    Re: KEH Question

    I've bought mostly bargain stuff from KEH, the most expensive being a pentax LX camera - the exterior is rough, but everything works find except for light leaks, changed seals myself and now I have a...
  2. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    I don't anticipate going on multi-day hikes (sadly), but a smaller frame pack might be the best choice for a solid day of hard travel with Norma. I'll find out soon, thanks for the ideas! 10 days...
  3. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks Jnantz, I found and article about the RPT P3 photobackpacker online, it looks like a wonderful bag! I guess the company is no more, maybe I'll come across one used but in good condition one...
  4. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Sounds like a good idea! Those storage bins come in all sorts of configurations, I'll figure out something that'll work. I like the idea of a box in a bag, more protection with a lid that can be...
  5. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    After listening to all the good advice I made the plunge - Norma it is! Upon closer examination, I think the fine-tuned movements allowed by each standard will serve well for control. While geared...
  6. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Feel free to PM, CreationBear, and thank you!

    After reading very carefully the hack devised by Neil, it is indeed a very clever and effective way to compact the 8x10 system for packing. Something...
  7. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks so much Bernice, CreationBear, Neil and jnantz for taking the time to educate me about LF. If I can ask another question, where is a good site to purchase a sinar? As I mentioned earlier,...
  8. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Many thanks to everyone who has commented! At this point I think I'm leaning toward the sinar f2, there are some possible good deals out there within my budget. I'm a little worried about the...
  9. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Ha, jnantz and CreationBear, last night I was thinking the same thing - 5x7 with reducing back! For contact printing (another future project of mine)...there's no harm looking at all the...
  10. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks Michael for showing how the sinar F can be broken down - there may be some creative ways to get the camera into a more portable package after all!
  11. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Yes, I'm solidly in the medium format macro masochist camp - why not go bigger!;)
  12. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks for you info, Bernice, and others! I'm seriously considering a monorail - much greater movements and control is definitely appealing! Certainly the boxy format of the technical cameras is...
  13. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks CreationBear, looks like my pack is going to get bigger! The options your present for carrying a monorail might work for me. Gabe's picture is wonderful!
  14. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks Drew, I'll check out the Sinar as a possible camera to pack. It sounds like a great camera for macro!
  15. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    I love the look of your camera, beautiful! Thanks for bringing up a possible camera I perhaps discounted too soon...I've discovered there have been many past discussions about using monorails for...
  16. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks r.e. for your comments and suggestions. As for my budget, I'm one of those ebayers buying old cameras that are in decent shape and getting by (many times the cameras are great, sometimes...
  17. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks for the comments, Havoc. That's quite the 645 rig you haul around, you've provided a whole new perspective on the weight of the Wista + equipment, thank you! Thankfully, I have a very sturdy...
  18. Re: Hello from Williamsburg, KY - just about to jump into the LF pool!

    Thanks Mark, I look forward to sharing my LF photos and receiving feedback. I'm a very enthusiastic amateur always striving to reach the vision/ideal of the picture in my head realized on film....
  19. Re: Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Thanks for the information! 150-180mm lens for macro work sounds good, though the longer bellows of the Wista may help in this regard. I'm not that familiar with the practicality of a 'tophat' in...
  20. Hunting for that special 4x5, my first LF camera

    Hi folks, newbie to LFPF and about to jump into the LF pool. I've learned so much reading various posts (thanks to all!) and think I've narrowed camera choices to two. It was mentioned to me at...
  21. Re: Hello from Williamsburg, KY - just about to jump into the LF pool!

    Thanks, I'm thrilled to be here! I'm very much looking forward to seeing that first negative developed...
  22. Re: Hello from Williamsburg, KY - just about to jump into the LF pool!

    Thanks 'Tin Can'! I'm glad to be here.
  23. Re: Hello from Williamsburg, KY - just about to jump into the LF pool!

    Hi, nice to meet you! I travel down to K'ville every once in awhile. Was raised there but now prefer the quiet rural life! If you get a chance, check out the hills of Eastern KY, trails are a lot...

    Re: Post Your Hiking Photos - Any Format

    Wonderful shot! What do you think about the 100 acros? Looks great here!
  25. Hello from Williamsburg, KY - just about to jump into the LF pool!

    Hello all, I'm excited to join this forum! Soon I will purchase my first large format (4x5) to get the artistic controls that can't be gained via the medium format cameras I've used. LF is a great...
