    Re: How to learn a type of film?

    What are your goals?

    Will you be printing your negatives in the darkroom, or scanning for some other form of output?

    Re: modern 360mm lens for 11x14

    As mentioned, the 355 G-Claron has monster coverage, at least when stopped way down. I've used the 360 Apo-Symmar on 11x14 - the image circle is large enough to allow decent room for movement. Note...

  6. Re: Which used digital camera to shoot images of my prints??

    What Peter said. For $200, if you shop carefully, you might *just* be able to find an early-model APS-C DSLR with a 50mm prime lens or an entry-level kit zoom, in decent condition. It should also...

    35mm, 120 and sheet film are coated on different bases, hence different master rolls. 35 and 120 are generally coated on cellulose acetate, but the 120 base in thinner. Sheet film is generally...

  21. Re: so, do you guys consider my 6x9 to be "large format"?

    By chance the first LF camera I had the opportunity to use on my own was an 8x10, so my perception of LF sizes was warped from the get-go - 4x5 has always seemed small to me. :)

    Commonly accepted definitions base large format photography on 4"x5" and larger sheet film (or the 9x12 cm metric equivalent), regardless of the style of camera being used. This is the definition we...
