    Re: What is anti-Newton ring glass exactly

    Image won’t be blurred if one has AN glass on the bottom but it could be slightly diffused. After all, Gepe made medium format glass mounts and some had AN glass on both sides.

    I'm trying to diagnose light leaks. Do these look like they are camera back related or film carrier related? These leaks are almost always in this basic spot.

    Different lenses of the same focal length from the same manufacturers can require different boards for the turret due to the physical length of the rear lens group.

    If you mount the fresnel on top of the gg there is no change to the positioning of the ground side of your gg. So focusing will be just as accurate as long as you focus your loupe on the ground side...

    The factory should be easily able to provide a means of doing this, it only involves a clip on each end of the gg.

    A fresnel does 2 things:

    2 even outs the illumination on the gg edge to edge.

    Or
