  1. Re: Designing a studio space for natural light portraiture

    Monty, one thing you may need to take into account in your studio design is your latitude. I suspect the split between roof-based and side-based windows will be very different in North Carolina and...

    The link robphoto posted brings you to the August 1998 spec sheet, which covers the newer version lenses and shows 60mm front and 57mm rear push-on caps. The older Dagor-type 270 Tracy mentioned...

    Treadlite, perhaps?
  6. Re: Zone VI Compensating Developer Timer footswitch issue

    Richard, in the McMaster-Carr catalog it says only that some of the footswitches have "quick connects" but it doesn't say what kind. Do you recall if the parts Zone VI used specifically said RJ-11?

  9. Re: Longest focal length telephoto lens with bellows draw under 300 mm

    I forgot to mention the Congo (Osaka) 400mm f/8. Compared to the Fujinon, it's about the same size, has a slightly shorter flange focal length, and weighs 150gm (almost 6oz) less. Coverage is less...
  10. Re: Longest focal length telephoto lens with bellows draw under 300 mm

    The 500mm f/9.5 Tele-Congo has a 287mm flange focal length according to my notes, which would give you a closest focus of around 20 feet or so without an extended lens board. It just covers 4x5...
  11. Re: Print Washers, again. Interested in the 'tray type'.

    It's probably not the kind of plumbed tray you're considering, but I used to use a Kostiner flat tray washer. It has little jets all around and is a bit over 16x20 inside. There's no way to...

    Very nice. What do you use for the cone? I thought the Fujinon-L was a Tessar - does it cover 8x10?

    Re: Favorite Current 8x10 B&W Film?

    Consider TMAX400 (TMY) if you intend to do any alt-process printing that requires UV exposure. Because it has no UV-blocking your print exposures will be much shorter than with other films. Yes,...
  14. Re: Fitting Graphic-Kowa 210mm F9 in Copal 1

    Not all 210mm f/9 Graphic Kowa cells will fit a Copal 1. I have a recollection that some versions don't allow removal of one of the cells (rear, I think, but I'm not sure). And I could be wrong. ...

  25. Re: Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    I have a 400mm f/8 Osaka (same as Congo, just a store brand for Bromwell Camera). Optically it is slightly worse than a 400mm Fujinon-T when viewing 11x14 enlargements with a loupe, but it's also...

    The 300mm Fujinon-T is not exactly a lightweight - the one I used to own weighed 484gm (compared to 632gm for the 400mm Fujinon-T and 285gm for the holy grail 450mm Fujinon-C). I sold it because a...
