    Re: Morning at the golf course

    I seem to always see in panoramic format. I see two very nice images here - one above and one below a horizontal line drawn at the lower edge of the lake.

    I have had mine for about 3 years, and still despise the rear swings. They screw up everything I have done for over 80 years.

    I have one and have often thought of reducing the weight via a 1"drill bit. Then I decide the extra 1.5lb isn't that much.

    I like the fall-off from using the "too short" 305mm on 8x10. Great work.

    Re: orthochromatic film?

    I have been using orthochromatic film since 1938.

  24. Re: Focal Lengths with movements for Tachihara 4x5

    Look for lenses in good shutters in the 150mm-210mm range. If you want a wider view go to 90mm.

    Tin Can is correct. The film speed varies with the season, time of day, clouds, clearness of atmosphere. If you determine an EI (not ISO as that never changes) to be 100 between 10 am and 2 pm in...

    Re: Flood lights for contact printing

    A 100 watt bulb will do the job. Just move it 1/3 closer, and perhaps use a longer printing time. Also, enlarging bulbs should still be available, and a #3 is 150 watt, I believe.
  29. Re: AGFA Chronex medical film: What should I rate this?

    Since it was competitor of Ektascan, I would start my trial at EI 100, and develop by inspection.
