    Re: New Ultra-Light Chamonix 810 Camera

    Nice video. I have an 11x14 Chamonix, which looks a lot like an enlarged 8x10 Alpinist. The 11x14 weighs similar to my Zone VI 8x10...larger 'package' of course.

    Nicely thought out -- the...

    Agree. That is what I meant be needing 'to pay a little more attention'. Not a whole bunch more, and all part of the basic photographic process.

    And being the lazy sort, I prefer to put some a...

    Re: Sunny !6 Users Unite!

    I tailor the contrast of each negative to the alt printing process to be used, so I need to pay a little more attention to such things. An idiot perhaps, but no hero. :cool:

    Of my 5x7 holders, I have a couple of these older holders that give me such a wonderful rebate. I should look at my records and see exactly which holders give me this rebate...I have been letting it...

    Once I get out from under the Redwoods I am always surprised how consistent light meter readings are. So for open landscapes, I could probably survive on Sunny 16 or Sunny 11, depending on how the...
  6. Re: 4x5 without a backpack for the beginner, non-trekker, etc.

    Nice set-up!

    Another way is to keep the camera on the tripod and over one's shoulder, and operate out of a shoulder bag big enough for holders, meter and needed stuff. I do it for 4x5 and 5x7. My...

    Re: Discussion on Tripod Heads for 8x10

    I use a Ries A100 with the 250 head for both 8x10 and 11x14. A touch over-kill perhaps for the first, but not for the 11x14. I am not backpacking with these cameras, so the weight of the head is not...

    Well, making anything 100% fool-proof only tempts nature to make more foolish fools.

    I should -- handy for pulling back and securing branches that are 'getting in the way' of the camera's view in the forest. Usually just hand-holding them back is enough, though.

    Those cam handles can break if excessive force is used. One of the reasons these cameras were not successful as loaners to students where I worked.
