  1. Re: Schneider Super Angulon 72mm XL - filter conundrum

    I am not a physicist. In practice, I find the outer edge of the Image Circle on the 72XL grows a little when I stop down. And the filters I use at the edge of the mechanical vignette at full rise or...
  2. Re: Schneider Super Angulon 72mm XL - filter conundrum

    How does that work? Are you saying if you use a small hole you only use the middle of the glass?
  3. Re: iPhone - smartphone - scanning of 4x5 and 5x7 negatives.

    I use PS mobile to invert the image if I want to see it on the phone, I just set up a 'theme' that inverts. I have started to use the Tech Camera app to capture the negative as a grayscale DNG and...
  4. Re: Schneider Super Angulon 72mm XL - Lee and Benro filter holders

    I used the Lee holder you reference on hundreds of photos until the markings of my 72XL started to wear off. (Not really a problem but an annoyance, since the Lee holder mounts with a tension ring...

  6. Re: HOW TO Load Film Holders. A tutorial video for beginners.

    This is an interesting subject. I have never used the raised dots, because I set up my film loading area in the light room. Does anyone use the raised dots on a regular basis instead of in theory? I...

    True, but if you're just starting out and can't take a class, it's nice to see the unseen.

  9. FILM HOLDERS: Care and feeding, tips and techniques

    On camera, I use a "11"inch tablet/reader" pouch with a loop sewn on the corner that holds three holders while I compose and focus. This keeps the holder in darkness, out of direct sun while I take...

  11. Re: HOW TO Load Film Holders. A tutorial video for beginners.

    That is correct. I was taught that at school too.

    But the label color is arbitrary: the slide and film don't care. Since I didn't apprentice with any 4x5 shooters, the tradition hadn't been...

  13. Re: 4x5 & 5x7 Negatives - Camera Scanning with Nikon D800E

    I may not have mentioned at the start, that the trick with scanning my 4x5 and 5x7 HABS negatives (the ones that get submitted to the Library of Congress) is that the entire negative and rebate edge...
  14. Re: 4x5 & 5x7 Negatives - Camera Scanning with Nikon D800E

    Interesting techniques. It looks like my notice/subscription to this thread got turned off so I haven't seen the last few posts until today when I posted a new thread on iPhone quick-scanning in a...
  15. iPhone - smartphone - scanning of 4x5 and 5x7 negatives.

    I thought I'd start a thread about scanning negatives with a phone camera. I have an iPhone 13 Pro and the Macro mode seems to leverage the extra wide lens and has good sharpness in the center but...

    Re: A camera-themed HABS image

    This is a great HABS image by Marvin Rand he did around 36+ surveys for HABS. There are HABS images by Julius Shulman (LA City Hall) and even Balthazar Korab but their names are not always keyword...
  18. Re: Cambo 4x5...how to know how wide you can go

    Adam, your camera has a rotating 4x5 back that adds to the distance inside the camera. If you get the non-rotating 4x5 back you'll gain a few millimeters. Bag bellows will definitely help. If you...

    Here's my heavily modified HABS-HAER-HALS camera with a front standard that utilizes the NEW-style double lock knob on the side and the shift lock from an even older 1960s era SuperCambo with the...

  21. Re: Cambo 4x5...how to know how wide you can go

    OR you can go wider if... you can get your hands on the OLD Cambo "double lock" standards.

    That's what I have on my 4x5/5x7 Cambo custom HABS camera. Since a large proportion of HABS/HAER...

  24. Re: 4x5 & 5x7 Negatives - Camera Scanning with Nikon D800E

    Glad you liked it. It works well for me and it's very fast compared to scanning on a flatbed. I'm sure there is a point where a scanner would show a better result, but I imagine that is somewhere...
  25. Re: Requirements and standards for HABS/HAER photography

    Hi Terry,

    Like Jason and Willie said, you could use a meter, but I haven't used my meter in five years. Since it's HABS/HAER, and you are being paid for the service, and you need to produce 20+...

    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    I got a 120mm "Wollason Meniscus lens" from Reinhold Schable in Washington. I'll send photos soon. It's a very simple clean setup. I need to mount on a Cambo board and experiment.

    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    No the edges can be wonky. It might be something that gets repurposed from 6x9 or 6x12 medium format. Or even a lens without a front or rear element that exhibits a certain funk.

    What's the widest soft lens for that covers 5x7? Or 4x5 with movement. I'm toying around with doing some photos that are the opposite of documentary HABS super-sharp, maximum depth work. I used to...
