    In the early 50s I took an interest in IR photography, motivated by an article in Popular Photography (?) about Weegee. The GE 5 and the Sylvania 25 were identical small bulbs with identical guide...

    Re: Linhof help needed

    Thanks for the update, Bob. My Linhof Camera Story does not mention a successor to the type V. I have to ask: was there also a 23a that preceded the 23b. 23b seems like a strange designation if there...

    Re: Mini speed graphic 2x3 questions.

    Bear in mind, however, that it takes longer than 1/1000 of a second for the narrow slit to travel across the film. This 1/1000 only indicates the duration of exposure at a given point on the film.

    Where did you find a stack of color infrared in LF sheets? As far as I know it was only available in 35mm for many years until it was discontinued. This must have been many, many years ago.
