  1. Re: Hi : )!!! - Please suggest me GPC flatbed scanner

    Look for an Epson 4990.
    Pretty reliable, decent scans up to 8x10 film and not too expensive on the used market.

    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    Taking me a while to get used to the GFX, but it's all coming together... very slowly.
    Here's a shot in 7:6 format, or 6:7. Or 1:1.166. Or 1.166:1.
    Vatever.

    Re: Cameras with geared swing movement

    Some Wista models have micro-swing on the rear, but they are limited in their use as architectural cameras.
    I'm afraid Bob's right: more gears is more weight.
