    Re: Photographs of Historic Buildings

    Neat. I like the way your photograph shows the grounds in context to their surroundings.

    What a neat assignment.
  3. Re: How do I recognize lenses that will cover an 8X10 plate with no vignetting

    The table is good; but, it's focused on modern lenses. There are many other lenses known by reputation to cover 8x10 or larger formats.

    For example, a Fujinon 250mm f6.7 covers 8x10 with decent...

    Re: Lousy Dagor

    Exactly!

    I had a Goerz American Optical Co. 7" f6.8 factory coated Dagor for a while, and it was extremely sharp. I photographed Big Sur with that lens, and the resulting image is stunning. Just...
  6. Re: A quick comparison of three 135mm 4x5 lenses

    None of them!

    In my opinion, a 135mm lens is the least desirable focal length of any lens for a 4x5 camera. It has relatively little room for movements, and at best, it's a wanabe "wide" angle...

    Re: Lightweight 6x9 Wide-Camera

    There's always the possibility of using a Mamiya Press camera with a Mamiya Press 50mm lens. It covers 6x9. They come with a viewer that fits right on top of the camera. It has paralax correction,...

    I enjoyed Fargo; I've watched it often enough. It had some violence. But the mid-western humor helped to balance that out. What do ya think 'bout that. Hmm?
  10. Re: Hinge the window on the top or the side - or does it matter?

    Given the expense these days of museum board, I overmat only when framing an image. I no longer overmat for displaying an unframed photo. I also mount on two-ply.

    Re: shutters compatible with 7" Dagor?

    You can get cork that's just the right thickness. I just purchased some from our local Ace Hardware. They sell it for people to make their own gaskets. It comes in small rolls about 12" long.
