  1. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    I find this too broad of a statement. If you’re doing product photography, maybe (not even). But say in landscape photography for example, portraiture, or documentary/street photography, color...
  2. Opinion: Would a 90mm f8 or f6.8 lens be too dark for dawn and dusk landscape?

    Let’s see…. Yes I find F8 too dark to focus reliably in low light conditions. F5.6 is much better. I don’t typically use many f6.8 lenses in those situations. And I have a good and bright fresnel.

  3. Re: Anyone own Dallmeyer 3A waterhouse stops? Aperture size help needed

    Hmmmm… all these seem to indicate that the focal length is around 350mm, not 400mm?

    Re: Fuji 90mm f8 SW or Nikon 90mm f8 SW

    The Nikkor has a slightly larger image circle (235mm vs 216mm) that would cover 5x7 with almost no movement. If you’re thinking you may go there, get the Nikon. Otherwise just pick based on price and...

  12. Re: Does a new luxury 8x10 camera make sense in 2021?

    Direct price is between 5,190 and 6,812 Euros, depending on frame and bellows color… pretty comparable since 5,190 Euros is about 6,000 USD.

    The SP-810 is really great for b&w. The only drawback is that you can only process 1 8x10 at a time, which is kind of slow. I keep two of them running in parallel to halve the time when I have...
