    Re: A question on FS rule enforcement

    So the lesson here is pretty clear. If you post in the classified section, you are of a lower status member and can expect to be treated as such.

    Re: explain like I'm 5......... 90mm lenses

    No. absolutely not. In fact when stopped down to f/8 or f/11, the 90mm f/6.8 Angulon is very sharp indeed. It is a very compact and light weight lens - a favorite of backpackers and Photo...

    Is it worth $200 ? Sounds like it might be a 45MX ? or 45 MCX ? If so, No. probably not worth $200...at least I would definitely not drop $200 on a Beseler.

  19. Re: Is there adequately protective flight case that can protect an ULF camera checked

    I use a pelican case....a big, bright yellow one - too big to carry on though. It has room for the 8x10 camera and two lenses mount on lens boards. Never have I had any issues or concerns.
  20. Re: Fumbling towards a correct exposure for Dry Plates

    100 = 2^6.644
    So, ASA100 is about 7 stops faster than ASA1 and about 6 stops faster than ASA2.
