    Re: nice new lens, but sticky shutter

    Needs cleaning and all will be well. Someone like Carol Flutot can sort that for you.
  3. Re: What is the Most Difficult Large Format Photography

    Wind. I live in Southern Alberta - very windy at times. Had to rebuild my 5 x 12 last year when I took my hand for a second to reach something and it went over.

    Re: tank for 5x12

    I use the 3005 which is designed for 8 x 10 or 5 x 7. The 5 x 12 film sticks out but there is room under the top. It all works fine with conventional film but with x-ray, I use at least a 5 minute...

    Re: 5x7 Elwood enlarger lens board

    They are not hard to make. Find the right thickness of plywood or MDF. It is about 3/8" . Cut a rebate or rabbet at one end, drill a hole the right size and there you are.
