  1. Re: the thread for Kodak XTOL quality control issues

    Tangential to this thread, but the ultra-short version: Alaris was not a pre-existing company. It was created from scratch during Eastman Kodak's 2012 bankruptcy as part of the settlement of EK's...

    Re: Instant Film

    I've shot a lot of Instax, both color and monochrome. It's so wildly different from color and B&W negative films that I don't think there's much to be gained by using it for tests. Both types of...

  7. Re: Looking for 5x7 macro lens recommendation

    Mike, if you're looking at process lenses, the 150 mm Computar will also easily cover 5x7 in close work. I use mine, stopped way down, as a wide for non-close work with whole plate.
  8. Re: Looking for 5x7 macro lens recommendation

    120 mm Makro-Symmar HM

    Also, for completeness, full names for the others I mentioned:

    120 mm Apo-Macro-Sironar
    120 mm Nikkor-AM ED
  9. Re: Looking for 5x7 macro lens recommendation

    Nikon, Rodenstock and Schneider all offered 120mm macro lenses that, per specification, comfortably cover 5x7 at 1:1.

    They don't say, so I guess I'd first try whatever dealer you use for the regular annual ULF order, if you've done that. I see that Fred Newman has put up a notice on his website.

    IIRC our own Monty McCutchen shoots as large as 20x24, though not sure how much of that is film vs wet plate. Why not ask him?
