  1. Re: How Large Can I Print a 4x5 Drum-Scanned Negative Before The Resolution Degrades?

    Thank you for the comparison to Höfer, that's a huge compliment.

    For most of the work on my website I used a multiple row, high dynamic range focused stacked process shot on a full frame DSLR with...
  2. Re: How Large Can I Print a 4x5 Drum-Scanned Negative Before The Resolution Degrades?

    This is not that easy to answer as it involves a lot of variables that that depend both on the original 4x5 and the scanner/operator. “Resolution Degrading” is subjective as well, what you consider...

    So let me say from the start that I own a LOT of bags/backpacks. Lowepro, ThinkTank, Mindshift, Domke, Tamarac and a bunch of others. Even a custom made one. Between large format, digital and the...

    Re: Printing on Epson Hot Press Bright

    Optical brighteners will eventually fade, it depends on the manufacturer as to how fast. Even the ones that fade the quickest would take years to degrade. It is a point of contention in the industry...

    Try Canson Platine Fibre Rag. As with any paper the printer and profile you are using make a huge difference in your results.

    I think you need to approach this from a perspective of finding a good paper first and then making it work in a book. Also look for different binding options, like Swiss binding in order to stress...

    Re: 4x5 with 4x10 camera?

    It would be expensive (even used) but K.B. Canham makes 4x10 cameras. You could probably get a kit based on his 4x5 and 5x7 platform that would shoot both 4x5 and 4x10. Like I said, it would be a lot...
  11. Re: Spacers of Sinaron W 90/4.5 DB mount, for the same lens in Copal#1 ?

    Not that it is necessarily concrete proof of whether spacers were used or not in the Sinaron W 90mm f/4.5 (I bought this lens used) but I just checked mine and it has no spacers installed in it.

    I have the IPF 9400 as well. You should download the Canon interface that you run from Photoshop. It gives you a lot more options to bring out the full capabilities of your printer. I...

    While true Schneider did make the Super Angulon XL 38mm. It has an image circle listed by Schneider of 137mm at f/22. While that does not cover the 4x5 format I have always found Schneider's...

  24. Re: What to get: PS, Affinity, GIMP, ON1, other?

    The reason is that as you grow and expand as a photographer you never know the things you are usually trying to accomplish. You can't always predict what you will be doing as an artist a few years...
  25. Re: What to get: PS, Affinity, GIMP, ON1, other?

  34. Re: Where to start? Is it too late to start? Beginner seeking advice.

  37. Re: Where to start? Is it too late to start? Beginner seeking advice.

    You don't learn large format on 8x10. You always start on 4x5. You can still get amazing results and EVERYTHING is cheaper. Once you master most of the basics of 4x5 you can consider 8x10 but you may...
