  1. Re: Requirements and standards for HABS/HAER photography

    That reminds me of a quote I did to HAER photograph an old 1950s classified thing that was being demolished at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, it was also classified, and the week before the...
  2. Re: Requirements and standards for HABS/HAER photography

    Hi Kirk,
    I recently did a 5x7 job in downtown San Francisco on a reservoir that was also overkill. But once the mitigation language is written into the Memorandum of Understanding, there's no way...
  3. Re: How to shoot HABS/HAER projects without Polaroid or Fuji in 2020

    Hi Terry,

    Like Jason and Willie said, you could use a meter, but I haven't used my meter in five years. Since it's HABS/HAER, and you are being paid for the service, and you need to produce 20+...

    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    I got a 120mm "Wollason Meniscus lens" from Reinhold Schable in Washington. I'll send photos soon. It's a very simple clean setup. I need to mount on a Cambo board and experiment.

    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    No the edges can be wonky. It might be something that gets repurposed from 6x9 or 6x12 medium format. Or even a lens without a front or rear element that exhibits a certain funk.

    soft focus lens for architecture

    What's the widest soft lens for that covers 5x7? Or 4x5 with movement. I'm toying around with doing some photos that are the opposite of documentary HABS super-sharp, maximum depth work. I used to...

    Current Large Format Workshops 2020.

    Have you taken a Large Format camera workshop or know of one? I haven't taught one in a few years, and I'm just wondering if everyone's gone virtual/digital/youtube. (Tempting)

  11. Re: 4x5 & 5x7 Negatives - Camera Scanning with Nikon D800E

    Single photos, since the offline (old Mac) system is not color calibrated and all settings are zeroed, I choose from the three bracketed exposures back at the studio on the iMac Pro in Lightroom...

  13. Re: Pens for marking or numbering film negatives - HABS & HAER guidance 2020.

  14. Pens for marking or numbering film negatives - HABS & HAER guidance 2020.

  15. Re: Likely Very Naive Question, sheet film then scan to produce a digital print.

    Indeed, to Sal's point on page 1.



    I do HABS/HAER/HALS and digital scanning is in the guidelines. So those (few) HABS photographers have a choice of contact prints or scans and "digital print...

    I took a column from a Beseler slide duplicator and added a...

    Re: Fuji 240-A f9 for 8x10

    I recently did a HABS project on 5x7 and found that my 240mm f9 Fujinon A (silver-ring, Copal 0 shutter, serial #521594) does get unsharp around the outer edges of the image circle. I'd say about and...

  21. Re: You (Yes, You) Should Donate to the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS)

    Willie,
    They aren’t asking.
    The National Park Service has been running HABS since 1933 without expecting work for nothing. I just think it’s good they are allowing talented photographers to share...
  22. Re: You (Yes, You) Should Donate to the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS)

    Dave, I’m sure if you can expose film, have a 4x5 and can make a contact print you can do this HHH stuff. The point of my post was to invite curious photographers to try. The guidelines are long but...

    Field Camera Wide angle issues

    One thing to keep in mind (for people finding this thread in the future) is that wide angle lenses are very unforgiving from an alignment and focus standpoint; less than 1mm makes a difference. As...
  25. Re: Wista VX or Linhof Master for 72mm to 240mm architecture.

    I'm just going to build one. I'll post photos of the Frankencamera when it's done. Inspired by the Walker titan with Cambo guts and a Horseman 'L' geared front standard.
    I decided I didn't care if...
  26. Re: Toyo 45A 45AII 45AX and 45CF Resource/Fan Page

    Yep, sorry it is 92.5mm between the masking clips when viewed.

    I'm going to assume we are looking at the spring-back GG frame horizontally and the sides are short and the top and bottom are long....
  27. Re: Toyo 45A 45AII 45AX and 45CF Resource/Fan Page

    Toyo CF. More measuring today.

    Again the exposed part of my ground glass is 122.5mm x 92.5mm (edited) so I'm not sure that is showing me the entire 4x5 film area at 100% or if it is a 95% view....
  28. Re: Wista VX or Linhof Master for 72mm to 240mm architecture.

    Is this something that required you to pull out the rear standard for enough flange distance or can you accomplish 90mm infinity focus with the rear tight to the body?
  29. Re: Wista VX or Linhof Master for 72mm to 240mm architecture.

    And I was just in Inverness last year. Always too early, or too late.
    I could see the advantage of the top tripod thread in Scotland... the bed makes a nice roof to keep the rain off the lens. ;-)

  31. Re: Wista LX & Linhof Technika front rise at 90mm

    Yes I have about 6 Cambos (wanna buy one?) and this year I shot 1614 sheets of 4x5 and 5x7 film, only about 150 sheets were exposed on my Toyo CF in exotic places like Guam and Idaho. I like to take...
  32. Re: Wista LX & Linhof Technika front rise at 90mm

    Bob - no wonder I can't figur it out. ;-) I don't believe there is a Porsche or Ferrari LX either
  33. Re: Toyo 45A 45AII 45AX and 45CF Resource/Fan Page

    Just a FYI,

    I was doing some measuring on my Toyo CF tonight.
    With the Toyo CF, the front standard is about one inch away from the carbon fiber body when a 90mm (flat board) is focused at...
  34. Wista LX & Linhof Technika front rise at 90mm

    As always, since I can't just rent a Linhoff Technika 2000 non-rangefinder (which is the model I'm partial to)
    And I can't rent a late model Wista LX either, I need to base a lot of things that...
  35. Re: A vote for the Wistas

    I will be selling the CF. New Toyo OEM bellows from MAC group, body is well used, Bossscreen GG, 4 lensboards, original box, bought used from B&H 15 months ago.

    Can someone with a Wista SP or VX...
  36. Re: Wista VX or Linhof Master for 72mm to 240mm architecture.

    Yeah, I had a Technikardan in 1989, should never have sold it. The clamshell of the Toyo CF, Wista, Linhof technika is appealing from a travel point of view. This will only be used 10% of the time...
  37. Wista VX or Linhof Master for 72mm to 240mm architecture.

    I am considering selling my Toyo CF for a Wista VX or a newer 4x5 Linhof metal field camera.
    I will be using lenses between 72mm and 240mm for architectural subjects. Mostly my 90mm, 120mm and 135mm...
