheets

    I encountered such flaws, too, definitely. Now I have bought 400 sheets of Ilford HP5+, that is definitely worth to be produced. I enjoy every negative, developed in HC110 H. It is very reliable....
  3. Re: Seeking a newer 4x5 camera for mostly landscape

    How about a Horseman 45FA? It has nearly the same features as a Technika, but weighs only 2.4kg.

    OK, you can only use Copal 0 and 1 lenses, up to 240mm, but you can focus up to 65mm without...
  4. Re: What small lightweight lens for 4x5 backpacking?

    Oh, please do not misunderstand me. I actually like the Feisol thing already. Once I have nailed or soldered the ball head to the tripod plate and the tripod plate to the tripod, it will be a very...
  5. Re: What small lightweight lens for 4x5 backpacking?

    Hello, I have an ultra light Feisol CT-3401 with an extra center column. I thought I'd take it with me for a hike. Because of the plus of possibilities I installed the center column. Everything was...
  6. Re: What small lightweight lens for 4x5 backpacking?

    I quite agree. If it is only a single lens I would either use the Rodenstock Geronar 6.3/150 (Caltar) or the Schneider-Kreuznach G-Claron 9/150. The first one is very well coated, which improves...

    Thank your creator that you do not live in Germany. There is "Schärfentiefe" and "Tiefenschärfe". The rest is regulated by Stroebels / Zakia's "Encyclodedia of Photography" ...

    Why do you want to reshoot it? Aren't 51.3 MP in colour enough, without specks and dust? Regards

  12. Re: eTone focusing cloths - opinions?

    Hi Scott,

    I like this dark cloth. I use it every time without thinking, it's never in the way. It protects the camera from the weather. When it's hot it's pretty cool. When it's cold it keeps the...

  14. Re: Light Meter for Large Format (4x5) Landscape Photography

    Hi, it seems that really all modern light meters since 1980 are suitable, and above all they are not expensive, because current cameras all have a built-in light meter with many refinements .

  15. Re: Light Meter for Large Format (4x5) Landscape Photography

    I prefer Sekonic, too, especially the L28c2. It costs ~40 USD on ebay ... They work accurately without battery. Even when it's cold or hot. Incident light with Rodinal 1+100 or HC110 H 1+63 is quite...
  16. Re: How To Properly Determine Infinity For a Lens?

    f5.6, 150mm, circle of confusion some mediocre 0.089mm, distance aperture to object 2,00m, bellows extension 12.162mm, distance film plane to object 2,16m. http://www.erik-krause.de/schaerfe.htm#top...
  17. Re: How To Properly Determine Infinity For a Lens?

    That's a good point (whereas the circle of confusion and the print size / viewing distance play an important role).

    But what do you "see" on your tiny ground glass? Every far away positioned...
  18. Re: How To Properly Determine Infinity For a Lens?

    Well, if your cams are tack sharp, everything is fine.

    Otherwise, I imagine that you mount a new cam, focus on the ground glass at a certain distance, 1m, with an aperture of 5.6, and then check...

    Good for you. Meanwhile I sent the crappy inserts back 2 weeks ago, on the instructions of Monsieur Bounet. He did not get back to me. The whole misery cost me 200 USD and 12 sheets of film. I will...
  20. Re: How To Properly Determine Infinity For a Lens?

    You can buy new cams and sharpen them yourself. I would prefer this solution. You don't have to "adjust" anything. You build yourself the cams you need, depending on the things you focus. You only...

    Re: 1935 Linhof ,,NORMA'' ???

    I don't think that Carl Hans Koch or Sinar in 1947 already thought of the F or P cameras of 1970. For me this is a sustainability myth of today.

    - What a pity that Sinar never produced a dedicated...

    "Normal" is petrol with 91 octane. "Super" is 95 octane. "Super Plus" is 98 octane. When a Porsche ran on "Normal", it was the affordable sports car for the low-income consumer.

  27. Lightweight lenses: Geronar 6.7/150 or G-Claron 9/150?

    MC vs. SC?

    Macro vs. landscape?

    3 lenses vs. more lenses?

    Rodenstock vs. Schneider?

    It has to fit into a Horseman field camera.

    I can't recommend it.

    I just developed 12 sheets in a Paterson 8 tank, Rollei Ortho 25@16 in Rodinal 1+100 10min. They came quite good, even without presoak. BUT: there are a lot of very long and deep scratches on the...
  30. Horseman FA bellows replacement

    Thank you. Not my own thought. But something repeated in an appropriate sense. We are all very privileged. So the camera doesn't matter anymore.
