    Re: 300mm lens 4x5" landscape

    I suspect the Horseman 150/300 converter will work with a similar construction 150mm lens. I'd call sharpness OK. It is perhaps as sharp as a 300mm plasmat. So, the results would be similar to a 4x5"...

    I have only made wetplates with sunlight. The only strobes I own won't be strong enough (camera mounted units). I'll let others that have tried this chime in here if this will work.

    How about a reflex viewer for the back. Seems like the number of steps to make a photograph would be the same.

    1) focus compose
    2) close shutter
    3) set aperture
