    Intrepid 4x5" MK4.
  2. Re: Over the years - sheet film holders question - your most preferred and maintenanc

    Fidelity plastic ones (not sure what the difference is between Elite and Deluxe?) for both 5x7" and 8x10". They're lighter than wooden ones and much less likely to have stiff darkslides and I also...
  3. Re: Wide Lenses for 4x5 & 8x10: 90mm to 165mm

    A little outside your range but a Fujinon 180mm "inside lettering" will cover 8x10" nicely and is a great focal length in both formats in my opinion.
  4. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

  5. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    The crucial difference here is that on the D-side people are trying to find the better image science because once you buy a camera, you're stuck with it. On analog you can switch between them from...
  6. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Sorry but there is simply a Fuji "colour science" that is fundamentally different to Kodak and therefore Portra - while a fine film in its own right - will never replace Pro 400H or 160NS. Ektar is...
  7. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Hardly unexpected, but still a sad day. It's a cruel joke the the press release states there is no replacement for 160NS yet offers up Velvia 100 as a replacement for Velvia 50 - these two emulsions...

    Re: Why no 180mm's for 8x10?

    True but it's got to be the one with the writing on the inside of the barrel, the other one has a smaller image circle and doesn't cover at infinity.

    Re: Velvia 100 discontinued in the US

    No great loss, Velvia 50 is the real Velvia anyway - just a shame that it has to be imported from Japan.

    For someone based in the U.S. that's true but if importing the film (like me), can be cheaper, e.g. there is ADOX CHS at 6.50 euro per sheet.



    Yes it was a gross generalisation but the point I...

    Looking at the GG, sure. Once the dark slide is pulled - not so much. I like poker and sometimes you just have to play it with your Tachihara! I lose more often than not but I don't mind that.
