  2. Re: Kit recommendations for a complete beginner

    You can start with what is considered a wreck and learn a lot of LF reconstruction which I personally consider tragedy, or begin anew which commits you the real practice of LF photography right away....

    Re: Ventilation specs for darkroom

    One question concerns how far we need to move the air - is push or pull or a combination of both better and under what circumstances?

    Re: Preferred Format, and why?

    Lately I have reverted to Plaubel Veriwide 100, a true 55mm x 90mm, and post-wwii Super Ikonta 55 x 4.5cm, 531 (i think).Reason: Life is short and these two cameras fit my aesthetic and life-time...
  5. Re: Wista 45 RF... or alternative for handheld RF work at open aperture?

    I am, for better or worse, a Linhof Super Technika chauvinist. Mine is a model V. Due to a handicap I use a right-hand anatomical grip w/release as well as the left grip w/o release. For handheld RF...

    What rendering differences can we expect between copy lenses and general purpose lenses in the field?
  7. Re: Which lenses fold up into your field camera? Linhof Tecnika, Horseman, etc. quest

    This might not be helpful, but my Super Technika set is entirely satisfied with three lenses, each with its cam numbers matched to the lens and camera serial number. I hope you have the same good...
  8. Re: Which lenses fold up into your field camera? Linhof Tecnika, Horseman, etc. quest

    In my experience the 135mm Planar ƒ3.5 V1 on its standard board just barely folds up in the Super Technika V. The fit is so close that one cannot fit a lens cap or filter over the lens. Most of us...

    Re: Schneideritis

    The white artifacts seem to be where the painted lens mount touches a lens rear surface. It has little or nothing to do with image forming across the whole image.

    Re: A refrigerator for storage

    The vernacular for freezer and refrigerator does not always depict the profound differences. As a rule shop by specifications. From Kodak.
  13. Re: Linhof Technika's wide angle focusing device broken

    Make a whole replacement part. The plastic knob is probably attached to a standard metric-size shaft. Knobs are common, too. If you are in the USA, I suggest you drop by Ace Hardware and show it to...

  17. Re: Seeking Advice for 4x5 Handheld Camera

    Yes, Dan, it is limited in my experience to a ~127 mm lens. Limiting implies not schlepping two or more lenses which obviously adds weight. Less is good. Should I find a scale I will weight it then...
  18. Re: First Post! - How Do I Measure My Bellows Extension To Calculate Bellows Exposure

    All I know is outcomes. Later Biogons in my typical applications work so very well in managing distortion and fall-off while SA lenses strive to be more and fail. I enjoy living within the later...
  19. Re: First Post! - How Do I Measure My Bellows Extension To Calculate Bellows Exposure

    Bellows factor is unlikely to be the most significant point-of-failure in technique. Get a ballpark figure and work backwards. Composition considering light, interpreting fundamental exposure,...

    Not necessarily; in my modest experience the 1/4" is just fine if you have two proper mating surfaces which actually bear most of the fastening.

    A good start. Next point to the many conversions from survey tripods to our LF applications and it will be complete. I will try to photograph my own.
