  1. Re: Source for String-Wound Filter Replacements?

    Emailed Leedal and they got right back to me! Cannot believe that I waited this long to change filters...assuming that these specific ones were hard to get - and now I'll be really P.O'd if all...
  2. Re: Source for String-Wound Filter Replacements?

    But seriously...thanks! I somehow thought they'd gone out of business. No product links on their site...but I will give them a call!
  3. Source for String-Wound Filter Replacements?

    I've had a "contact me when available" order into B+H for these forever so have given up on them for this...do does anyone here know how I might get my hands on a couple of string-wound, 5-micron...
  4. Re: Help me choose a camera to hike 2000+ miles

    Would it be possible for you to do a "dry run" of perhaps a few days to vet out possible logistical hassles with LF gear? Just saying...that multiple days out on the trail with LF gear in variable...

    I got horribly scammed many years ago (early 1980's), as did quite a few others...by a fake business calling themselves "Studio 21," which took advantage of an apparent loophole made possible when...

    Hint for Dry Mounting Oversized Work

    Here is a hint I'd like to pass along about dry mounting...which is to have or create a flat, clean surface - preferably at least as large as the overall mat board dimensions - raised to the exact...

    Re: Fiber based paper thoughts

    I love my Seal Masterpiece 500-T. Picked it up six years ago from a guy who'd just gone out of business - but he'd recently purchased it as a replacement so its in great shape, and a steal for 200...

  24. Re: Rodenstock 90mm 4.5 Grandagon-N questions

    90 6.8 Grandagon-N (multicoated) here....love it! Great performance...compact...covers 5x7 just fine! Surprised that this lens does not seem to grab the amount of attention that other 90's do.
  25. Re: Merering: Spot Metering, Reflective, Gray Card, Average

    Shadow areas which you'd like to record with some detail should typically be placed on zone 3 or very close to this. After this it is basically good to meter the highest highlight value for which...
