    Re: Is this a Dallmeyer Perfac?

    Thank you! I did see the EE but I was unable to find anything based on it. This is helpful! Also, now I don't have to feel so sick for letting it pass by. :)

    There's a fair bit of information...

    Is this a Dallmeyer Perfac?

    A buddy saw this at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago (reduced to $35 bucks) and didn't buy it! I didn't see his text message until he was long gone... I knew it was big (too big for me...
  4. Re: Where should I begin? Interested in LF/Tintypes

    That was my primary motivation when I got started a few years ago. If you want to go headlong into it, I highly recommend John Coffer's "Doer's Guide", although I see the prices have gone up...

    Re: Focusing Cloth $12.99 at Target

    I'm quite content with my inverted black t-shirt. Significant light leakage doesn't seem to affect my focusing (that I'm aware of).
  6. Re: Loading film in the presence of "glow-in-the-dark" aperture scale...

    Seems like a silly feature to me. It's a really nice Fujinon-EX 135mm f/5.6, but I may need to let it go or paint over the scale, because I know it's going to drive me crazy having to remember to...
  7. Loading film in the presence of "glow-in-the-dark" aperture scale...

    I recently picked up a Durst S-45 from Don Dudenbostel, and I was just in the darkroom getting ready to load some film when I noticed that the aperture scale on one of the lenses glows in the dark. ...
  8. Re: Ultra large format camera build filmed in time lapse

    It is a 14 (by 11?) inch plate. I nearly wet myself when I read 14' as well, but it is admirably well-done and documented. Definitely worth a view, and thanks for sharing it with us, Thorley!

    Re: new LF camera owner

    I would say that a calumet board matching your camera is incredibly unlikely. You're going to need to measure your lens board and note whether or not it's got any rabbets or defining characteristics...
