  3. Poll: Re: Gauging interest in scanning service based on DT Cultural Heritage Phase One syst

    Your anticipated pricing per scan is certainly reasonable compared to any drum scanning service, but I'd have to see some results before I committed to the process.
  4. Re: COMPARISON: Fujinon W 250mm f6.7 & Fujinon A 240 f9

    I own both of those lenses and use them regularly on both 4x5 and 8x10. In terms of overall performance, sharpness, etc, IMO it would be tough to see any difference between these two optics in any...
  5. Re: Fujichrome Velvia 50, 4x5 sheet film

    Check with Kumar (search for him on these boards) and see if he's still handling it. Or, you might be able to buy it directly from Amazon Japan. I've done both in the past, but it has been a long...

    Re: Monorail vs. Folding Camera Weight

    Monorails are not necessarily heavier than folding 4x5's. For example, my Arca-Swiss F line weighs in at about the same weight as a Zone VI 4x5; it's actually lighter than a Wisner Technical 4x5....
  7. Re: landscape infintity focus: what aperture do you prefer or use?

    If DOF isn't a consideration, I use all my lenses at what I feel is their optimum aperture; typically, a couple of stops down from wide open. For 4x5, I will generally use F/16 or F/22 when deep DOF...

  19. Re: Is the rail on a Arca Swiss camera, the same as RRS parts? Are they interchangea

    As already mentioned, the major issue is the gearing along the top of the rail whereby the standards move for focusing. I'm sure the rails can vary a bit, as Neil pointed out, but I have an Oswald...

    I know Richard Ritter (www.lg4mat.net) has done some work on Zone VI branded Pentax meters, but don't know if he works on any other meters. Might want to check with him; calling is best.

    Re: how large (or small) are your prints?

    Size of print seems to be directly related to what size film I'm printing: 5x7 for 35mm, up to 10x13 for MF and 4x5, contact prints for 8x10. But, overall, I rarely print beyond about 8x10.
