    Free documentation, not that I'm aware of. If your metering technique works well for you then I wouldn't bother changing it around. The zone system and I had a rocky relationship so I was in search...

    Fujinon T 400 on Intrepid 4x5

    Does anyone use a Fujinon T 400mm on an Intrepid 4x5? I'm wondering how stable it is on the front standard, and even though the camera should support it with bellows draw, does it?

    Thanks.
