  1. Re: Filter size and thread pitch for Schneider Xenar 150mm f/3.5

    I can't answer your question directly. However, 40.5mm filters do exist, and the threads on filters are tapered. A standard filter should screw on by a couple of turns and hold in place, in a...
  2. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    That is the crux of the matter. When is it time to let go? All I can say is that I'm not there yet.

    Re: How do you tell the size

    I have 3 identical-looking small petzvals that range from 6" to 12" EFL. I can't tell them apart, I have to keep tags on them.
  4. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    This has been my view on lenses especially for some years. We do not own these lenses, we are merely caretakers and we need to diligently preserve them for posterity. I also think we should pass...
  5. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    Corollary: LF since then is performance art, for the most part.

    Witness the exodus of a number of photographers from this site, leaving mostly hobbyists and some digital shooters dealing with...

    Re: Exposure compensation for small apertures

    The reason for the exposure compensation at small apertures vs. wide open is clear when using fast shutter speeds, what interests me is the other factor which is increased depth of field at fastest...
  8. Re: which Spot lightmeter for field use (dead Spotmeter V) ?

    The Pentax V is a great meter, you can't go wrong. And if the new one breaks, buy another. I have bought and sold many lightmeters over the years, but I have never even considered selling my Pentax...

  10. Re: 8 x 10 Field Camera with the largest amount of front "fall"?

    If this is the goal, any 8x10 field camera will do. Simply take out the ground glass and install an 8"x10" 'lens board', replace the original lens board with a piece of white foam core, and shoot...

    Re: modern 360mm lens for 11x14

    There's also the Symmar and Symmar-S 360mm, similar to the other f5.6 plasmats but likely cheaper. I bought a convertible 360 Symmar on this forum not so long ago for a reasonable price. If...

    Re: eliminate duplicates from hard drives

  13. Re: Shutter Speed... Flash... What Difference Does It Make?

    I've always done the opposite. But then I rarely shoot in studio, when you're outside you can't overpower the sun with your flash even on a cloudy day. Then I see wedding photogs working outside...

  36. Re: Getting the correct lens settings for a synced strobe?
