    You have it all worked out!

    I should seriously think about following your lead. Over the years I’ve accumulated 49, 52, 67, as well as series V, VI, VII and VIII… and Bay60. I’ve yet to grab the...

    Well I guess I won’t write what I was going to write: the best part of Series VI is that there is a huge amount of filters still available, and not very expensive. More than any other series size it...

    Re: press-on lens shade for 203mm Ektar?

    I don’t have that exact lens but several similar. You need series filter SLIP-ON adapter. You’ll also need a retaining ring or hood to retain the series filters. My profound suggestion is that you...

    Why don’t you ask if someone will send you an 4x5 and 8x10 neg and print them however you intend. Demonstration of which is most suitable might be better than discussion… although discussion sure...

    Re: They say to start with 4x5, but...

    LF is a lot about slowing down. At the price you can’t machine-gun very much. Suggest you slow down right now and do some soul searching. What are you going to be shooting? How “portable” do you want...

    Decide on the basis of condition and cost. However you balance them. Otherwise, flip a coin… you’ll likely not see any difference.

    Nikkor had the reputation of being “more contrasty” than its...

    Sorry to ask a potentially ignorant question, but what is the difference. Can anyone please point me to pictures or a description of each? I'm quite sure I know what "normal" is but "sunk" has me...

    Cleaning and, oddly enough, greasing the head (damping grease) might fix it right up. That worked on my Bogen head when it started slipping.
  23. Re: How refurbish old Gitzo Rational PL-5 head so forward/back tilt locks solidly?

    Even centered and balanced, 30 lb probably exceeds the design spec. I can’t recall (and can’t find it easily on web) but I thought it was rated a lot less than 30 lb.

  31. Re: Precision and Accuracy in LF Photography: How much is enough?

    Yes, it works when the scene fits into the normal characteristics, “dynamic range, if you will allow that phrase, of the film. We absolutely agree. When the scene exceeds that or there is a desire...
