  1. Re: What's considered "high altitude" when it comes to UV filters?

    How high is high? Good question. Tucson is around 2700 feet, which in and of itself isn't so high, but the amount of water vapor in the air can be really low - I think it's the skin capital center of...
  2. Re: Help in ID'ing Japanese 5X7 Wood Camera

    Pictures would help a lot - is anything on the camera written in Japanese? If so I could probably figure it out.

    You should put them on the wall. At our ages it can't possibly hurt anything - whoops, maybe something WOULD hurt.

    Re: Xenar 135mm f4.7 lens opinion

    This one is definitely not "Apo"

    Nice lens nevertheless depending on the result you're after. Sharpness/contrast isn't always the right metric for a given image.

    I have a 360 TeleXenar that I also think is somewhat less contrasty than (for example) the Nikkor 360 - 500- 720 set. Makes a nice photo but not sharp enough to "cut your eye" by any means. Not smart...
