  1. Re: Opinion: Would a 90mm f8 or f6.8 lens be too dark for dawn and dusk landscape?

    Create your own infinity stops and shoot at f/16. All you need is a flashlight to set your focus at the infinity stop (or other preset hyperfocal distance) and set the f stop and you're done.
  2. Re: Does a new luxury 8x10 camera make sense in 2021?

    By their definition, the terms "luxury" and "sense" as in "sensible" are opposing terms. So no, it does not make sense, but when has that stopped anyone...
  3. Re: More detail from internegative or digital negative ?

    If you want to make an 8x10 contact print on glossy paper, then an internegative may have higher resolution and acutance, but it is a more difficult process to get a perfect internegative. On the...

  5. Re: How to keep film ending up wrong side of dark slide after exposing

    Pulling and reinserting the dark slide is not the best way to check, so I am offering a better check on film loading.
  6. Re: How to keep film ending up wrong side of dark slide after exposing

    Quadruple checking while loading is my approach. First double check is when I think the film is under both side rails, but before sliding the sheet the rest of the way in, I try to lift the film at...

  12. Re: Which Camera is Thomas Struth using here - please advice

    Pining for a particular camera (and lens) that another photographer uses is a waste of time. Analyze what kind of camera and lens that you want (and why), then see what is available. Keith Canham...
  13. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    I say the medium can enhance the effect of the image, but is not the sole factor. I've seen plenty of ugly images created in every possible medium.

    Re: A quick comparison of three 135mm 4x5 lenses

    I think shooting all of them at near wide open, like f/5.6 would have been more interesting to see things like how out of focus areas look, possible distortion, etc.
  17. Re: Bought a nice Linhof Master Technika Classic. Can I do the CLA myself to save mon

    No, you did not buy a "nice Linhof Master Technika Classic" - you got one with serious problems which should have been disclosed prior to the sale. I would return it and shop wisely next time.

    Re: 4x5 sheets with a white "triangle"

    Not a lens problem. You have fogging of the film from light leaking around a badly seated bellows or lensboard perhaps.
